Mount Gyajikhang Expedition

Mount Gyajikhang Expedition

Gyajikhang is a lesser known 7000 meter peak in northeastern Manang district. Only opened to climbers in 2002, this mountain sees very little traffic and new routes to the summit are still being explored. The remote Nar Phu valley, to the north of the Annapurna Himal is accessed by following the beginning section of the Annapurna Circuit trail along the Marshyangdi river. The valley is home to a unique culture of Tibetan ancestors and pristine landscapes. Be one of the few who have explored this region and attempt the summit of a largely untouched Himalayan peak.
