Mountains & Monasteries itinerary:
"An early morning start is essential for those eager to reach the summit. In late summer, the route is usually free of snow and a trail leads us up to the ridge at about 19,000 feet. From here it's a relatively short hike/scramble to the summit at just over 20,000 feet! There are commanding views of Kang Yatze to the Southeast, the Ladakh range that we crossed over to the North, and the entire Eastern Karakorams. We return back to our basecamp and celebrate our efforts."
