Saife Peak & Sudarshan Parbet Expedition

Altitude 6167m and 6507m, Grade: 3C

This is a combo expedition set in a spectacular setting above the source of the Ganges in the Garhwal region of Northern India. The region is called a mountaineering paradise and benefits from a short approach trek making it possible to attempt two stunning 6000m peaks in just three weeks.

Description

Our main objective is Sudarshan but we anticipate being able to climb the stunning ridge of Saife Peak during our approach and acclimatisation phase of the expedition. The views from both Peaks are spectacular and will leave an indelible impression in your memory. Few groups have discovered these peaks take advantage now!

Saife is a lovely conical shaped snow covered peak in the heart of the Indian Himalaya away from the crowds of Nepal. Technically it is straightforward a bit like Mera Peak with the summit giving spectacular views of all the famous peaks of the Gangotri Glacier including Shivling (one of the most beautiful peaks in the world) and the famous rock spires of the Bhagirathi Towers. Sudarshan is steeper and will require short sections of fixed line work for which training will be given. Sudarshan is a spectacular looking peak that dominates the true right hand skyline of the approach walk that takes you up to the source of the Ganges. This is a fully supported climb where high altitude porters (HAPs) are used to establish three camps (ABC 4880m, C1 5550m, C2 5975) to aid our ascent of this wonderful snow and ice peak. The majestic views of Shivling –the Matterhorn of the Himalayas is always present and it is surrounded by some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the world. Sudarshan Peak is a good stepping-stone to a 7000 or 8000m Peak
