  • Karcha Parbat is located in remote Lahaul and Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh. It lies deep in the backdrops of Baatal, a catering on the Manali Kaza highway.  Karcha Parbat is a technical peak consisting dangerous scree slants boulders snow ice torrential rivers and the rough summit attempts. The peak rises from the clearly defined ridge rising from Kunzum Pass in an easterly direction and then southwest to the Gyundi Nala. Although summit ridge rises from a moderate gradient to the 70 degree drop on rocky rib to the last icy surfaces on knife edge acme.
  • The route treads along the Karcha Nala, a tributary of Chandra river confluences after a 20 minute walk from  Baatal. We will take right side of the river to avoid the torrential flow later in the evenings. The route initially presents the steep ascending over scree slopes on the right side of the Karcha Nala. Continue treading on steep scree slants and reach at the riverbed, where ice bridge will assist crossing the torrential  river. After hours of treading we will reach at GreluThach, a transit camp before reaching the base camp. Following day hike over heaps of moraine loose boulders and establish base camp on a flat land at an altitude of 4450m.Then establish ABC at 4900m and subsequently camp I at the altitude of 5330m. Transfer sufficient load and gear to the camp II through heaps of boulder over the southwest ridge of Karcha Parbat. As the camp II has been established prepare for the summit attempt while observing the weather conditions.
  • Summit attempt will rely on weather window allowing a safe attempt to conquer the Karcha Parbat. At first route is traversed over rocks, loose boulders and then reaches on the top of main ridge. Ahead few snow patches needed to be negotiated cautiously which will be accompanied again by rocks and boulders. The gradient is moderate on the last stretch of the attempt assisting the climb progress much faster than any other summit attempt. Crossing the last snow patch and a huge boulder will reach us as near as 50m to the summit. Simultaneously summit will be achieved after hours of hard climb. The summit of Karcha Parbat is 3m long and 1m wide, making it a dangerous point for congestion. So it will be safe to summit the acme without any hustle avoiding any mishaps. Spend some quality time at the altitude of 6271m. and descend back to the lower camps cautiously.
  • Finally the peak has been a forgotten summit amongst arverd mountaineers since the few successful summit attempts. Karcha Parbat has been a perfect introductory into the adventurous climbing world and we believe it will gain similar attention as it has attracted the mountaineers over the years across the world. We anticipate that Karcha Parbat will be an alternate of climbing stupendous peaks located in harsh and arid landscapes of Lahaul and Spiti ideal for perfect climbing experience.

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 KARCHA PARBAT 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).
