  • Putha Hiunchuli 2019

    04. October 2019

    1 2 3 4 Overview Dates Dossier Itineary FAQ Services Mountain Overview Dhaulagiri VII (also known as ‘Putha Hiunchuli’) is the western most peak of the Dhaulagiri Range and an expedition to it is an adventure in the true sense of the word. The area is remote and simply reaching basecamp is a significant achievement.  Unlike many other 7000m mountains the peak itself present basically no technical difficulty it does however represents an attractive opportunity for those who want to climb very high. Do not discount this peak – it is still a very serious undertaking and provides excellent training for later 8,000m peaks. Overall it is probably the ‘easiest’ 7,000m peak in Nepal and presents an ideal opportunity for ski touring and ski or snowboard descents of a 7000+m peak.

  • Tititea/Mount Aspiring Guided Ascent Known as the “Matterhorn of the South” due to its asthetic shape, Mount Aspiring stands alone as the only 3000m peak outside of Mount Cook National Park.

  • 1 2 3 Overview Dates – $ Dossier Itineary FAQ Services Difficulty : 2/5 Fitness : 2/5 Duration : 24 Days Altitude 6128m Island Peak and Everest Basecamp 2017 Island Peak, or Imjase is an ideal introductory high altitude peak for those who have either some or limited experience at altitude above 4000m. The peak itself is reasonably non-technical and whilst prior experience of the use of crampons and ice axe is ideal it is not mandatory. The hardest part of climbing Island peak (if this is your first time to altitude) is actually in understanding your body’s adaptation to the process of acclimatisation and ensuring you take a slow approach to the peak. After our summit of island peak we will continue up to visit Everest Basecamp where you will get outstanding views of Everest / Nuptse / Pumori and the Khumbu Valley.  Having completed island peak we will be able to take out time trekking to basecamp and be fully acclimatised. Dates : 29th March to 21st April 2017 Duration : 24 days Meeting : Kathmandu Price : 4150USD (min 4 members)   Our Expedition notes contain a full outline of the expedition, itineary and equipment lists.
