Brief Description

Satopanth in local dialect literally means ‘true path’. It is the second highest mountain in the Gangotri group in Uttarakhand and is quite a formidable undertaking. It is one of the classic 7000 m test piece in the Indian Himalaya for amateur mountaineers. The route includes a complex glacier approach, high angled snow slopes and a technical knife edge ridge, before the final section to the summit. Mt. Satopanth serves as a good introduction to technical climbing, with climbers being exposed to the use of crampons, fixed ropes and jumar climbing. Many of the Indian expeditions to climb Mt. Everest or other 8,000m+ peaks climb Mt. Satopanth as a preparatory trip.
