Gurja Himal (7193m/23,599ft) expedition is referred to locally as the least Dhaulagiri pinnacle of the Dhaulagiri go.


Numerous mountain darlings had plans to ascend this unclimbed crest from 1956 till 1969 yet numerous climbers invested so much energy looking through the state of the mountain and conceivable ascending courses and the pinnacle didn't see a fruitful rising. Numerous climbers had been frustrated when the Nepal government shut the top for campaigns from 1968 till 1979. Gurja Himal was first jumped on November 1, 1969, from the West edge by Mr. T. Saeki, Lhakpa Tenzing, A. Inouye, S. Kanayama, H. Sakai, K. Shimoda, and Y. Yakushi.The expedition was lead by a Japanese campaign group which included Y. Yakushi. The Gurja Himal undertaking is appropriate for those climbers who are happy to summit 7000m crests in a less touristic region are and are not keen on climbing the jam-packed pinnacles like Himlung, Ama Dablam and Baruntse. From the summit, you will have extraordinary perspectives on Dhaulagiri II, Dhaulagiri III, Dhaulagiri IV, Dhaulagiri V, Churen Himal (Main), Churen Himal (East), Churen Himal (West), Dhaulagiri VI, Putha Hiunchuli (Dh VII), Gurja Himal, False Junction Peak, Junction Peak. The pinnacle is situated at the directions of 28°40′26″N longitude and 83°16′37″E scope.
 
Pre-winter and spring are the best climbing seasons, inside those seasons March, April, September, and October are the greatest months for climbing. In the wake of orchestrating licenses and last arrangements for the expedition in Kathmandu, you will be left to Pokhara to Durbang via vehicle. The trekking parade course begins from Darbang and regularly takes around 7 days to arrive at the Gurja Himal South base camp by means of Dharpatan, Takum, Lumsung, Gurja town, Burjung Kharka, and Darling Kharka. The base camp is situated around the stature of the 4600m/15,091ft.
 
Your prosperity or disappointment in climbing will be controlled by your front end arrangements and encounters. Sherpa Expedition and Trekking advice customers to have at any rate two fruitful 6000m pinnacles, generally excellent information of ice and shake climbing and how to rise and slip fixed lines. You don't should be quick yet you should be relentless and solid. Mental durability assumes a huge job as does the capacity to unwind and allow your to body adapt.
 
Before summiting Gurja Himal, Sherpa Expedition and Trekking climbing Sherpa guide will fix camp I at tallness of 5300m(17,388ft)Camp II 5900m(19,357ft) and Camp III at (6500m/21,325ft.) for better acclimatization. When you land at the base camp, our staff will set up the camp and you will have the opportunity to rest and keep on acclimatizing. After finishing a Puja service at base camp, our group of Sherpa's will start to open the course to camp I. At the point when this is finished, our aides will start to take customers and burdens to camp I. Contingent upon your physical wellness and bodies' response to elevation, you may remain at camp I for a subsequent night, or climb to camp II and afterward slip back to base camp. Our group will at that point open the course and fix lines to camp II and supply the camp with apparatus, gear, and nourishment. Whenever required for acclimation and if the climate conditions permit, you may rest a second night at camp II. During your rest and time at base camp, our group will keep on opening the course, fix camp III and get ready for the summit push. After your camp I and II acclimatization, our climbing aides will check the climate estimate, bunch wellness, and recuperation conditions. In the case of forthcoming meteorological forecasts, your physical wellness and conditions are great, we will start the summit push. On the summit push, you will move from camp I, II and afterward camp III before moving to the summit. At camp II you will wake at 3:00 am to start your summit push.
