The three Fanged Peak raises colossally in the mighty range of Dhauladhar, remarked as a highest peak of the range perches in the North Himalayan vales of Manali. The peak is saffron colored and is named Hanuman Tibba, suggesting that it has been derived from Hindu mythological Monkey God. It is one of the sacred mountains located in India, as per the spiritual relativity all climbs are done after proper ceremonial offerings. The hanuman tibba peak is a technical peak with unpredicted challenges that beginners are not proficient of doing it, only the mountaineers who have done prior climbing expeditions will be able to endure the whole climbing course. The Hanuman Tibba climbing comprises with an assertive approach of exertion surmounted by immaculate strength and endurance.
The great peak erects massively as one passes through Kothi, Gulaba road leading to Rohtang Pass. It will be a great introduction for someone to see peaks enormity. But our route will be on different road leading into the Solang Valley where we will be having partial view of the Peak until we reach the Raoli Thach. The actual route starts from the last road head at Dhundi, from where we will trail obliquely through beautiful meadows diverse vegetation across multiple ridges until Raoli Thach and then to Lady Leg. Further from here we will set our ABC at tentu Base by ferrying necessary load. It is requisite to perform such ferries that it will help acclimatize the individual faster. Above from the ABC our challenge commences through a passage surrounded with massive rocky mountains, which gets narrowed as we climb higher to the tentu pass. This is the trickiest part of the expedition that there is high risk of falling rocks, avalanches throughout the climb. After the Tentu Pass an ice field is followed by endless moraines area requiring all day to overcome. The approach toward Pyramid Peak is precipitous and requires a circumambulation of the peak after Tentu pass. This reclusive land of moraines triggers a strange feeling inside that is often derived from the harsh and isolated landscape of hope and despair. The circling of the mighty peak ends at the summit base perched on a massive glacier field surrounded by stunning mountain ranges. At the summit camp one can see the peak still elongating colossally, requiring a precise summit approach by tracing the best possible route. The peak is climbed on steep icy gradients reclining all the way till summit. The climb demands sheer endurance to attain the top resulting into a magnificent grandeur of the Hanuman Tibba. The pinnacle presents stunning panorama of gigantic mountain ranges glimpsed consecutively in an outlay. We will hoist the National Flag perform a short ceremony of gratitude to the mother nature for its sustenance throughout and retrieve back to the summit camp with secure descend. It will be a glorifying moment of self gratification over conquering astounding Peak.
As you have marched over Hanuman Tibba glacier, you would come to know that this prominent ice filed is shrinking. The impact of global warming can be seen on this massive glacier field, declining its vastness by emerge of debris graved underneath and tiny crakes turned into huge crevasses. The glacier is reducing its immense grandeur each year which is an alarming situation for the people living below. Because as these ice fields reduce its form due to melting it will give birth to water scarcities, natural unbalance. Although these ice fields are the main reservoirs of water and play a vital role in eco system of the region. This dramatic change of weather keeps affecting each year the valley with unpredicted showers floods and other natural calamities. Apart from it we can at least keep clean the fragile environment by collecting all the litter whether it is left by other teams earlier, we will bring it back to the city for a proper disposal and encourage all the climbers to do so as passing through any mountainous region.
Hence it is the climbing experience presenting one with the challenges never dealt before atmosphere never experienced before, combating with oneself against all the adversities and ultimately the joy of surmount. The climbing brings out the best in the people realizing and relieving one with reverberations of true lively struggle and mountain does so indeed.
Day 1: Reporting Naggar. (1800m.)
Arrive Naggar and accommodate yourself at the Hotel. Orientation & Briefing of the trek will be given once you have occupied. Sufficient time would be given for visiting market and nearby places. Stay a night in hotel rooms.
Day 2: Naggar - Manali - Raoli Thach. (3000m/9840ft.)
First we will drive towards Solang valley and then to Dhundi. Our trek starts from Dhundi to Bakkar Thach through picturesque backwoods of Manali. Here at Dhundi Beas river confluences with its tributary and flows feeding all along the valley below. The trail is moderate with just few upwards followed with striking sights of diverse vegetation. We will follow the trail obliquely on the right side of the river and keep following the trail until we are obstructed by a stream. We will cross the river and here we are at the campsite just above the stream. It is a beautiful camping site surrounded with massive mountain ranges, ideal site to start an expedition. We will fix our camps and rest for the night in tents.
Day 3: Raoli Thach – Lady Leg – Load Ferry to ABC – Lady Leg. (3600m/11810ft)
Today we will climb towards Lady Leg, a base for several peak expeditions. It is just above the Raoli Thach achieved through a winding trail. Once reached at Lady Leg we will rest for sometime then segregate all the equipment, then we will pack our load and head towards ABC ferrying load. We will drop some of our necessary things at the ABC and return back by the evening to the campsite at Lady Leg. Once reached have cup of tea and relax. Have your dinner and sleep inside tents.
DAY 4: Lady Leg – ABC Tentu Base (4000m/13120ft.)
Wake up early pack all the equipment and leave after having a healthy food. We will trek towards ABC and will occupy it today. In the afternoon we will do some technical reminders at the icy slope nearby the campsite. We will observe the passage for a safe route and timing. Return back to the campsite by the evening prepare your gear as we will need it further on. It is comfortable site at ABC with less winds and cold. One more advantage of pitching the campsite at Tentu Base is that it is just below the Tentu Gully, shortening the distance of approachability. The ABC is covered with miniature plant life with some resilient flower species ornamenting the landscape with varied color. Sleep the night peacefully as the upcoming days are full of challenges.
DAY 5: Tentu Base – Tentu Pass - Camp I (4800m/ 15750ft.)
Start your day as early as possible because the passage ahead is dangerous when sun warms up, loosening rocks to slide. We will start early around 5am taking all requisite gear and food stuff. Some of the ration will be dropped at this campsite in case of any weather changes or in case of ailments. It’s a hard climb though the slope leans steeply as we climb higher. We have to be careful and aware of every member’s movement, because sometimes these rocks or stones are triggered by sloppy mistakes that could result fatally. Never the less we will climb prudently and reach the top. At the last section of the pass brings all the adversities at one place with ice and rocky slants however climbed with the help of rope but is exhausting after an arduous climb. Once climbed the pass it is a moderate trek till the campsite near to a glacial lake. Here one can have the first scenes of the massive peak. It is a barren landscape surrounded by fierce mountains and its debris. We will halt a night at this arid natured campsite for the night.
Day 06: Camp I – Summit Camp (5000m/ 16400ft)
It’s the day of striding over distant moraine slants covering more than half distance of the route. It is a distressing job today to negotiate tectonic protrusions held colossally. The topography further from the Tentu Pass is filled with despondencies yet strengthening one to go after hope and despair. It will take all day long to cover the challenging distance consisting of subsequent ups and downs on boulders stones and ice. The treading is done obliquely on loose slants of debris frequently showing up large crevasses multiple ridges of glacier covered with stones and boulders. We will keep the right side of the mountain following the ridge until the grand Hanuman Tibba glacier emerges. Once you get encountered with the glacier ridge one might get delusion of distances an obvious reaction of presuming expansions. The ice fields seems like it is finished then eventually showing up more moderate gradients. Our tents will be pitched just below the Hanuman Tibba, from where we can estimate the best route for the summit. It is cold and windy yet unanticipated hues of high altitude fascinates tranquilly. We will eat well and sleep before dark to wake up early in the middle of the night. Prepare your gears before going to sleep.
Day 07: Summit Attempt (5930m/19450ft.)
The time has come to accomplish the task vigorously with all adequate manners. Our climb will start in the middle of the night by checking weather conditions. If the window gets open we will hit the moment and head for the target prudently. It is an overwhelming climb demanding all the strength and patience from someone try n scale the peak. Our aim will be to reach the summit by the morning because when we return it shouldn’t be latter than noon. It is because we want to avoid any contingencies held often while descending. Our instructors will lead and escort you till the top taking all essential measures. Ropes will be fixed for a safe climb wherever required. After hours of climbing steep slants we will somehow reach the summit. While climbing to the summit one will see the saffron rock formations lying just in front. We will climb up safely by roping up to the top, once achieved the summit have a look around, over the far flung mountainous valleys. It will be a great achievement attaining the top of highest peak in Dhauladhar Range at 5930m. Then descend carefully to the summit camp. We will either stay at summit camp or leave it accordingly to time taken. Whatever the decision we will spend a night in the tents.
Day 08: Reserve day for Summit
The day is reserved for any kind of weather change, delay or any other opposite situations.
Day 09: Summit Camp – Camp I
Start an early push towards camp I through same route over moraines. It would be an uneasy treading after the tremendous effort of climbing a peak. It is a long distance to be covered through uncertain terrains. We will reach the camp I by the evening. We will have some hot soup and dinner, then lay down to rest.
Day 10: Camp I - Tentu Base
Today it’s a short hike to the top of Tentu Pass which further goes downhill till the ABC. Once reached at the top of Pass rope up yourself and start descending cautiously. We will cross the small gully and then enter into the larger one expanding below to the base. It will take hours to complete the sheer downhill passage. Once approached at Tentu Base one can relax with ease in the warmer temperature on the green grass. Get occupied in your tents and sleep well.
Day 11: Tentu Base – Lady Leg
Today it’s time to climb the final ascend towards Lady Leg. Initially the route is goes downwards and flattens till the Beas Kund Lake. We will go across the lake towards a steep winding rise of slope leading to tiny Pass. It is a short climb but presents overwhelming demands. It will take more than an hour to complete the patch, finally concluded with a smile. After we climb across the tiny pass we can see the campsite clearly. We will approach Lady Leg and halt for the night.

Preparing for the Peak Climb:
As you know every mountainous excursion demands a precise planning, a planning with adequate pliability of observing and tackling situations, held all as by overcoming mind body and soul throughout the incredible Himalayan journey. Expeditions are tricky sometimes way far from coinciding, so it is necessary that only people with prior trekking experiences above 4500mtrs completed for 4-5 times or should have done Basic Mountaineering course are invited to join in the incredible mountainous tour.
So here are some aspects regarding Expedition preparation:
Physically – An Expedition demands a lot of physical endurance, to prepare for each Expedition you should work out a month before joining a program. Build up the adequate strength in your legs by running and exercising every day to boost up your endurance. Stop smoking and boost your lungs doing breathing exercises at routine basis two times a day, which will help acclimatize the conditions while being resilient on the trek. Take active part in outdoor games, Yoga and any other cardiac exercises. There are times when you have to climb even for 20hrs in single attempt, that’s how you should be prepared pushing yourself beyond limits and it only can be achieved by defined training before and enroute.
Mentally – Mental preparation is key, equally as important as physical training requisite for an Expedition. Before joining any Expedition get pleasure from your daily routines, exercise, eat well, take rest properly and relax. Do not stress your mind by unnecessary predictions preplanned strategies about the Expedition. Be with your best friends to get motivated and relax your mind. Because pre expedition assumptions are not worth to worry, once you join the March and meet with rest of the pack will bring encouragement and excitement. The mental preparedness will build through the entire trip conditions and the physical drawbacks will affect the mind somehow. So pay close attention to various parts of the body and consciously let them loosen up as you climb each campsite. When you climb try to relax your body focus on the training you have done and focus on the trail or some precipitous route to negotiate carefully. Experiment with different ways of walking as a way of finding enjoyment beyond the goal of reaching a destination. The main key to stay mentally fit is to enjoy the route and not to pressurize the mind.
Technically- Gear up yourself with perfect size trekking/climbing shoes and walk with it. Use 60ltr. Backpack in a daily routine with as much weight as you can put inside it, so you will become used to carrying loads for long distances. Buy a Trekking Pole, Water Bottle, Warm socks, Thermals, Fleece, Feather Jackets, Cap, Trousers, Poncho, Flip Flops, electronics such as power bank, camera (DSLR or digital camera) along with you. Get a sling to practice the major knots used later on the climb.
Climbing a peak is always as staggering as its sheer challenges, opting combination of accurate preparedness will fruit you with glorifying summit attain. So prepare yourselves honestly and join in the Himalayan Adventure Trips Expedition to Mighty Mount Hanuman Tibba.
