Putha Hiunchuli Expedition Highlights

  • Trek through a remote and pristine area of north-west area of Nepal
  • See the beautiful Dhaulagiri range close up
  • Challenging expedition adventure
  • Trek through Tibet-like landscape and culture
  • Great as preparation for a future 8,000m climb
  • Fly in and out from the lowlands of Nepal, a very different landscape

This climb begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj in the steamy lowlands of the country. From here take a short flight to Juphal in Dolpo where the trek to the peak begins. We will spend 14 days climbing before trekking back to Juphal and onwards to Kathmandu.

There is no denying the days are long between camps (approximately 6 hours but remember you are trekking in thin air) so a great level of fitness is required to both complete and enjoy this adventure. The trek to base camp will take 6 days up to the altitude of 4,575m. This gives plenty of time to acclimatize.

Above base camp we will establish two camps. Up here the route is snow and ice so previous experience with crampons and ice axe is recommended. Known as the easiest of the 7,000m peaks this is a 28 day trek and climb at constant high altitude, which should be taken into consideration when deciding whether this climb is for you.

After our successful climb we trek back to Juphal and fly back to Nepalgunj and on to Kathmandu.

Best Experience Ever!

This was by far one of the coolest things i’ve done in my entire life. Super challenging and super rewarding all at once! Madan and Rupesh were some of the greatest trek guides that I’ve ever had on any continent – they were so knowledgeable about the history of the trek and they ensured that we were deeply rooted in the cultural experience along the trek. They were also incredibly caring – which is important when you are trekking to new altitudes that you have never been before.
