Best Time: July to September
Tour Route: Leh - Stok - Goleb Kangri - Stok - Leh
Goleb in Ladakhi means flat-head and this peak's summit is exactly that. The last stretch of the peak is technical and you require a little bit of knowledge about mountaineering for attempting this peak. Go-Leb is also close to Leh and to summit the peak you need at least 4-5 days.
Morning drive to Stok village is about 15 kms from Leh. Start walking from the trekking point along the stream. It is long and cumbersome walk through the valley. There are many shepherd camps in the different entrances of the sub valleys. The Mankarmo Camp is at the point from where the valley turns southward. It is possible to trek up to the first base camp in a day, but to get acclimatized it is recommended to make it in two days. The Camp at Mankarmo is on the river bed. There are no toilet facilities.
Keep walking in the same direction for around 30 minutes and then head towards southward. It involves crossing the stream at several points during the forward march. You reach at the camp after vertical ascent. Overnight in Camp.
Full rest for acclamatization or Spare in case of Bad weather. Today you can also walk up to the advance base camp for acclimatization. The trail leads you towards west and then southward from the top of the hill. You will be passing through a few glaciers before you reach the advance base camp from where you start crossing the glacier. Overnight in Camp.
Keep your torch and other climbing gears ready before you set off early morning around at least by 4 am. Start Climbing Goleb Khangri, which is more technical at the summit. You can follow the same route back to the camp. Overnight in Camp
