The second Trek & Mountain reader expedition of 2015, to Stok Kangri in the Indian Himalaya, has reached a successful conclusion with 8 members of the team reaching the summit on 24th August.
The challenging weather conditions, had left some questioning whether topping out was even a possibility, but the hard work of the team paid off as they braved snow and storms to make it to the top of the 6,153m peak. The team celebrated back in Leh with some good beer and music.

Trek & Mountain would like to thank the expedition sponsors – Rab, Polartec and Lowe Alpine – for their support and the top-quality kit which they supplied team members and which proved vital in reaching their objective!
Congratulations to the whole team!
