INTRODUCTION

The Himalayas, 73 percent of which lies in India, is dotted with astonishingly beautiful and awe-inspiring ranges and peaks. In the Mount Nun Expedition, Himalayan yeti, one of the leading adventure company brings to its guests, a slice of the most ostentatious serenity and natural beauty of Jammu & Kashmir combined with the expedition to scale the state’s highest summit Mount Nun (7,135 m). Mount Nun is also the highest peak in the Zanskar range and is part of the Nun-Kun, a twin-summit mountain massif separated from each other by a high snowy plateau of four kilometres. The Mount Nun-Kun massif is the most stunning peaks of the famous Suru Valley that is adorned with a number of spectacular peaks.

Route details and general observation

There will be three camps after the BC and the distances between these camps are quite long. Advance Base Camp (ABC), which is referred by Jagged Globe, would be located at 4,750m. It is approached over rocky moraine, with ABC itself sited on flat, sandy moraine. From here, easy-angled snow slopes are followed up towards the West Ridge, where an ice fall needs to be negotiated to get established on the ridge. Camp 1 is reached by climbing on snow slopes of 50 to 55 degrees and will be placed at 5,950m. Camp 2 will be placed between 6,500m and 6,680m higher on the ridge. Above Camp 3 there are sections of mixed rock and ice and snow and ice up to 70 degrees.

HOW TO REACH LEH

 The easiest way to travel to Ladakh is by air. The nearest airport is Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport located in Leh. This airport is connected with many international airports in India like Delhi. It also receives flights from Srinagar, Jammu, Chandigarh and other common destinations in India.

  You can book private Jeeps or, HRTC and HPTDC operate daily Deluxe and ordinary bus services between Manali and Leh. The bus journey between Leh and Manali takes about 19 hours or two days with an overnight halt in camps at Sarchu or Pang. Manali-Leh highway of the 473 km has been serving as the second ways to reach Ladakh. It opens for traffic from around mid-June to early October.

 If you are planning to travel by train the closest railroad station is Jammu Tawi (700 km from Ladakh) which is all around associated with Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai.
