Ladakh, August 9 – 23, seeking partners

I will be in Ladakh from 9 – 23.08 for trekking, I really want to trek Stok Kangri Mt (6000m) and therefore will be doing acclimatisation trek before it, probably in Markha Valley. Each trek should take about 4-5 days. In Markha Valley it’s possible to stay in homestay, but for Stok Kangri will need to rent a tent and some gear, and a guide/porter. In free time also plan to visit monasteries and famous alpine lakes in that area. Looking for trekking partners to share the costs, experience, for safety, and of course for fun too.

Best wishes!

  1. Hi Maria,

    I would be very interested for this trek, as Ladakh was in my travel list since long. I’m really interested to visit this rugged beauty for its landscape, monasteries and many more.

    Please write back to me if I sound interesting.


    • Hi!Can you tell me more about your plan?How many days you think you will spend in Ladakh, what about your dates?Are u travelling on your own?

  2. hiii Maria Stolbova..i m going for Stok Kangri mt…cn we join each other …send me ur rgt date …sure cn i join u…with love sukh…where r u thse time i m in dharmshala

  3. Hey Maria,

    this sounds fascinating and something on my radar since a long time. Though I supposed i can spare about 10-12 days. I don’t have a definite plan so i’d love to join your travel plans for that period.

    But having a guide kinda defeats the purpose. It’s better to go independent and all alone.

    I’m 21, from Mumbai. Engineering Student.



    • Hi, guys
      I’d still prefer to have at least 1 guide or 1 porter, I’m not going totally alone.

  4. Hi Maria, I am looking to do some trekking in August and your dates match my schedule. Could you kindly share additional details of your itinerary if interested? I am ok with your overall plan for the acclimatisation trek, and Stok Kangri is something I am keen to do as well.

    I am 26, male, working in Bangalore. I have fair bit of trekking experience (last one being the Everest base camp route in 2012).
