Mt. Putha Hiunchuli, also known as Mt. Dhaulagiri VII at 7246 m, is the western most peak of Dhaulagiri range and is the last 7000 m mountain marking the end of the snow-capped range. This mountain was first climbed in 1954 by Jimmy Roberts, a legendary explorer, and climber.

Hi On Life Adventures have been looking for a relatively easier and safer 7000 m mountain in Nepal, hence we introduce Mt. Putha Hiunchuli, for those who want to climb high mountains without much technical difficulty and avalanche dangers. Moreover, for those adrenaline freaks out there, you can add more exhilaration to your climb by skiing down this mountain, as it provides a good slope to ski down.

Unlike most parts of Nepal which are thronged by thousands of tourists, not many people know about this mountain and its region, thus providing you the chance to explore its uniqueness. Even the approach to this mountain is enchanting and mesmerizing as we walk through high cliffs, deep canyons and breathtaking valleys of the famous but relatively less explored and restricted area of Nepal, called the Dolpa.

Although it is a relatively easier mountain to climb, Mt. Putha Hiunchuli is still a 7000 m+ mountain and nevertheless, it should be taken seriously and with utmost preparation. A very high level of physical fitness is required as it involves endurance climb at very high altitude and extremely low temperatures. Temperatures on summit day could be as low as -40 degrees Celsius.
