Topic - Ladakh peaks (in May)

Kaito - on 08 Mar 2013
I am planning on climbing Stok Kangri in early May this year. I have a few years of alpine experience (self sufficient/done Mont Blanc etc). I have never been to the Himalayas before and would much appreciate advice from anyone who has climbed in the Ladakh region.

I've read that it is an easy(ish) trek in summer months and can be a managable peak in the winter.

I understand May is on the tail end of the winter season so advice on conditions / gear needed / decent maps etc would be very useful!
e.g. full down expedition suit or would just down jacket and a load of layers suffice for the summit?
