Dhaulagiri Vii is one of the beautiful Mountains which is 7246 m high, situated at the western most peak of the Dhaulagiri range and is sometimes referred to as Mt. Putha Hiunchuli. It was first climbed in 1954 by Jimmy Roberts, a legendary explorer, and climber. This is a remote and seldom-visited area and an expedition to it is an adventure in the true sense of the word. The landscape during the approach walk is as enchanting as it is unique a mineral world made of high cliffs and deep canyons.
This expedition trip is difficult but not technically troublesome. It’s a really rewarding ski mountain in a beautiful region of Nepal. You will use three camps above base camp, with the highest at 6,500m which is technically easy but due to the long distance, you need to work hard. .The trails pass from the snowfall brought on by the summer monsoons, perfect snow conditions are very common in autumn. But also the spring season has seen successful ski descents in the last years. This could be a breathtaking moment for climbers. Therefore this mountains expedition trip is highly recommended by many adventure seekers. Our reputed company has experienced mountain guide which makes your journey memorable and joyful.
After our arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu, our representative/staff will pick us up from the airport and take us to our hotel. We can take rest and later visit the company office in Thamel, a popular tourist hub. However, there will be a welcome dinner in the evening where we get to experience excellent Nepalese cuisine.
After breakfast, we begin our tour of four amazing UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These
include the architecturally rich Durbar Square, the sacred Hindu temple of Pashupati
Nath, the interesting ‘Monkey Temple’ (Swayambunath) and Buddha Nath Stupa which
is one of the largest stupas in the world. After completing our tour late in the
afternoon, we drive to High Spirit office for a brief meeting about our trek and
get to know our team leader (guide) and fellow travelers.
We begin today’s trek very early in the morning to reach the highest part of the entire
trip which is Kongma La pass. We can either take a trail over a hill which is to the
northwest of Chhukung over the Nuptse Glacier moraines or we can walk back to Bibre
and trek on the trail above the Niyang Khola. The top of the pass is marked by cairns and
Buddhist prayer flags. The final descent from the pass is the most difficult part of today’s
journey. After climbing the moraine on the far side, the trail turns north through
Khumbu Glacier which takes us to Lobuche. Overnight at Lobuche.
As we gain height, the Cho La Lake begins to appear and the Ama Dablam presides over
a range of mountains on the south and Cholatse soars on the west. Climbing the incline
is not easy; it is steep, but made worse by boulders over some of which we will have to
scramble. The final climb to the Cho La can be a little tricky as the trail curves round a
crevasse. The top of the pass is marked by prayer flags and cairns. Scenery of majestic
peaks on all directions is breathtaking. Although long, the path leading down to
Thangnak is not difficult. Our trail brings us to the edge of the Ngozumpa glacier, which
is the longest glacier in Nepal. Reaching the other side of the glacier, we see the second
Gokyo Lake on the series of six lakes. A short distance away is the third Gokyo Lake. On
the edge of this lake stands the Gokyo Village where we spend the night.
