  • Ghepan Peak is an unknown summit located in Lahul valley, in the Kingdom of King Ghepan. Ghepan peak is named after King Ghepan, the most revered deity of the region. The Jewel of Lahul stands like an emperor above the Sissu village and is amongst less climbed peaks of the Lahul valley. The peak was discovered by author of the Himalayan Journal Harish Kapadia but he was mistaken by its twin rising aside the Ghepan Peak. Over the years Ghepan Peak was figured as a wrong Peak but later this mistake was resolved by configuring the actual Peak standing along to it. Both the peaks look similar and one could get deceived. Nevertheless Ghepan peak is open to be climbed yet it holds very few history of climbing. The peak consists of a huge rock face and steep ridgeline leading to a knife edge summit.
  • The expedition starts from Sissu village which is situated alongside the Manali Leh highway. From Sissu village a detour to Labrang Monastery and trail leads along the stream originating itself from the Ghepan Goh Lake. The trail is well marked and provides one easy trekking. However the easiest way is to follow the ridge that starts from the end point of Monastery. The trail meanders along the stream and is moderate until we reach the base. En route one will see shepherds from various districts gathered to feed their livestock and some of their hut lets on such summer grazing slopes. The transit camp is fixed on a massive pasture ground ideal to leisure around. Further from the grassland we will reach Ghepan Lake, a serene lake amidst snow laden peaks. We will tread a bit further and establish our base camp at about 4100m. The tough part starts after the base ferrying loads to the higher camps and establishing it. The route goes over scree and moraine slopes to the Camp I at around 4800m. At camp I proper planning and route is observed for the summit camp. The summit camp will be fixed as near as the summit to avoid any chance of failure. Although the peak consists of rock and ice gradients it will be a sheer task to attain the summit. It is a difficult peak climbing over vertical rock walls dangerous ridges and a narrow summit. In the mean time we will establish our summit camp at around 5350m. We will wait for the weather to turn favorable and hit the target. The final ascent on this great peak is tiring yet the reward of being at the top of it relieves all fatigue. The top of Ghepan peak is narrow and drops dangerously each side. It is advised to be anchored at the summit as the fierce winds would blow one down. At the summit one can see its twin unnamed peak and many other unknown Himalayan peaks soaring above the clouds. We will spend some time at 5870m Ghepan Peak and descend back to the base camp. Here we will wind up the load and will reach the road head. Here we will celebrate and next day depart to preferred programs.
  • The climbing history of Ghepan Peak is least and very few mountaineers had attempted it. One team from ABHIMAS Manali claims to summated the peak but besides it there is no such information of successful summit. So it must be an enthralling route which is less frequented and could be explored more by attempting it. Therefore we offer you the best possible expedition team and facility to conquer the forgotten peak.

Preparation of Ghepan Peak

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 Ghepan Peak 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).
