Putha Hiunchuli Expedition
Click to Enlarge

Putha Hiunchuli is the westernmost peak of the Dhaulagiri long range to the west of Annapurna South of Ganesh Himal standing on the serene. Putha Hiunchuli is the last 7000m marking the end of the snow-capped range and also sometimes referred to as Dhaulagiri VI. Jimmy Roberts, a legendary explorer, climber and most possibly the father of modern-day trekking in Nepal, first climbed this peak on 11/11/1954 also a Nepali Sherpa Ang Nyima Sherpa reached to the summit on the same day.

This peak  is rarely climbed which has 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. We climbed this peak ourselves successfully twice on the same season in 1978 and few times later. Not many expedition team come to climb this peak, though it is one of the most magnificent, therefore we have the full chance to explore ourselves and avoid the crowds. The 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.

We first climbed Putha Hiunchuli ourselves in 1978, and being ourselves well knowledgeable about the expedition we are committed to provide  professional service to make the expedition a success.
