Trip Overview

The towering Mount Gangapurna reaches a staggering height of 7,455 meters, situated prominently in the high Manang valley and towards the extreme north of the Annapurna mountain range. This majestic peak, positioned at 28°36’18” Latitude & 83°57’00” Longitude in the Gandaki Zone, stands as one of the lesser-climbed mountains in the Annapurna Himalayan range.

Ascending Gangapurna Peak involves navigating through sections with technical challenges along the climbing route to reach the summit. Due diligence and caution are essential, especially when encountering snow conditions and newly formed crevices.

Renowned for its beauty and allure, Gangapurna Expedition ranks among the most renowned peaks in Nepal. Nestled between Annapurna III and Tilicho peak in the Annapurna region, Mount Gangapurna (7,454m) was initially conquered in 1965 by a German expedition led by Günther Hauser via the East Ridge. This expedition offers awe-inspiring views of Himalayan peaks like Manaslu (8163m), Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna II (7937m), Annapurna III (7555m), Annapurna IV (7525m), Tilicho peak (7134m), Pisang peak (6091m), Chulu west peak (6419m), Chulu east peak, Thorung peak, among others, along with stunning landscapes, verdant valleys, and a blend of diverse cultures. Over the years, numerous mountaineers have successfully summited this awe-inspiring peak since it became accessible for expeditions.
