Gyajikang Expedition (7,038m)

gyaji-kang-expeditionMt. Gyajikang lies in Peri Himal north east of Manang and is opened only after 2002 for climbing. This expedition takes you through remote Tibetan setting villages Bhotia people of Nar and Phu, near to Nepal & Tibet boarder in the most north of Manang. In the approach to the base camp, we have to follow the popular Annapurna circuit trekking from Beshisahar to Koto and then proceed to Nar & Phu. Besides the climbing teams with prime objective of research, very few teams have climbed this peak. Beside above there is a possibility to fly into Hongde airport either from Kathmandu by charter flight or from Pokhara. It is about 300 inhabitants who depend on livestock, unlike most Bhotia people, whose trading patterns changed drastically after the Nepali Government closed borders with Tibet, the people of Nar and Phu valley were least affected by this change. The tortuous path leading from the valley into Tibet had never made them dependent on the salt trade, and till today yak herding is the basis of their livelihood and so on. Government of Nepal to open up Nar and Phu to tourists has evoked little enthusiasm among the villagers, whose pastoral lifestyle continues. Apart from the odd researcher and climbing expeditions permitted to climb Mt. Gyajing Kang, Himlung, Ratna Chuli and Mt. Kang Guru.
