I am visiting Leh in early January and I have been unable to locate any guides. I emailed about eight agencies but have no response. Can someone help connect me?

Iíve read there is great ice climbing in some of the valleys from Leh but cannot find more information about equipment or guides. Ideally I want to find an ice climbing guide.

Thank you so much for your help and advice.

HI Brice,

Welcome to IM, dont know much about the winter climbing, I trek in summer but most of the agencies will be closed - or at least the shopfronts will be. Leh has a selection of reasonable equipment for hire in summer.

You might try my friend Tsering Namgyal - of check Facebook under Tsering Namgyal, there might be several but you can easily see that he is a guide. He is trustworthy, competent and a good cook/guide. I have trekked with him for years. I know he climbs peaks at the 6000 level but he is not a qualified mountain guide in the US or Uk sense. That said, he has got me out of a few scrapes. I dont have a phone for him although he check emails regularly - but the internet in Ladakh is intermittent, facebook may be a better bet.

The other possibility is run by my old mates Sunder Namgil and Paddy, they dont operate in Ladakh in winter but they should have some numbers incl Namgyal's. Mention me and good luck
