Kang-Guru Himal Expedition (6,981m)

Mt. kangguru-expeditionKang-Guru peak is located in Peri Himal between Annapurna ranges and Manaslu of Nar-Phu valley, above the tree line on the upper limit of cultivation in the north of Manang. Apart from the odd researcher and climbing expeditions permitted to climb Mt. Kang Guru, Mt. Himlung, Mt. Ratna Chuli and Mt. Gyajing Kang, few foreigners have visited the area and tourism infrastructure is almost non-existent. The climbing routes follow the Annpurna ciruit route up to Koto and proceed to Kang Guru base camp passing through traditional villages of Tibetan setting Meta. Base camp will be pitched at 4250m, camp I at 5300m, Camp II at 6100m and then long climbing on to the summit. The route presents some small technical difficulties and care should be taken for possible avalanches. From here a long and steep trail winds up to Nar and Phu whose villagers, laden with goods purchased in Chame and even lower down in Besishahar, the end of the road head leading to Manang, often camp at Dharmashala, a rudimentary wooden hut built by the people from the two villages. Mt. Kang Guru becomes a most popular and mountain for the climbers since 2005.
