Mt. Gangapurna is a breathtaking mountain that is located in the Manang district of Nepal and is between Annapurna III and Tilicho Peak. Mt. Gangapurna rises to the northeast of Annapurna. This expedition is considered very difficult and challenging with lots of snow and has several technical sections. Mount Gangapurna is at an altitude of 7,477 meters. Gangapurna Expedition is considered as a perfect opportunity for adventure-seeking climbers. This is an ultimate climbing experience for the climbers and also is a lifetime experience. The German Expedition team was the first to summit Gangapurna mountain in 1965. They took the route via the East Ridge and the leader of the expedition was Günther Hauser. Mountain Gangapurna is one of the best mountains to climb in Nepal and is a perfect preparation and experience for future 8000-meter expeditions.
Gangapurna rises above the Manang Valley with extraordinary views across to Annapurna II, III and IV, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak, Glacier Dome, and Manaslu. The climb is technically easy and straightforward but the climbers must be very fit and also must be familiar using crampons, harness, ice ax, and handling climbing ropes and tying knots. After we reach the summit, we go along the Manang valley and gradually ascend to the top of the Throng Pass which is at an altitude of 5416 meters. Then we slowly descend to the shrine of Muktinath after the crossing. The last part of our journey takes us to Jomsom from where take a flight across the magnificent Himalayas to Pokhara. This expedition will be worth the time and effort you have put on. It offers you the magnificent views of the Himalayas which includes Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains. You also can experience a different culture of the village tribe.
