An elevation of 7135 meter, Nun Kun peak in Suru Valley watches over the entire Zanskar area. The higher peak in the Nun Kun massif, Mount Nuns glittering presence could be felt from the moment you set foot in Leh with the twin peaks manifesting brilliantly along the road to Kargil. To mount this peak is a task for darers with true grit. Intensive glacial formations, icefall slopes, thoroughly crevassed surfaces, knife-edge cliffs, vertical ice walls, and unpredictable weather beset the expedition to Nun with thrills of a thousand kinds.


Members of our team will be present to pick you up from the airport and transfer you to the hotel. We spend today at the IMF for briefing and registration.

n the morning we catch our flight for Leh, arriving here in a short couple of hours. From the airport, we transfer you to the hotel to check in and unwind. Guests can spend their time visiting the local attractions or resting.

We spend today to adjust to the change in altitude. This is considered vital to prevent the onset of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) further down the journey. The local attractions include Hemis, Sangam, Thikse and Namgyal Tsemo Monasteries, the Leh Palace, the Old Town, among others.

After breakfast, we depart for Kargil along the National Highway headed to Srinagar. Along the way, we visit the Kargil War Memorial, Gurdwara Pathar Sahib and its magnetic hill road, and the Lamayuru Gompa and its beautiful sandy landscape. We arrive at Kargil by night time and check in to our hotel for the night.

After breakfast, we depart for Tangul, which is the starting point of our expedition and is located in the Suru Valley. We can begin to see the visage of the Majestic Nunn Kun peak in the midst of the Zanskar ranges. As we approach Tangul, a better view of the Peak emerges, along with breathtaking views of the valley below. We set up camp at the end of the village and settle in for the night.

We begin our trek today as we head for the base camp. The trek ends by afternoon time, after which we set up camp and offload heavy carriage.
