I am flying into ladakh may 3rd to may 14th. I was planning on acclimatizing the 3rd and 4th and trekking down towards stok kangri just to get in the valley and checking out leh. The 5th to 12th i wanted to travel to Merak in Pangong Region to climb Pangong Range and view Pangong Tso. Is there a more practical/beautiful range to do some high altitude climbing and trekking without guides or ropes. The Karakorem Range is ideal but i hear it is very tough to get permits to trek from india.
Thanks for any help,
