    Nun is the highest peak in between Zanskar and Kargil regions of Ladakh in the Indian Himalayas. The approach to Nun Base Camp is appealingly short and easily accessible by road. You will acclimatise on the easier Stok Kangri (6,121m / 20,082ft), the highest mountain in the Stok Range. This is your opportunity to summit two stunning Himalayan mountains.

    Guided Tours

    • Ri Guides

      Ri Guides specialises in organising mountaineering expeditions and treks in the Indian Himalayan mountain ranges. Our goal is to create safe mountaineering and trekking experiences while sharing a sense of responsibility towards the mountains and its environment. We follow Leave No Trace environmental standards and work with the local people. We climb on less crowded mountains, go to more remote locations and keep our groups to a limited number of climbers. We also organise customised trips and provide logistical support.

    • The Nun Kun mountain massif consists of a pair of Himalayan peaks: Nun, 7,135 m (23,409 ft) and its neighbor peak Kun, 7,077 m (23,218 ft).[3] Nun is the highest peak in the part of the Himalayan range lying on the Indian side of the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. (There are higher peaks in the Indian part of the Karakoram range.) The massif is located near the Suru valley, about 250 km (160 mi) east of Srinagar, the state capital. Kun is located north of Nun and is separated from it by a snowy plateau of about 4 km (2.5 mi) in length. Pinnacle Peak, 6,930 m (22,736 ft), is the third highest summit of the group. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nun_Kun
