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.
