The Mt. UT Kangri is located in the vicinity of Rumtse village on Leh-Manali highway near Taglang-La (17482ft). This beautiful snow covered peak is recently explored and successfully climbed by local mountaineers from the Ladakh Mountain Guides Association (LMGA) in 2019. This peak is the best for those who have just entered in mountaineering field and planning to do a six-thousander in the beginning. In other words, we can say it is the replacement to the Mt. Stok Kangri (6153M), which used to be a trekking peak during summers and technical during winters. Mt. Stok Kangri is banned by leh administration since 2020 to preserve flora and fauna. So UT Kangri has been emerged as a suitable alternate to Mt Stok kangri and attracting a large number of climbers and mountain lovers.

           Mt. UT Kangri is a beautiful peak which requires prior experience in high-altitude trekking. The summit day is the longest and most exhausting day of the expedition, lasting around 08-10 hours. However, summit of UT Kangri presents breathtaking views of the surroundings.
