Tukuche Peak is a wonderful mountain just in front of Dhaulagiri I and the Annapurna
range near the Kali Gandaki George. It is located in the wild Mustang valley a fantastic
trekking destinationin the North of Nepal. This journey is a great combination of
challenging climbing and impressive trekking. Tukuche expedition is considered to be
less dangerous but highly technical. Summit of Tukuche peak offers stunnig mountain
vistas including entire Annapurna Range, Nilgiri and also the beautiful villages of
Marpha, Syang, and Jomsom. Although the ridge itself is not steep it is considered a
technical climb and with the elevation close to 7000m there is the need to acclimatize,
the elevation exposes climbers to cold and windy weather conditions. According to the
climbing difficulty scale Tukuche peak counts as a 7000m expedition and categories as
amoderate climb (PD++)this peak was first climbed by Hugh Merrick in 1969.
This 6000m peak has some of the best views that the Himalaya can offer. From the
