It was my girlfriend's idea, she wanted a challenge when she was given some all too rare time off work over the summer. So off we went to India for 2 weeks in August to climb Stok Kangri, the highest (6153m) peak in Ladakh.
I'd been over 6000 before, but in the Andes where you can practically drive up 2/3rds of most of the tourist peaks, this was a 7 day hike battling illness and steep sided passes.
A massive debt of thanks to all of the guides for helping us battle up that hill and to my girlfriend for having the chutzpah to carry off such a daring endeavour!
