Marka Valley & Kanga Yatze II Peak

 

Overview

     Kang Yatze situated at elevation 21,000 ft is a mountain located at the end of the Markha valley in the Himalayas in the Ladakh region of Himalayas. The mountain has two main summits, the lower western peak (Kang Yatze II) is easier (Alpine PD) and more frequently climbed, although lower at about 6200m. The higher eastern peak is the true summit (Kang Yatze I) although less frequently climbed as it is across a technically difficult knife-edge traverse. An alternative is to climb the North East ridge then directly up the steep snow face (Alpine AD+/D-).
Kang Yatze (6401m) is the highest peak in central Ladakh and centre of a range of interesting and accessible 5000m and 6000m summits. Ladakh is one of the premier trekking destinations in the Himalaya, a land of stark and stunning beauty. Its jagged peaks and richly coloured rocks are punctuated by valley oases filled with green willows and hilltop monasteries. The climate is generally dry and the mountains lie in the rain shadow of the greater Himalayan range, so are rarely affected by the monsoon.
On the mountain we offer two routes: Kang Yatze I (6401m) is a challenging alpine climb of AD (Scottish grade II/III) standard with slopes to 55deg and some pitched climbing, suitable for mountaineers with previous technical experience in the Alps. Kang Yatze II (6245m) is an easier trekking peak, physically demanding but suitable for trekkers and novice mountaineers. The trip is pitched to suit a wide range of experiences and interests, and is an ideal first Himalayan Climbing venture.
