  • Saser Kangri I is the highest peak in the Saser Muztagh in easternmost subrange of Karakoram. The peak locates in the northernmost region of Laddakh in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. SaserKangri means “Yellow Mountain” derived from its bright yellow granite rock which can be seen clearly from summit ridges. The peak lays in the great Karakorm range bounded by the Nubra river to the west and Shyok river to the east and south. The Saserri is surrounded by seven glaciers and is defended by precipitous rock an ice faces. The SaserKangrimounatins lay in the central Asian trade route between India Tibet and Russia. SaserKangrimassif consists of 6 peaks and SaserKangri I is the highest among Saserpeaks and the massif lies toward the northwestern end of Saser Muztagh the massif locates at the head of north ShukpaKunchang Glacier, a major glacier which drains the eastern slopes of the group. The Sakang and Phukpoche glacier head on the western side of the group and drains into the Nubra river. The SaserKangri Iwas first climbed in 1972 and remains among most technical and physically demanding peak in the country.
  • The best time to go for the Stok Kangri peak expedition is from May to mid-October. At this time of the year, the weather is During this time, the climate is pleasant and the temperature ranges between 20 and 30°C in the daytime in the Ladakh region.
  • The expedition starts driving from Leh to Nubra and then to Panamik the last village before entering into the central Asian trade route. Trekking to the transit camp through ravine route is steep and precipitous over mild rock surfaces. The camp is fixed after hours of trek alongside a fairly level spot. At this campsite one can see the Saser Kangri IV a snow and ice cone also known as cloud peak. Next morning we will climb over boulders glacial moraines to establish the base camp (4900m.). Other day all the loads will be distributed and requisite equipment's will be ferried to the higher camps. We will move over vast moraines and icy patches up to the ABC (5200m.). Then move forward to camp I through numerous crevasses  on to the snout of Phukpoche glacier. The camp I (5750m.)is fixed in the middle of vast ice field near to the formidable col. Before commencing toward camp II a 500 m. ice wall mixed of snow and rock stands fiercely at 70- 85 degrees. Camp II is located at the altitude of 6180m. owing notorious winds and least space to camp. Then climbing toward camp III inclines over 1000m of varied slopes consisting ice snow and a 200m. cornice ridgeline before reaching the campsite. The technicalities are encountered till the camp III (6950m.)with sheer challenges but further ahead to the summit the consequences ease a bit. Next  we will attack the Saser IV over reasonable slants engulfed with deep snowand reaching the top of the peak a ridge will lead us to the mighty Saser I. but before attempting the summit of Saser Kangri I we have to fix summit camp as near as below the peak. The distance between Saser IV and Saser I is vast and takes a lot of effort and time to achieve the pinnacle. At summit camp (7200m.)we will wait for the weather to favor, because any inappropriate decision will turn into devastating event so all requisite measures are to be confirmed between the team. While having a weather window we will hit the summit and achieve it by tedious climbing. After hours of extreme push we will reach at the top of Saser Kangri I (7672m.). Atop the secluded Karakoram massifs vast glacier fields dangerous rock formations and number of unknown peaks tower enormously in the region. The summit offers glorious vistas of Saser Kangri Peaks,  Saltoro Kangri and various dangerous Himalayan peaks stretching distantly into India and Pakistan. We will spend some time and return back safely to the lower camps. The expedition will not end until we reach at the safer altitude at Base camp where we can have sigh over triumph and relax in the much favorable atmosphere. Here we will wind up all the things and return back to Nubra and so on to Leh over Khardung la. At Leh city our expedition will end and everyone will take beautiful memories of hardships and conquer back with them.

As you know every mountainous excursion demands a precise planning, a planning with adequate pliability of observing and tackling situations, held all as by overcoming mind body and soul throughout the incredible Himalayan journey.

So here are some aspects regarding SASER KANGRI I EXPEDITION preparation:

Physically – A trek demands physical endurance, to prepare for each trek you should work out a month before joining a program.  Build up the adequate strength in your legs by running and exercising every day to boost up your endurance. Stop smoking and boost your lungs doing breathing exercises at routine basis two times a day, which will help acclimatize the conditions while being resilient on the trek. Take active part in outdoor games, Yoga and any other cardiac exercises.

Mentally – Mental preparation is key, equally as important as physical training requisite for a trek. Before joining any trek take pleasure in your daily routines, eat well, take rest properly and relax. Do not stress your mind by unnecessary predictions about the trek. Be with your best friends to get motivated and relax your mind. Because pre trek assumptions are not worthy because once you join the trek and meet with rest of the pack will bring encouragement and excitement. The mental preparedness will build through the entire trek conditions. And the physical drawbacks will affect the mind. So pay close attention to various parts of the body and consciously let them loosen up as you trek. When you trek try to relax your body, especially your hips. If you’re on a winding downhill trail or on a panicking slant, think of each step as part of a simple dance and enjoy the natural rhythms that the terrain and your body can find together cautiously. Experiment with different ways of walking as a way of finding enjoyment beyond the goal of reaching a destination. The main key to stay mentally fit is to enjoy the route and not to pressurize the mind.

Technically- Gear up yourself with perfect size trekking shoes and walk with it. Use 60ltr. Backpack in a daily routine with some weight inside it, so you become used to carrying loads. Buy a trekking pole, water bottle, warm socks, thermals, fleece, feather jackets, trousers, poncho,  flip flops, electronics such as power bank, camera (DSLR or digital camera).
