Just spent 3 days away at extreme high altitude including 36 hours at 5000m approximately 18000 feet at the Stok Kangri Base Camp under canvas. Totally off-grid and 7 hours trek away from a road or civilisation.
Found the long hard trekking very tough because I’m simply not used to walking on stones so much.
Anyway managed everything and no adverse effects, just very tired.
So just 3 very easy days now before start.
Tomorrow morning we all leave for the Nubra Valley camp site near the start for all races. It’s about a 4-5 hour rough drive from Leh.
