Overview

The Himalayas, 73 per cent of which lies in India, is dotted with astonishingly beautiful and awe-inspiring ranges and peaks. In the Mount Nun Expedition, Shikhar Travels, one of India’s oldest Adventure travel companies, brings to its guests, a slice of the most ostentatious serenity and natural beauty of Jammu & Kashmir combined with the expedition to scale the state’s highest summit Mount Nun (7,135 m).

Mount Nun is also the highest peak in the Zanskar range and is part of the Nun-Kun, a twin-summit mountain massif separated from each-other by a high snowy plateau of four kilometres. The Mount Nun-Kun massif is the most stunning peaks of the famous Suru Valley that is adorned with a number of spectacular peaks.

And before you embark on the expedition Shikhar Travels brings you a slice of ancient Buddhist practices through centuries old monasteries of Hemis, Thiksey and Shey and the experience of exploring the last Shangri La, Ladakh.
