Trip Grade
TripGrade: Very Strenuous
Very Strenuous Trekking covers 4000 meters to 6000 meters. No doubt, your physical fitness, and acclimatization are the must. Generally, you walk about 7 hrs every day, but the altitude becomes an obstacle and it is really tough to walk that much. You have to cross the Himalayan passes using basic climbing equipment. Even the trail is steep and may be slippery.

Overview

Putha Hiunchuli is a beautiful peak in the wonderful and mysterious Dolpo region. This wornderful mountain stands in Nepal's northwestern region. As part of the Dhaulagiri Himalayan Ranges, it is between the massifs of Dhaulagiri and Kanjiroba Himal. Dhaulagiri VI is another name for it. The Putha Hiunchuli is a unique and lonesome mountain which is rarely climbed.

In comparison to other technical mountain excursions, this peak has fewer technical obstacles. However, for the Putha Hiunchuli Expedition, good physical condition and previous peak climbing expertise are highly advised. In 1954, Jimmy Roberts and a British Expedition team became the first to reach the summit of Mt. Putha Hiunchuli. The Putha Hiunchuli Expedition is a fantastic opportunity for experienced climbers to explore the lesser-known Dolpo region while getting a once-in-a-lifetime experience of reaching the top of Mt. Putha Hiunchuli.

We'll take a short flight to Nepalgunj, a southern town city in western Nepal, after a full day of touring in Kathmandu. We'll take another spectacular flight from Nepalgunj to Jhuphal in the lower Dolpo. Then we will begin our trip by following the trail to Dunai, which takes us past cultural communities and highly forested areas. Lower Dolpo's administrative and commerce centers are both located in Dunai. We continue on the path for a few days, passing through Tarakot, Musikhola, Kakot, and Phedi villages on our way to Putha Hiunchuli Base Camp.

Our Sherpa crew will inspect our climbing equipment and health status as soon as we arrive at base camp. Our experienced climbing professionals gave the directions and we started towards the summit of Mount Putha Hiunchuli, fully equipped and acclimatized. Our strenuous ascent to the summit is rewarded with beautiful views of the Dolpo region's valleys and high peaks.

Roped-up glacier climbing including crevasse crossings is part of the Mt. Putha Hiunchuli Expedition. The snow slopes reach a maximum of 40 degrees. On the tougher areas of the climb, fixed ropes will be used, however most of the climbing will be done in roped teams. Despite the fact that our Sherpa team will set up camps on the mountain and transport food and fuel, we expect our team members to bring their own equipment. The climbing session will last two weeks, giving you plenty of time to acclimate and prepare for the peak. Above base camp, we plan to use three camps: Camp 1 at 5,400 meters, Camp 2 at 6,200 meters and Camp 3 at 6,600 meters.
