Day 8 - 10: Acclimatisation

It's over 1,600m height gain from Kakkot to base camp, with only one place to camp in-between, so you need to spend a few days acclimatising. From Kakkot you'll aim to walk up to 4,000m en route to Pangi Camp, before returning to Kakkot.

Day 11 - 12: Trek to Pangi Camp (4,480m)

You'll aim to have two nights in Pangi Camp. 

Day 13: Move to Putha Hiunchuli Base Camp (4,950m)

Day 14 - 25: Climb Putha Hiunchuli (7,246m) and skiing

You will use three camps above base camp; at 5,450m, 6,150m and 6,500m. You should have enough time to get acclimatized, skiing and make a summit bid in a decent weather window. Fixed ropes will be placed on some of the steeper sections of the route between Camp 1 and Camp 2, but much of the climbing will be done moving together as roped teams. Nowhere is the ground particularly steep, but after fresh snow this could make the going extremely tough. Temperatures on summit day could be as low as -40 degrees celcius.

Day 26 - 29: Return trek to Julphal
