course overview

Are you one of those risk takers, who wants to touch the clouds and kiss the sky? Have you climbed five and six thousand, and now are aiming higher? Is climbing the Mt. Everest on your bucket list? If the answer is yes, Putha Hiunchuli Climbing Course is made just for you.

The 95th tallest peak in the world, Putha Hiunchuli soars up to 7246 m above sea level. Putha Hiunchuli, otherwise called Dhaulagiri VII, is the Western most peak of Dhaulagiri Range. The expedition is considered to be quite easy for a seven thousand, however, a former experience of mountain climbing is very important. Though the Northern route is the most followed route for the summit, ascend can also make through the Southern side. The best climbing seasons are April to May and September to October, when there are least snowfall or avalanche risks.

During the journey, we can immerse our tired feet in cold waters of Musi Khola and Bharbun Khola, the tributaries of Thuli Bheri River. While walking through the semi-arid and harsh Dolpo valley, we will certainly be beguiled by the elegance of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Manaslu, and many other mountains. The Dolpo valley is predominantly inhabited by the Tibetans and Sherpa, giving us a taste of their unique culture and lifestyle.

The Putha Hiunchuli Climbing Course is a post advanced climbing course, where you can learn about summiting higher mountains, crevasse rescue, ice axe techniques, ice anchoring, and many other mountaineering skills. This amazing expedition and climbing training will make you prepared for summiting mountains above eight thousand meters.  In a span of 21 days, you will not only travel and learn, you will also add another badge of endurance and courage.
