Gangapurna Peak Expedition
Gangapurna Peak Expedition
Located at the northeast of Annapurna, Gangapurna Expedition Peak (7,455m) soars to the end of Grand Barrier to Tilicho Peak on the shoulder at 10km from Annapurna directly east of Roc Noir. Gangapurna Peak expedition was first made by a team of German expedition led by Gunther Hauser, via the Eastern Ridge in 1965. It is the most accessible and elegant route yet technically challenging climbing line. Climbing Gangapurna Peak is considered as difficult and challenging with lots of snows, ridges and technical section. It is a perfect opportunity for adventure seeker to savor ultimate climbing experience at fascinating Mt. Gangapurna for life time achievement.
The standard access to Gangapurna peak is through BesiSahar crossing Marsyangdi valley that takes more than weeklong trek and allows excellent acclimatization. After summiting the peak, climbers can fly out from Humde- few hours of descend from the Base Camp or from Jomsom – 3 days great hiking experience crossing Thorong La Pass (5,416m).
Gangapurna Peak Climbing is straightforward but concerns some steep and challenging section with low objecting risk. Gangapurna summit features the best view of Annapurna massif, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak and end-less Tibetan Plateau to the north of the peak.
