Description

About Mt. Satopanth

Satopanth in local dialect literally means ‘true path’. It is the second highest mountain in the Gangotri group in Uttarakhand and is quite a formidable undertaking. It makes for a compelling proposition to mountain junkies, willing to make the transition from ‘trekking’ peaks to ‘climbing’ peaks and experience the high alpine environment at 7,000m+!! The route includes a complex glacier approach, high angled snow slopes and knife edge ridge, before the final section to the summit. At just over 7,000m, the effect of high altitude is a significant factor, as is the remote location and possibility of extreme weather.

Mt. Satopanth serves as a good introduction to technical climbing, with climbers being exposed to the use of crampons, fixed ropes and jumar climbing. Many of the Indian expeditions to climb Mt. Everest or other 8,000m+ peaks climb Mt. Satopanth as a preparatory trip.
