ABOUT Putha Hiunchuli (7246m) Expedition

Mount Putha Hinchuli is one most popular 7000 meter peak in Nepal which is situated in western part of Nepal i.e. Dolpo region. This peak most climbed peak in its category. This peak was ascended by a British team in 1954. This peak is a rarely climbed with two distinct faces: a steep, technical ridge climb pioneered by the Japanese in the early 70s and a much easier snow climb up the northern flanks where the average angle does not exceed 35 degrees.  The trip starts from Kathmandu, flies to Dolpo airport and start trek from Juphal and follows the route of Dunai, Tarakot, Musi Khola Kagkot- Yak Kharka and then will be reach Base camp of Mount Putha Hiunchuli.

Puthahiunchuli Base Camp is situated at an altitude of 4575m and from there we set up 3 camps (Camp I- 533m, Camp II-5940m, Camp III- 6475m) before attempting the summit. Experienced and expert climbing guide of Sherpa Shepherds leads you to the summit of Puthahiunchuli.  Normally we put up C1 at the beginning of the glacier.  From Camp-1 to Camp -, it is possible to use ski, as there are not as many crevasses.  This route is quite clear, so you can set up camp on rock band. On summit day from 5,700m, they leave early in the morning about 4 A.M. And weather should be clear. Climbing route is long from camp. Only false summit can be seen from route. Base Camp 4,800m, Camp I -5,300m, Camp II -6,700m- and make Summit from camp 2.
