“The walking journey to the summit of the most beautiful mountain in Dolpo, through the trails unexplored and untrodden by not many travelers- Kanjirowa Peak Climbing”
6883m, is as high as trekkers/climbers can go during the Kanzirowa Expedition with Explore Dolpo. The stunning Mountain Kanzirowa is a unique peak worthwhile climbing to experience the high degree of alpine experience qnd extreme wilderness. Mountains in Dolpo are not scaled by so many climbers, hence the adventure of Kanjirowa Expedition is a journey of lifetime to the land where not many foot prints have been left back.
Our Kanjirowa Expedition begins at Juphal and winds through the most isolated regions of Dolpo, which are very rarely treaded all the way to the Base Camp of this beautiful peak. The trail to Kanjirowa Base Camp winds through sub-tropical forests and low alpine forests before getting into treeless zone. The villages encountered throughout the trail are religious diverse and culturally authentic. The landscapes through the Kanjirowa Peak Climbing Expedition are matchless.

Day 16: Summit Day
Today is the big day. We begin early towards the Summit of Mt. Kanzirowa. We have acclimatized well and hence to scale the peak just above 6000m would not be that difficult.
Regarding the requirement of technical skills, the mountain does not demand much of technicality.
However, the basic alpine skills including rope-works, ice-work and the use of mountaineering gears are important. We summit the Peak.
