Changabang Peak Expedition
A great number of mountaineers have their sights set on Changabang peak, which is a granite spire located in the Garhwal Himalaya to the north of Nanda Devi. The mountain of Changabang is an unexpected sight. The changabang base camp is situated on the ramani glacier moraine, and its primary purpose is to scout out a path to the summit of the mountain. The east ridge connects changabang and kalanka . It is possible to traverse the glacier and go along the eastern side of the icefall by following this path.
The changabanga straight cramponing summit is reached by climbing up a steep snow slope that sometimes has rocks. On the east ridge that connects Changabang Peak and Kalanka Peak, there is more powder snow over a gentler slope as well as on the col. The blue-covered mountains of Tibet may be seen in the distant distance to the north. Read More
These are the distances of god. The Kailash Mountain Range may be seen in the distance to the east. On June 4, 1974, Mt. Changabang was climbed for the first time. The terrain at Changabang is a mixed difficult grade consisting of rock, snow, and ice.
And maximum time u have to climb in vertical surface. Climbing Mt. Changabang is an exceptionally difficult challenge for mountaineers. This challenge will test both your resolve and your capacity for patience.
It is definitely one of the natural vestiges that the Garhwal Himalayas have to offer, but due to the terrible weather conditions, it is one of the places that is seldom visited. It is always a treat for the eyes to take a stroll along some exciting paths while getting vistas of some majestic peaks in the area. The road that you go on on a hike is where the majority of the adventure resides.

➽ Preparation for Expedition
During the wonderful Himalayan trek, mind, body, and spirit must all be overcome, as you well know. Precise preparation, with appropriate pliability of observing and confronting circumstances, is essential. Due to the difficulty and unpredictability of expeditions, participation is limited to those who have completed trekking at altitudes of at least 4,500 metres at least four to five times or have finished a Basic Mountaineering course.
The following are some considerations for the Changabang Peak Expedition:
⦿ Physically – An Expedition requires a lot of physical endurance, therefore you should start working out a month before signing up for a programme. Strengthen your legs by jogging and working out regularly to increase your stamina. To better acclimatise to the environment and increase your resilience on the walk, you should give up smoking and undertake breathing exercises twice a day. Participate wholeheartedly in sports, Yoga, and other cardiovascular activities. Sometimes you have to climb for 20 hours straight, therefore you need to be ready to push yourself to the maximum, which is only possible with well-defined pre- and post-climb training.
⦿ Mentally – As essential as physical training is for an Expedition, so too is mental preparation. Relax, enjoy your regular activities, and take care of yourself before embarking on an Adventure. Don't put yourself through mental anguish by making guesses or planning ahead for the Expedition. Get together with your closest pals to rejuvenate and refocus your thinking. After you join the March and meet the rest of the pack, you will find encouragement and excitement, proving that your pre-expedition preconceptions were unfounded. As you endure the hardships of the journey, both your mental and physical toughness will increase. Hence, as you make your way up to each campground, it's a good idea to pay attention to different sections of the body and actively relax them. Focus on the path or whatever perilous terrain you must carefully handle when climbing, and attempt to relax your body. Try out a few new walking techniques to add some fun to your commute that has nothing to do with getting anywhere. The best way to keep one's mind in good shape when traveling is to relax and enjoy the ride.
⦿ Technically –
Choose the right size of trekking or climbing shoes and walk with it, from a technical standpoint. Fill a 60-liter container. Carry as much as you can in your rucksack on a regular basis to become accustomed to walking lengthy distances with it. You should equip yourself with a trekking pole, water bottle, warm socks, thermals, fleece, feather jackets, cap, trousers, poncho, flip flops, and any necessary equipment like a power bank and camera (DSLR or digital camera). Get a sling and use it to perfect the primary knots you'll need for the ascent.
The rewards of a successful mountain ascent are well worth the effort required to reach the top, which may be as daunting as the mountain itself. The Himalayan Adventure Tours Expedition to Mighty Mountain Kang Yatse awaits your honest participation.

Everything about our visit to Prashar lake was better than we could have imagined. From our initial contact with Himalayan Adventure Trips, we felt their genuine interest in learning about our group's goals and expectations, and our travels with them reinforced at every turn that they not only understood our requirements but also have the acute skill and expertise to achieve them. Having already had such a wonderful experience with this firm, I will be promoting a trek to Prashar lake to all my friends who share my passion for hiking and will specifically recommend that they work with this outfit. Absolutely fantastic; I have nothing but praise for it.
