    Mt. Thelu Expedition

     Brief Description

    Mount Thelu falls in the Garhwal range of the Himalayas. The region is called a mountaineer’s paradise, as one has ample opportunities to climb here. Mountaineers from all around the world can be seen here, with dreams of climbing one of the mountains in the region. The range consists of some of the main peaks of the Garhwal region, like, Mt. Shivling, Mt. Meru 1,2,3, Mt. Thalaysagar, Mt. Saifi 1,2, Mt. Sudarshan, Mt. Bhrigupanth, Mt. Kedar Dome, Mt. Chaukhamba, Mt. Bhagirathi 1,2,3, Mt. Satopanth and countless unnamed peaks. A little bit of information about some peaks, as I know, is given below.
    Amongst these various peaks, Mt. Satopanth and Mt. Thalaysagar are considered two toughest ones to climb. People say that even the approach march to the base camp of these peaks constitutes a long trek within itself. Mt. Shivling is known for its East Pillar, which was first climbed by Doug Scott in a truely alpine style.
    One of our mentors, Mr. Surendra Chavan, fondly called S A, is a summiteer of Mt. Satopanth as well as Mt. Everest. We were fortunate enough to get some tips from him, during our practise sessions in the Sahyadris.
    Mt. Chaukhamba is another remote peak, for which, one has to place 6 to 7 camps on the Bhagirathi glacier, known for its treacherous morrain, the snout of which is nothing else but the sacred “Gaumukh”, the birth of river Ganga.

    • Explore to Vishwanath Temple.
    • Preparation for further move.
    • Overnight stay in hotel.
    • Mount Thelu expedition starts from the holy city of Gangotri. The drive from Uttarkashi to Gangotri is a 100 km road trip through winding mountain roads. Which will pass through Harshil Valley.
    • After reaching Gangotri, we will attend evening aarti at Gangotri temple. And seek blessings for the successful completion of the campaign. We will spend the night at a hotel in Gangotri

    • Overnight stay in hotel.
    • Today is the first day you’ll be trekking for the Mt. Thelu Expedition. We’ll be waking up early, having breakfast, and start our trek towards Bhojwasa. The entire trek is in the Gangotri National Park.
      The trek today is of gentle and easy ascent. It is a well-paved path and you will also meet several pilgrims on the way to Gaumukh and Gangotri glacier. The views of Sudarshan Parbat will accompany you soon after starting your trek. You will be trekking beside the Bhagirathi river. You can hear the gentle and meditating sound of the Bhagirathi river flowing down below.
      Once you reach Chirbasa, rest and have some snacks and continue your trek towards the Bhojwasa campsite. The trail to Bhojwasa has several landslide-prone sections as well so we will need to be careful and watchful for any falling rocks.
      Just before you reach Bhojwasa, you will see views of the whole valley ahead of you. This is an amazing viewpoint. Once you reach Bhojwasa, you can get the first views of Mt. Shivling. The Bhagirathi river flows just beside the campsite overnight in tents. 

    • Today we will be trekking to Raktban, the base camp of Mount Thelu expedition. The path of Raktaban continues at the snout of Gangotri Glacier, over Gaumakh and beyond. We will cross the moraine and glacier and continue to the left and head towards Raktaban – a beautiful meadow.
      Once we reach that, we will relax and allow our body to adapt to the high altitude environment. We will spend time discussing the route of the climb and observing the features of the mountain. We will also have a briefing and training session in the evening to refresh our technical climbing skills.
