Western Side of Nepal

Western Himalayas of Nepal is a treasure trove. It extends from Upper Dolpa in east to Byas Himal in the west. The area is rich in natural attractions like tens of unclimbed peaks, hundreds of uncharted trails, pristine lakes, murmuring brooks, fast flowing rivers, which offers plethora of adventure options for visitors. The area is geographically diverse. It is home to numerous high passes, alpine grasslands, rocky terrains, terraced fields and sparsely-populated villages.
The area is home to mountain peaks like Api, Nampa, Saipal, Kanjirowa, Jethi Bahurani, Putha Himal. Most of them are unclimbed. Api, standing 7,132 meters tall, is the tallest mountain in the area. Many people do not have much information about these peaks as only a handful of foreigners go to these places due to lack of infrastructure and promotion. It is because of this fact that most of these beautiful mountains remain unclimbed even today.

Putha Himchuli Climbing

Putha Himchuli (7246m), or Dhaulagiri VII, is the westernmost peak in the Dhaulagiri range in western Nepal. The peak straddles the border of East Rukum and Dolpa districts. Though the peak is graded as Peu Difficile, or moderately difficult, it requires technical skills and great stamina to climb this peak. It is one of the popular peaks in western Nepal among mountaineers as it is used by many to gain technical experience before attempting an 8,000-meter peak. Though the peak can be climbed via southern face, many prefer to climb the northern face i.e. via Dolpa. The caravan route to the southern face begins from Dhorpatan, while the route for the northern face is via either Dunai (Dolpa) or Jomsom (Mustang). The peak was first climbed by Col Jimmy Roberts and Ang Nyima Sherpa in 1954 while they were on their mission to explore the Dhaulagiri massif.
