Himchuli Trekking

The Dhaulagiri range is made up of some of the world's most impressive peaks. In this range, to the west of Annapurna South of Ganesh Himal, lies a long ridge at the end of which stands the serene Putha Hiunchuli. This mountain is the last 7000er marking the end of the snow-capped range.

Our trek begins at the trading town of Dunai, which is about a week's walk away from the German Base Camp situated at an altitude of 4,525m. The landscape during the approach walk is as enchanting as it is unique: a mineral world made of high cliffs and deep canyons.

Though the climb is technically challenging there are many possible routes that may be explored. Technically, the difficulty of the climb is comparable to any classical route of the French Alps, like Mont Blanc' normal route for example. Putha Hiunchuli's south slopes present easy access to the different summit's base camps but the ascents route is technically difficult due to the many ridges and seracs. The route on the north slope was rediscovered four years back, which crosses extremely remote and wild terrain.
