Overview

Wild Yak Expeditions is introducing the Skiing Mountain in the Himalayas popularly known as Putha Himchuli. Putha Himchuli is located far west of Nepal’s trans Himalaya in the wild, mysterious and considered as one of the most magical region called Dolpo. This region lies among the high peaks, on the roof top of the world, boasting extra-ordinary biodiversity and cultures with its environmentally sensitive and fragile region. Trekking here is very different from other parts in Nepal: oasis-like villages, and raven landscape, scarred with deep canyons and all beneath velvet blue skies. It also offers to discover the rich ecological diversity of the different vegetation and the colourful monastic artistic treasures and traditions of the various ethnical local groups of the Dolpopa, and Lopa people.

Putha Himchuli, also known as Dhaulagiri VII, was first summitted in 1954 by the British legendary explorer Jimmy Robert via the Northeast ridge during the survey expedition to the Dhaulagiri massif. WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS proposes the ascent via the normal Northeast ridge, which is technically not so challenging and sets 3 camps above the Base Camp. The conditions are usually great for high altitude skiing. Putha Himchuli is often compared with Muztagh Ata in China for the perfect slope and snow conditions for a skiing experience at 7000 meters
