We invite climbers to join a 20-day Exclusive Himalayan mountain climbing expedition to Shigri Parbat. We accept climbers of all ability levels from across the world. Beginning on July 23, every year.
Exclusive Himalayan mountain climbing expedition to Shigri Parbat – 6571 meters, is located in Bara Shigri (roughly, “Great Glacier”). It is the second-longest glacier in the Himalayas, stretching about 30 kilometers. H. Walker and E.H. Pascoe of the Geological Survey of India were the first to survey the glacier in 1906.
Shigri Parbat was first ascended on August 27, 1961, by a British climbing team. After that, only a few successful efforts were undertaken.
Organize your climbing equipment once you arrive. Examine your climbing equipment (climbing boots, crampons, and harnesses). After lunch, spend some time touring the town. Optional: You may visit the Hadimba temple, the Vashisht hot water springs, or the Roerich Art Gallery in Naggar while in Manali.
The Atal tunnel connects Manali and Chandratal Lake, which is 110 kilometers away. The travel time will remain between 6 and 8 hours. That’s correct. Even if you avoid crossing Rohtang Pass, it makes very little difference in terms of overall distance and time.
The road to Chandra Taal is in poor condition, all dusty and bumpy, but it is a road. The unpaved road from Batal to Chandra Taal Lake is 14 kilometers long and barely wide enough for a car.
Chandra Taal Lake is located on the Samudra Tapu (sea island) in Spiti Valley. Chandra Taal is one of Himachal’s half-moon lakes because it’s crescent-shaped. Chandra Taal, which means “Moon Lake,” is a popular trekking destination in Himachal Pradesh. Lake is located at a height of 4250 meters above sea level. The Chandra Taal is situated near the Chandra River’s headwaters.
The abandoned location that is chilly and dry is a lake or a snout camp- To reach this camp, one must cross the Karcha Nullah and a few smaller creeks. Meadows for herders are scarce. The vista from Snout Camp includes White Sail Peak and Lalna Peak. We’re still in sparse vegetation before reaching the Bara Shigri glacier.
The journey up the glacier’s lateral moraine is one of the most difficult you’ll ever face it’s abrupt. The trail begins very flat, passes streams, and eventually reaches the moraine-covered glacier. The path ascends and descends, with rockfall zones and unstable boulders in several places. Kullu Pumori Peak may also be seen from the Intermediate camp.
Following intermediate camp, you will hike over stone, sandy, and ice debris, crossing a big stream across the glacier. Concordia is a beautiful location where several glaciers meet. There are no large crevasses until you reach base camp, but you will see streams with fracture lines as you cross them.
Concordia provides a breathtaking vista of the several glaciers that meet here. Camp at 4933 meters in the midst of the glacier, away from avalanches and rock fall zone.
We will be Caching supplies, food, and equipment for further camps. Navigating glacier mixed ice and rock terrain with hidden and open crevasses. We gather supplies at Camp 1 and return to the base camp. This also aids in acclamation.
We finished the load ferry with ration caches and were fully acclimatized to the height the next day. We will relocate to Camp 1.
We will repeat the technique of day 8 but with additional elevation and soft snow and ice terrain. We will stock up on supplies in summit camp before returning to Camp 1.
We will shift from Camp 1 to the summit camp. Nice and easy.
Days are set aside to open the additional path and install ropes on difficult spots to make the summit ascent safe.
Days are reserved for the summit push from the summit camp to the Shigri Parbat peak at 6571 meters. Return to summit camp after ascending.
Return directly from Summit camp to Base camp.
Depending on the energy level of the squad, you may push directly to snout camp and rest the next day at a lower altitude. Alternatively, you might camp at an intermediate camp and travel less each day.
This rest day is determined by the previous day’s travel.
We take the same path we came here to get back to Batal.
Drive back to Manali. By the evening, you should be in Manali.
