Sounds almost too good to be true. Join our expedition to a secluded, safe and fantastic seven-thousander in a little-known region of Nepal? A sure thing!
This expedition is the perfect step into high altitude mountaineering, a perfect preparation for the first eith-thausender and or for experienced skiers and snowboarders!
It’s a really rewarding 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 angled 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. Therefore, this mountain is also highly recommended for every ambitious ski tourer. Everything about the overall experience is just right.
