Located in the beautiful Markha Valley of Ladakh, Kang Yatse II and Dzo Jongo are two of the most prominent peaks in the region. While Kang Yatse II is quite popular among the trekking community, Dzo Jongo remains quite an offbeat one. When you embark on a journey two these twin peaks, you can spot Kang Yatse II pretty soon into the trek, while Dzo Jongo remains a mystery until you reach the base camp. This is what makes climbing this peak even more interesting. This is a newly launched trek by Trek The Himalayas, and we encourage all adventure enthusiasts to come join us in this epic adventure!

On this 13-day long trek, we will start our journey from the picturesque city of Leh onwards to the Hemis National Park. Markha Valley lies inside the Hemis National Park, which is known for its rich biodiversity. You may spot several Himalayan species of flora and fauna. As you trek through the valley, Mt. Kang Yatse II dominates the skyline, a wonderful sight to behold. A little further from Kang Yatse II lies the mysterious Dzo Jongo peak, which comes into view all of a sudden as you reach the base camp. So if you are looking for adrenaline-pumping treks in Leh, this is definitely a good choice.

The Kang Yatse II Peak lies at an altitude of 6270 m while the Dzo Jongo Peak is slightly lower at an altitude of 6240 m. The Kang Yatse II is a fairly technical climb while Dzo Jongo isn’t purely technical. However, you need a good deal of mountaineering experience, and physical and mental endurance to complete the trek. The picturesque landscapes of the rocky mountain will guide you along the way. The challenges of summitting two 6000 m are many but with grit, morale, and determination, when you climb the peaks you will be filled with a sense of unparalleled  joy and accomplishment. 

The best thing about this trek is that when you do this trek you will not just be doing one expedition but it is a culmination of three great treks – the Kang Yatse II Expedition, the Dzo Jongo Expedition and the Markha Valley Trek, all in one! When trekking in Ladakh, you shouldn’t definitely miss out on this. So what are you waiting for, brace yourself for some truly demanding days and the adventure of a lifetime!

If by a rare consequence TTH calls off/cancels a trek:

At TTH, we almost never call off or cancel our treks. But in the rare event that we do call off or cancel a trek due to any unforeseen circumstances or natural catastrophes like continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that prevents us from carrying out a trek in a safe manner, unforeseeable circumstances like local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any such situations that prevents a safe trekking experience, TTH will issue a voucher summing up to the same amount as your trek fee. The voucher can be redeemed on any of the treks over a period of the next year.


  • The voucher is also not issued if for any reason you have to come down from the trek. The trek leader may send you down from the trek, owing to reasons like lack of fitness, AMS, blood pressure, turn-around-time, health issues, or if you are found smoking/ drinking, or breaking the rules of the trek. Vouchers are issued only when the whole trek is cancelled or called off on behalf of TTH.

In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

As we mention always, weather conditions at high altitudes are extremely unpredictable and can change at any time of any day. Also, situations like natural calamities or political unrest, pandemics and lockdowns, etc are out of our control and if an event cannot run under any such circumstances that we do not directly have control over then we will try to give you an alternative trek, which means your trek will be shifted from one trek to another, which will be safer and more favourable.

In these cases, a voucher is issued to mitigate the difference in cost between the two treks. You can redeem the voucher at any time over a period of one year from the date of issue. A refund fee or refund of the difference is not applicable.
