Mt. Kang-Yatse is located in the Markha Valley Trail in the Ladakh region. The mountain has divided into 2 summits which is Mt. Kang-Yatse - I ( which is 6400m in the Eastern direction) and Mt. Kang-Yatse - II ( which is 6250m in the western direction). Both the summit is quite technical but more often Kang-Yatse II is very easy and often climbed.
You must fly to Delhi, then to Leh in the Union Territory of Ladakh Region. After you visit in Leh We strongly recommended acclimatized yourself for at-least 48 Hours to fully adjust your body with Mountain. Before you starting your expedition we recommended do some short trek in Ladakh like Zinchen to Stok Trek via Stok-la , Sham Valley trek and More.
If you do Markha valley trek is the usual way of getting there, as it provides a good
acclimatization. It will take you some 5 days to reached at the base camp, located at 5100m and your body as well physically prepared for the Expedition
