Kharidas & Nangma Valley

Nangma Valley Peaks

The Nangma valley houses some of the finest sheer rock towers standing shoulder to shoulder including the Amin Brack (5584m) and Great Tower (5800m), Brakk Zang, Sotulpa Peak (4800m), Drifika, (6000m) pyramid of snow and ice. We have customized expeditions in this valley to provide maximum opportunity of scaling peaks as much as possible just setting a base camp at the summer settlement encircled by numerous rock towers.

The sheer minarets of Kharidas was first attempted by an Italian group organized by Blue Sky in 1999 and then followed by our next American and Canadian groups twice in 2000 and 2001 respectively. Since then, it has been gaining a good recognition among the rock climbers.

Besides the taste of pure rock climbing, this area will entertain you with its savage beauty of heaven and earth.
