As a prelude to the ski touring season or as it`s culmination, why not join our expedition to a secluded, fantastic seven-thousander in a little-known region of Nepal? A sure thing!
Of course, mountaineers without skis and snowboarders can join our expedition as well!
It’s a really rewarding ski mountain in a beautiful region of Nepal, the perfect alternative to the overcrowded Muztagh Ata and also an ideal preparation for the first eight-thousander expedition! The Putha Hiunchuli (also Dhaulagiri VII) is no longer an insider tip, after all, it was first climbed in 1954, yet it is still very quiet on this beautiful, technically simple seven-thousander in remote Dolpo in northwestern Nepal. Its existence as a mountain for skiing, however, is an absolute insider tip!
Alone the journey to this mountain through the fascinating, Tibetan influenced region, which has only been fully accessible since 1992, is a highlight. And its northwestern flank consists of ideally inclined ski slopes with very few crevasses. Actually, this part of the Himalayas is rather dry. Following the snowfall brought on by the summer monsoons, perfect snow conditions are very common in autumn. But also the spring season has seen succesful ski descents in the last years. Therefore, this mountain is highly recommended for every ambitious ski tourer. Everything about the overall experience is just right.
