Shitidhar Climb (5294 m)

 

Region Himachal

At 5294mts plus, Shiti (white) dhar (peak) is the perfect introductory peak for mountaineering. It is ideal for trekkers without climbing experience, wanting to summit a Himalayan peak. Its south face offers a straightforward but challenging route to the summit. Shitidhar’s accessibility makes it doubly attractive. The base camp, by the emerald Beas Kund, the source of the Beas, is just a day’s trek away from Manali. The climb offers spectacular close-up views of Hanuman Tibba on the west, and in the distance, to the east, of Indrasan, Deotibba and the lesser mountains of the Pir Panjal.
