EARLY BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL TO GUARANTEE A PLACE ON THIS EXPEDITION.
Mount Kun was first offered as an expedition by Adventure Peaks in 2006. The twin peaks of Kun and Nun are located in the rugged and forbidding landscape of Zanskar in northern India and are the biggest in the region. These two towering peaks and their satellites; Barmal, White Needle and Pinnacle Peak form a horseshoe above the Suru river on the boarder of Kashmir and Zanskar. The route to Base Camp at the head of the Shafat glacier is at 4400m and accessible in a matter of days.
The ascent is a moderate snow and ice route suitable for those with previous climbing experience of Scottish 2/3 or Alpine AD.

It is vitally important that you have adequate travel insurance for your trip with Adventure Peaks. We recognise the complexity and variety of choice in the insurance market and know that many of you either have your own preferred insurer or have annual multi trip cover in place already. If this is the case, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your Adventure Peaks itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken.
Adventure Peaks do not provide any advice on travel insurance, although it is a requirement of our booking conditions that you have travel insurance which covers the activities which you are likely to be undertaking on your holiday. Cover must include emergency medical, helicopter evacuation, repatriation and rescue expenses.
It is strongly recommended that suitable cancellation insurance is purchased at the time of booking as all deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
