Dolpa, which lies in the Himalayas’s lap, has several interesting mountain peaks. Mt. Putha is the 7th peak of the Dhaulagiri range and lies to the South of the district headquarters Dunai. In these recent days, this fascinating mountain has become very popular among the expedition groups. Though it is mostly popular in Germany, Netherlands, and France, it is popular in other countries too.

The mountain is technically safe but it always remains thickly covered with snow, therefore skiing can be done from the summit to camp 1. A short trek reaches the base camp of the mountain through an interesting village Kagkot. The people of these villages believe that Mt. Putha as their sacred mountain since their existence. Putha is regarded as the name of their main God.

The way up to Kagkot is also full of cultural and natural excitements. The general treks do not go through this trail so it offers you extra delightful experiences. The short trek up to the base camp with the popular animal of Dolpa Yak as the means of transport adds you the feeling of being in Dolpa. Further, the expanse of the mountain is so beautiful, all these things together make the expedition interesting and exciting.

(Note: After the summit, one can also trek to the popular trekking zone JOMSOM from Kagkot.)
