Kang Yatze expedition
Trek and a climb of a 6400m peak
From Nimaling everyone admires Kang Yatze, and lots of people talk about climbing it. Very few do. There is an easier route to the 6100m false summit but getting to the true summit is a real climb; but we can do it.
20 - high camp / Chukirmo 4070m over Kongmaru La 5150m
21 - trek Shang Sumdo, drive Leh 3505m
22 - Leh
Relax in Leh!
Day 23 - Tuesday 14 August - fly Delhi / optional and depart
We take the Leh-Delhi flight that should get us to Delhi by midday. You could plan on flying out late at night on 14 August, or very early morning 15 August but understand that the Leh-Delhi flight can occasionally be delayed; it is delayed by a day approx 5% of the time, ie one in 20 flights. This could seriously mess you up if you have lots of connecting flights to get you back home.
Day 24 - depart
This is the most cautious approach and then also leaves a little time in Delhi to have a look around.
Early departure option
Day 22 - fly Delhi
Skip the day in Leh to get back to work quickly... You can fly out of Delhi tonight or early tomorrow but understand that the Leh-Delhi flight can occasionally be delayed. The more cautious approach is to stay in Delhi and fly out on 14 August.
