Mt. Putha Expedition (Rukum side)

  • Duration:32 Day(s)
  • Destination:Nepal
  • Grade:Technical Challenging

On the north side of Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve, the Mt. Putha Expedition locates as its boundary. It’s name was been given with the language of Magar ethnic that Putha meaning mountain which indicates that the trek reflects directly tradition, norms and the whole culture of the Magars.

It’s one of the very beautiful mountains in the western part of Dhalagiri Range. Putha Himal resembles with the Churen Himal from distance; so are also indicated as twins. The famous settlement areas are the Maikot village of Rukum and Gurja Khani of Myagdi. At its surrounding are other beautiful mountains like Dogari, Samjang, Churen. On the base of the mountain, we have a zone of Yarsagumba where researches, students and the merchants come every year from the world.

We have developed a game trail until base camp from Rukum side (south face), explored by Western Nepal treks being leaded by Mr. Man Bd. Khatri, the founder of this company and a Mountain guide or an explorer. Till now, no one has climbed from this side where Mr. Man Bd. suggests that it could be done from the south face which make less expensive than that form the North face (Dolpo side). Although, the expedition duration from either faces is equal, the south face offers cheaper than from the north face because of no obligation of take flight.

Close to this expedition, in the region of Dogari, we also find crystals. Not only with excitement generating in this expedition, we are also covering the major parts of West Dhaulagiri Upper Trek. This expedition is also quite famous for other activities like skiing, popular from North face; not practiced from the south face (estimated difficult).

In the initial and the final days we could stay in the villagers’ house and for most of the time during our expedition period, we have to go on camping mode.
