Gangapurna Expedition



Ganggapurna (7455m) is located east-northeast of Annapurna at the opposite end of Grand Barrier to Tilicho Peak on the shoulder extending 10km from Annapurna directly east of Roc Noir. Ganggapurna was first climbed in 1965 by a German expedition led by Günther Hauser, via the East Ridge, which is the most accessible, most obvious and most elegant but challenging climbing line.
A standard access to the Base Camp (4650m) is through Besi Sahar via Marsyangdi valley within 10 day trek and affording an excellent acclimatization. After the climb one can fly-out from Humde, only few hours of hiking down from the Base Camp or from Jomsom with 3 days spectacular hike via Thorong La pass (5416m).
This awesome climb is straightforward but somewhat challenging ridge climb with low objective danger. The view from Ganggapurna summit is breathtaking on Annapurna massif, Dhaulagiri, Tibetan plateu and Tilicho Peak on the other end of the Grand Barrier.
