This climb will take you through stunning Trans-Himalayan landscapes, crossing over great Himalayan meadows, quaint villages and hamlets and will lead to off the beaten track destinations. We will be seeing great Himalayan mountain ranges such as Dhauladhar & Pir Panjal range, wildlife and nature, and we will experience local Hindu and Buddhist culture and food. There will be plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife and take pictures. Our route will take you through: Manali – Dhundhi – Bakartach- Tenthu Pass- Hanumaan Tibba – Manali
MT. HANUMAN TIBBA EXPEDITION
The technical difficult Hanuman Tibba is the highest mountain in the Dhauladar Range. The peak name comes out from “Hanuman” he is a king of monkey and also the hero in ‘Ramayan’. The Tentu Pass is the mixture of snow, ice and rock with the gradient up to 75° to 80°, which makes the climb difficult and exhaustive. After Tentu Pass a traverse to the mountain leads us from North – West ridge to South – East ridge. During this traverse climber has to face lots of crevasses in the glacier. At the end of traverse just before the South – East ridge we will set up our summit camp.
Day 01: Manali After an early breakfast, we will drive 7 kms to Dundi(2490m), where we commence our trek. Up to Dhundi, as vehicles are not allowed beyond Solang. We’ll then start walking up the Bakar tach, flanked on both sides by 5000m+ mountains peaks. Hanuman Tibba (5982m). Dinner and overnight in tents.
Day 02: Bakar Tach to Beas Kund (3600m) After breakfast, we’ll continue on our way up the Beas Kund . The trail rises gradually up to the camping ground at Bhakarthach – the permanent camping site of the local mountaineering institute. A short but steep climb takes you to a 300m long moraine field that culminates in the meadows of the Beas Kund region. A vast flatland, strewn with small boulders and streams, crowned by huge mountain faces and hanging glaciers, the topography of the region is in stark contrast to the prior days. Our campsite will be situated several meters away from Beas Kund, at the base of Tentu Pass. Overnight stay in camp.
Day 03: Base Camp to Advanced Camp (4000m) below Tentu pass Early this morning we take our first steps up the mountain. Almost immediately we will be walking up a steep slope of hardened snow. We’ll arrive at camp, which is half way up the mountain side in time to have our packed lunch. Now that we are on the mountain, we’ll be without our kitchen staff. From here on, all the members of the expedition (guests, high-altitude porters (HAP), guide, etc.) will work together to carry loads, pitch and remove camp, cook and wash. From tonight onwards, we’ll be camping on snow for the next few days. Overnight stay in camp.
Day 04: Advanced Camp to Camp 1 (4800m) over Tentu pass This will probably be the most challenging day of the entire expedition. The climb to the top of Tentu Pass today is steep, long and arduous. Depending on the snow conditions, your guides will set up fixed ropes for you. Once we come to the pass, we’ll have a fantastic view of ‘the other side’ for the first time. From the ridge, it’s a short gradual descent to our camp site. Overnight stay in camp.
Day 05: Camp 1 to Summit Camp (5000m) We have a relatively flat walk ahead of us today; our height gain will be barely 200m. But the hike today is quite long, almost 7 hours, constantly over a glacier, circumnavigating some crevasses. After arriving at camp, we’ll quickly have a very early dinner and crawl into our tents. Later this night, we’ll be making our summit attempt.
