Overview

The Friendship Peak Expedition trek is the most popular summit among aspiring mountaineers and experienced high-altitude trekkers. Friendship Peak is located in Himachal Pradesh’s Pir Panjal range at an elevation of 5287 metres. Friendship Peak gives amazing panoramic views of the broader Himalayas from its summit.

On one side, Hanuman Tibba faces Friendship Peak, while on the other, Indrasan, Deo Tibba, Shitidhar, and the Seven Sisters face Hanuman Tibba. Climbing Friendship Peak does not necessitate any prior mountaineering training or experience, though it does necessitate the use of crampons and ropes at certain spots. To participate in this adventure, you must be physically fit and have prior high-altitude trekking experience.

Friendship Peak Expedition is a great option for Kanamo Peak and Stok Kangri. We’ll begin our journey at Dhundi and camp in Bakarthach. We next proceed to the advanced base camp known as ‘Lady Leg,’ where we will try the summit in full force.
