6000 m peaks in Ladakh

Micah,I am planning to do Chamser Kangri or some other 6000m plus mountain in Ladakh. Stok and Goleb Kangri are on my list along with Chamser. I recently climbed Kilimanjaro which is slightly under 6000m. My main concern is that I am afraid of heights. Strange huh? But I love high altitudes. Kilimanjaro was perfect, no steep climbs, no narrow scary paths etc. Just a tough walk up. I am told Stok has a 200m stretch that is scary. Last thing I want is for me to have severe vertigo issues just before summiting. I am told Goleb and Chamser don’t have so called scary parts to them. What’s your opinion based on your experience.Thanks.

I haven’t climbed Goleb

I haven’t climbed Goleb Kangri, there is a bit of exposure at the end of Stok. Chamser Kangri can be done without much exposure. Though my little sister made it up Stok and she doesn’t like exposure either though it took a bit of encouragement at times. Just to call you out.
