Mt. Mulkila Climbing Expedition
Mount Mulkila is one of the ten peaks in the M range that make up the Gems of Lahoul Valley. Central Lahoul, on the Mirang Glacier, is where you'll find the whole range from M1 to M10. The 'M' series of mountains forms a horseshoe around the Mirang Glacier, with its many glacial fingers extending upward into valleys and ridges separating the summits. M4 is a challenging mountain because to its steep ice and the loose rocks that slope tilt up till the summit. In September of 1939, an Anglo-American team made the first successful attempt to climb M4. One of the crew members, Hilda Richmond, was killed by a falling stone while washing in a brook about 500 metres from the base camp, tainting the trip's success. Since then, efforts had been rare, and when they were undertaken, they usually ended in failure because to the presence of hostile circumstances at greater altitudes. Darcha hamlet, just outside of Keylong on the Manali Leh motorway, is where the Mount Mulkila adventure begins. Next, we'll set up several transit camps as we make our way through the little settlement of Yetse and towards the base. The valley further splits at a river junction at around 3500 m in elevation. We'll need to ford this river to reach the northern entrance to Milang Glacier. Read More

➽ Preparation for Expedition
As you well know, the great Himalayan expedition is one that requires careful preparation, a strategy that allows for enough flexibility to adapt to whatever challenges may arise.
Therefore, here are some things to consider before setting out on your Mt. Mulkila Climbing Expedition:
⦿ Physically – You should start working out at least a month before signing up for a program if you want to be physically prepared for the rigours of a journey. 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. Engage in vigorous physical activity, such as playing sports, doing Yoga, or running.
⦿ Mentally –
Getting in shape physically is essential, but mental preparation is just as crucial for a successful walk. Take time to enjoy your regular activities, maintain a healthy diet and sleep schedule, and unwind before embarking on a hike. Predictions regarding the journey should not cause mental worry. Spend time with your closest pals to recharge your batteries and renew your spirit. Pre-trek preconceptions are unwarranted since the first contact with the other trekkers is certain to be a source of inspiration and energy. Conditions during the walk will contribute to the increase in mental readiness. The mental repercussions of physical disadvantages will not be ignored. So, when you hike, pay attention to different regions of your body and purposefully relax them. If you want to enjoy your hike, you should learn to loosen up a little, particularly in the hips. Think about your descent as a simple dance, and enjoy the natural rhythms that the path and your body can discover together gradually, whether you're on a flowing downhill route or a frightening slope. Try out a few new walking techniques to add some fun to your commute without worrying about getting somewhere in particular. Maintaining mental fitness mostly requires a willingness to relax and take in the journey, rather than subjecting oneself to undue stress.

Climbing Hanuman Tibba in August 2019 with Good Company
In the company of Hat, Sameer, Arun, and I climbed to the summit of Hanuman Tibba (at an altitude of 5932 metres). With Shera at the helm as the chief guide, along come Vishal, Panna, and Jaggi, who work together to form a tight-knit, effective, and amiable unit. The majority of our time was spent in a high-quality 4-person tent; the given gear was not brand new but adequate, with the exception of a few small difficulties with one of the sleeping bags. Both the meal and the hot beverages were delicious. Manu was simple to get in touch with before to our adventure, and he answered all of our questions (there weren't many) thoroughly. Basically, my time spent on adventure with Himalayan Adventure Trips was both personally rewarding and professionally enriching.
