  • Ibi Gamin or Abi Gamin is the second highest peak in Garwal Himalayas and is amongst the 15 seven thousand meter peaks of Uttrakhand.  The peak lies in the North Border where Indian boundary meets Tibet, the range where Zanskar range ends and the Chamoli district starts. The peak shares the same route as taken for the Mt. Kamet located 2km far from Abi Gamin Peak, which is separated by the Mead’s Col. The summit attempts share the same summit base following the profound routes. The peak was attempted many a times but wasn’t summated until the year of 1953 from the southwest ridge of Mead’s Col.  Therefore several attempts were made and few efficient routes were being discovered. There are few routes advancing from Mana pass on the north side of Tibet, Southwest ridge of Mead’s Col and from the Northwest ridge. Amongst all three routes Mead’s Col is considered the best route to attack the summit.
  • The expedition starts from Joshimath, Markari, Niti, Sapukharak, Nandkharak, Base camp and so on to the multiple camps till summit. Reaching base camp is an exhausting trek through steep trails vast moraine field’s snow and ice patches. En route ABC multiple glacial lakes could be seen located aside the debree gathered over the years of expansion. At ABC adequate acclimatization is done and further load ferries are being performed. Ferrying load on such an adventurous expedition is required for many aspects ultimately helping out to summit the mighty peak. Thus the shifting load will continue until the summit camp is established. Route from camp I to camp II goes along with the east Kamet glacier. The route from camp III to camp IV is extremely tough consisting of steep rocky face with thin snow covering the icy surface. The stretch requires thousands of meter ropes needed to be fixed and days of tiring efforts for safer climb. Steep route with snow ice huge boulders is the gradient to examine ones strength and endurance. Then the Mead’s Col which is pure definition of adversity is always ready to testify the sheer endurance and strength to reach as near to the summit. Above Mead’s Col our summit camp will be set and we will wait for the perfect window to acclaim the summit. Further the route isn’t that much technical but the steepness which keeps sharpening endlessly and the thin air making the approach delusive. Apart from it steep slopes of snow and the devastating altitude rise may hamper one seriously but the grandeur of the vistas are fulfilling to relive one instantly. After strenuous attempt the summit will be achieved flawlessly by greeting Gods for the safe ascend and descend. Atop at 7355m worship the concerning local God pray and take photographs around and descend carefully to the lower camps. Descending down is the most dangerous jobs of mountaineering when person gets exhausted during precipitous inclines intermittent rests may help out recovering and reaching the safer zone. Summiting such kinds of deadliest summits brings humans close to the nature, realizing the true nature of it. The key thing to attain mountain top is to respect its sheer powers. On the contrary one can climb the peak and has to descend down but mountains will be still there showing its fearsome powers remaining same each time yet attempts may not be successful as planned and vary the experience in particular.

Preparation for ABI Gamin Expedition

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.

So here are some aspects regarding ABI Gamin Expedition preparation:

Physically – A trek demands physical endurance, to prepare for each trek 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.

Mentally – Mental preparation is key, equally as important as physical training requisite for a trek. Before joining any trek take pleasure in your daily routines, eat well, take rest properly and relax. Do not stress your mind by unnecessary predictions about the trek. Be with your best friends to get motivated and relax your mind. Because pre trek assumptions are not worthy because once you join the trek and meet with rest of the pack will bring encouragement and excitement. The mental preparedness will build through the entire trek conditions. And the physical drawbacks will affect the mind. So pay close attention to various parts of the body and consciously let them loosen up as you trek. When you trek try to relax your body, especially your hips. If you’re on a winding downhill trail or on a panicking slant, think of each step as part of a simple dance and enjoy the natural rhythms that the terrain and your body can find together cautiously. 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 shoes and walk with it. Use 60ltr. Backpack in a daily routine with some weight inside it, so you become used to carrying loads. Buy a trekking pole, water bottle, warm socks, thermals, fleece, feather jackets, trousers, poncho,  flip flops, electronics such as power bank, camera (DSLR or digital camera).
