I have not made any specific plans, but am considering heading there (Leh/Ladakh region) for a few weeks in May/June. I have never been to the Himalayas, but I have reasonable climbing experience in the Alps. I would be up for some rock climbing, ice climbing, and hiking. High altitude mountaineering and staying in tents is new for me, not what I am particularly looking for. Sound me out if we can do something together. Cheers,

Hi there,
I am in India and looking to do some 6000m peaks in Himachal and Ladak in alpine style. I have done Stok Krangri in 2010, there is another peak in the area about 6400m and it's not technical as well, like Stok.

LoneRangerMe too


I plan to be there from 17 May to 20 Jun. Would you like to confirm your interest in partnering with me, which weeks?

jhsburnLets meet up


Hi TT and Angel,

I am definitely keen to meet up and do some mountains together. I am keen on doing some altitude treks first then summits when a bit more of the snow melts.

Angel - I definitely want to do the 6400m before I leave.
TT - we could meet up on the 17th and 18th and plan. Do you have much ice climbing experience. Mentok 1 and 2 have some faces I would be interested in.

I have been using this great link for a bit of research and information

Angel and I have been discussing as well, she plans to arrive early June I think, but she has been in the Himalayas the last couple of months, so she is fully acclimatized.

As for me, coming from sea level Mumbai, I too would prefer to do some trekking (and cycling if I can hire locally) first week or two or three. I am fairly confident those 6000'ers you are discussing is well below the technical difficulty of what I have done in the Alps, but this being my first trip to Himalayas, I dont' want to over-commit, I am happy so long as I am doing something (rock, hike, alpine) within my limits.

I am coming with a flexible plan, I will probably meet up some folks from the Bangalore and Mumbai climbing communities as well, and I am happy climbing with small groups or in pairs.

Angel RobledoJune for sure

Hi James and TT,
I will arrive in Leh beginning of June, I would do again Stok Krangi, it's possible in 3 days. Then go for 6400m and then 7000m, James are you interesting on doing 7000m? Those 6000m peaks in Ladakh is easy to get permit, 2500 rupees per person and We can get in Leh, for more than 7000m is a expedition. James when you arrive in Leh? How long are you staying?

LoneRangerchange in dates


Everyone I have been talking to says May is too early for anything at Leh, so I am thinking of pushing back my trip by 2 weeks, current plan is to arrive in the first week of June.

Angel Robledocool

Angel Robledo

good, same as me. I told the same thing to TT, he changed his plans and going to Manali before Leh. Hey James, why don't you come to Nepal before India? There is a nice peak Chulu East that I am planning to climb on the Annapurna circuit. I am going tomorrow to Langtang and coming back in about 10 days.

Angel - I am all booked up for Leh. Decided to arrive early May to allow for time to acclimatize and was hoping for an early spring/summer. Not sure about a 7000m mountain, they are normally very weather dependent meaning you need a lot of time and you can still not get a chance due to poor weather conditions. I would prefer to improve a few ice climbing techniques and rock climbing skills.
See you both at the beginning of June.

I've arrived - everything has just opened and people are doing the treks and crossing the passes. I am doing the Marthka trail starting Monday. Let me know when you arrive - I am staying in the Padma Guest House

LoneRangerMy itinerary


I am reaching Leh by 22nd May and try to set base in Padma Guest House. I will also visit Gravi T Bouldering cafe:
S1, 2nd Floor, Raku Complex, Fort Road,, Leh, India 194101
09811742903, 09419178323, 09858704704

We can rendezvous at Gravi T or Padma GH (I will update them with my coordinates). Plan to do rock-climbing and hiking the first few days, will be great to catch up with you two as soon as you are available.

I am with you till about 12th June and pretty much happy to do whatever you do.

Between 13-20 June I might go to Manali to meet a friend. After that I have a few days free, I will stay back at Manali or return to Leh (depending on where i have climbing partners), and fly out from either of these places around 26th June.

My mobile num will be 0981 932 7756 ; won't be checking email regularly from 19th May.

I will be bringing my ice/rock climbing gear, a sleeping bag and mat (no tent, cooking stuff, but can share yours if camping is required for our missions).

Look forward to meeting you guys soon.

Is either of you bringing any rope? I am already close to my 20 kg baggage allowance and have to decide fast, which one or two ropes to bring. I am thinking of bringing one half rope 60m (ideal for mountaineering), and skip the 70 single rope if one of you brings a single rope of any reasonable length.
