However, the road to Sankri is quite scenic.

As you begin your journey towards Black Peak Base Camp, the Black Peak gradually begins to come into view. Today’s walk is quite a bit challenging and you will cross valleys and bouldered sections. Glorious mountain views greet you on both sides. It’s quite a steep climb to Kyarkoti and the bouldered patch adds to the difficulty.

 

About an hour into the trek, you will arrive at a landslide-prone area. Be cautious and follow the guidance of your trek leader and guide. Crossing this landslide section, you will enter into a grassland patch, the Rupin River beautifully flows down below. You will be walking uphill and downhill for quite some time crossing hill after hill, crossing water bodies flowing directly from the glaciers and a rough bouldered patch before you arrive at Kyarkoti. The bouldered section is approximately 3 km and completely inclined. 

 

Once you arrive at Kyarkoti campsite, you will notice that Kyarkoti is a huge patch of grassland surrounded by boulders and snow-covered peaks. The campsite is situated right below the foothills of Swargarohini peaks. There’s also a campsite that runs by the campsite. As you settle on the campsite, you can get quite a good glimpse of your ultimate goal - the Black Peak. The evenings tend to be quite cold so keep warm layers in the ready.

The trail to Advanced Base Camp takes you through varied terrains from grasslands to a bouldered section which is followed by quite a steep climb through a landslide-prone area onto a moraine patch and finally to a glacier. It takes about 5 hours to climb to the Advanced Base Camp. 

 

As you climb up towards the Advanced Base Camp the path becomes narrower so be cautious and follow the advice and guidance of the Trek Leader at all times. Be especially wary of the landslide zone. Halfway through the trek, you will get your first sightings of the Bandarpoonch I and the frozen glacier stream flowing from it. Even from a distance, you can spot the huge crevasses. The last leg of the trek is especially difficult with big cracked rocks fallen from the mountain along with the sand and dust. 

 

Finally walking for about 5 to 6 hours depending on your pace, you arrive at the Advanced Base Camp. The campsite is surrounded by towering mountain peaks. Bandarpoonch stands tall in front of you in all its glory and the majestic views are enough to take all your tiredness away. 

 

The altitude of the Advanced Base Camp is quite high and the temperature drops very drastically in the evening and is quite windy as well so layer yourself up for protection against the cold. Sleep well as you have many adventurous days ahead.

Rest/ Acclimatization/ Load Ferry

  • Trek Leader will decide how to utilize this day.

Since we will be gaining a lot of altitude in the upcoming days, it is necessary that we take a rest day and acclimatize well to the altitude. Acclimatizing the body to terrain, altitude, and temperature is highly crucial to avoid AMS.  

 

Today you will also be introduced to the gears that you will be using during the upcoming days and receive training on using the gears, walking skills, tying knots, using an ice axe, etc. Enjoy the evening and rest well at night. The next few days are going to be incredibly thrilling.

Today you will head to Camp 1. As you ascend from Advanced Base Camp to Camp 1, you will be greeted with the views of Swargarohini on the North and Bandarpoonch on the south. The terrain that you will cross today will be full of crevasses so be extra cautious. The trek distance is not as much so take your time to adapt to the terrain and make your way safely forward.

 

Although today’s trek is short, it can be slightly draining because of the altitude gain. The trail is pretty tricky to navigate as well. Sometimes the trail is visible and then becomes narrow and even disappears at times. The trail is pretty inclined and filled with rocks and boulders making it quite challenging. The landscape changes pretty drastically. From the dry lands at the base of the mountains, you will soon arrive at the dry glacier beds. 

 

After about 2 hours of walking through rugged terrains, you will arrive at Camp 1. Settle in the campsite and take in the wonderful views around you, soon you will be submitting the Black Peak itself. You can walk around the campsite and get yourself acquainted with the terrain. The sunset from Camp 1 is especially beautiful, the colours of the setting sun paint the sky and the snow-covered peaks in vivid hues creating a mesmerizing visual treat. 

 

Once the sun sets, it increasingly becomes colder and colder and the wind also kicks up in speed. Make sure that you have enough warm layers on. You will have a delicious dinner before retiring to your tents. Tomorrow you will be heading to the Summit Camp.

After having breakfast at Camp 1, we will be heading towards Summit Camp. Today and tomorrow are the most important days and also the most adventurous. While the distance today is short, just about 3 km but the previous days walk will give you an idea of how difficult the terrain could be.

 

Today, you will be walking completely over snow and working together as a team as you approach the summit. The climb begins with a gradual incline and once you have made up the incline section, you arrive at a flat surface that opens up the full view of Black Peak. You can capture the majestic beauty of Kalanag in your cameras here. You can also see enormous crevasses and small snow bridges on your way. White-covered mountain ranges surround you on all sides and it just appears surreal to all the senses. 

 

The journey to the Summit Camp will be full of ups and downs, sometimes you will climb steep inclines and sometimes you will be walking on flat trails as well. There is a quick elevation gain so maintain a steady pace and do not over-exert yourself. Crossing ice bridges, navigating around crevasses, and climbing over steep sections with knee-deep snow at times, you will arrive at the summit camp.

After a complete check by our team, we will start towards the summit.

 

The only light that you have at this hour is from the headlamps so be extra cautious as you move forward. Approaching the summit today is all about tackling the heavy snow covers and maintaining a steady pace as you keep gaining elevation. You will be navigating around crevasses that aren’t as easily visible which adds to the challenge of the trek. 

 

The entire trek today is inclined and completely covered with layers of snow. Follow the steps created by your Trek Leader on the snow. Around the break of dawn, as the first rays of sun hit the slopes, you will be mesmerized by the sight of such huge mountains surrounding you on all sides. The morning glow of the sun casts its golden shadow on the snow-covered peaks basking them in the golden hour glory. It is a sight that remains imprinted on your memory forever.

How To Reach

It is essential for everyone to arrive at Dehradun (06:00 am). 

Once you have reached Dehradun, TTH will manage the rest of your travel arrangements, if you have opted for TTH's pick-up service, you can select this option during the booking process by adding it as an add-on.

 

Options to reach Dehradun - First, you can arrive at Delhi, Dehradun airport or Chandigarh. The journey from these locations to Dehradun is explained below.

1. Take an overnight train.

2. Take a bus to Dehradun, and then take a cab to the pickup point (Railway station).

Delhi to Dehradun - 250km | 6hr.

Chandigarh to Dehradun - 220km | 5hr 

The distance from the Dehradun Bus Stand (ISBT) to the Railway Station is 6 km, without traffic, it will take 15 minutes.

We always recommend to go for the govt. Buses over the private ones outside the bus station as based on the experience we have found that there are very high chances of delay involved with private buses. Also, govt. Buses are always more reliable. Whichever bus you choose, just make sure to reach Dehradun at least by 05:30 am positively.

3. Take flight to Dehradun airport (Jolly Grant Airport) (25 km, 50 min), if coming by flight then come one day early.

 

The designated drop-off point is Dehradun Railway station.

Arrive in Dehradun Railway Station by 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

Please consider planning your subsequent travel arrangements after 9:00 pm.

The distance from Railway Station to Dehradun Bus Stand (ISBT) is 6 km, it will take approx 25 minutes.

The distance from Railway Station to Dehradun Airport is 28km, it will take approx 45min to 1hr.

It's highly advisable to keep a buffer day in your travel plan. If the buffer day is not needed, it can be used to explore Dehradun/Mussoorie/Rishikesh.

If you prefer to travel independently to Base camp and don't want to take TTH's pick-up service, you can either take a government bus or book a private cab from Rishikesh. Your trek coordinator will provide guidance on how to arrange for the bus or cab booking.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

Note

  • The issuance of a voucher is not applicable in situations where you are required to descend from the trek for any reason. The trek leader may make the decision to send you down from the trek due to factors such as insufficient fitness level, symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), high blood pressure, exceeding the designated turn-around-time, health concerns, or if you are found smoking, drinking, or violating the rules set for the trek. In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.

In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek. This voucher can be redeemed at any time within one year from the date of issue. Please note that a refund fee or reimbursement of the cost difference is not applicable in these cases.

Proper Nutrition: Provide a well-balanced diet with sufficient carbohydrates for energy and foods rich in iron to prevent altitude sickness. Adequate Sleep: Ensure your child gets enough sleep in the days leading up to the trek. Quality rest is crucial for altitude adaptation. Educate on Altitude Sickness: Teach your child about the symptoms of altitude sickness, such as headache, nausea, and dizziness. Encourage them to communicate any discomfort immediately. Appropriate Clothing and Gear: Dress your child in layers to adjust to changing temperatures. Ensure they have appropriate trekking gear, including sturdy footwear. Positive Mindset: Foster a positive mindset. Encourage your child, and let them know it's okay to take breaks when needed. Medical Check-Up: Schedule a medical check-up before the trek to ensure your child is fit for high-altitude activities. Consult with a healthcare professional about any potential health concerns.

Choosing the right trek for a beginner can be a bit overwhelming as there are many factors to consider such as distance, elevation gain, terrain difficulty, weather, and time of year. Here are some tips that can help you choose the right trek for a beginner:

1. Determine fitness level: Assess the fitness level of the beginner to understand their physical capabilities. This will help you select a trek that is challenging but not too difficult.

2. Choose a well-traveled trail: A well-traveled trail will have more amenities such as signposts, water stations, and shelter. It is also safer as there will be other hikers on the trail.

3. Consider the length of the trek: For beginners, it is recommended to start with a shorter trek that can be completed in a day or two. This will help them get acclimatized to trekking and build their confidence.

4. Look for gradual elevation gain: Choose a trek with a gradual elevation gain rather than steep ascents. This will make the trek easier and more enjoyable.

5. Check the weather: Check the weather forecast before selecting a trek. Avoid treks during the monsoon season or winter when the trails can be slippery or dangerous.

6. Research the trail: Read about the trail to get an idea of the terrain, altitude, and difficulty level. This will help you select a trek that is suitable for the beginner.

7. Consult with an expert: If you are unsure about which trek to choose, consult our trek expert Mr. Nitin (+91 70600 59773) between 10 AM to 6 PM (Tuesday - Friday). Mr. Nitin will provide you valuable advice and guidance.

Overall, it is important to choose a trek that is enjoyable, challenging but not too difficult, and suitable for the beginner's fitness level and experience.

It is not recommended for a beginner to choose a difficult Himalayan trek. Trekking in the Himalayas can be physically and mentally challenging, especially if you are not used to the high altitude, steep slopes, and rugged terrain. Choosing a difficult trek without the proper experience, fitness level, and preparation can be dangerous and put you at risk of altitude sickness, injury, and other hazards.

If you are a beginner, it is recommended to start with an easier trek and gradually build up your skills and experience. This will help you understand the challenges of trekking in the Himalayas, and also prepare you physically and mentally for a more difficult trek in the future. It is also important to choose a trek that matches your fitness level, experience, and interest.

There is no specific age limit for a beginner trekker. However, it is important to consider your physical fitness, health condition, and personal interests before embarking on a trek. Trekking in the Himalayas can be physically and mentally demanding, and requires a certain level of physical fitness and endurance.

If you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are above a certain age, it is recommended to consult with a doctor before embarking on a trek. It is also important to listen to your body and take breaks as needed during the trek to prevent exhaustion or injury.

Toilet tents provide a convenient solution for answering nature's call in the great outdoors. Dry toilets, in particular, offer a highly sanitary approach. By digging a pit and utilizing mud and a shovel, you can easily cover up your waste. This method ensures cleanliness and hygiene while camping or exploring in the forest. 

Remember to pack essential toiletries to complete your outdoor bathroom kit and maintain proper personal hygiene during your adventures. With these practices in place, you can enjoy nature while also respecting it.

Black Peak Expedition is a challenging mountaineering adventure located in the Indian Himalayas. Standing tall at an elevation of 6,387 meters, the peak is known for its steep slopes, unpredictable weather conditions, and breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. The expedition requires technical climbing skills and experience, making it suitable for experienced mountaineers. The journey to the summit takes several days, involving acclimatization, camping, and navigating through rugged terrain. Despite the challenges, the Black Peak Expedition offers an unforgettable experience for those seeking to push their limits and explore the beauty of the Himalayas.

Black Peak Expedition is an extremely challenging trek that requires a great deal of physical fitness and prior experience in Himalayan trekking. The trek is ideal for seasoned trekkers and expert mountaineers.

The cost of Black Peak expeditions is 72,500 INR.

It is a 15-day long Expedition.

The best time to attempt the climb is during May to June (pre monsoon) and September to October (post monsoon).

Here is a general list of equipment that is typically required for a climb of this nature:

1. Mountaineering boots - High-quality, insulated and crampon-compatible boots are essential for the challenging terrain and cold temperatures.

2. Crampons - These metal spikes attach to the boots to provide traction on icy surfaces.

3. Ice Axe - A tool used for self-arrest and as an anchor on steep and icy terrain.

4. Harness and Climbing rope - Used for safety on steep terrain and crevasses.

5. Helmet - A protective helmet is essential for protection against falling rocks or ice.

6. Climbing protection - Various equipment used for protection such as nuts, cams, slings, and carabiners.

7. Clothing - Warm and waterproof clothing, including a down jacket, insulated pants, gloves, and a hat.

8. Sunglasses and sunscreen - High altitude sunlight can be strong and harmful, so protection is necessary.

9. Backpack - A large, sturdy backpack for carrying all necessary equipment and personal items.

10. Sleeping bag and tent - A high-quality sleeping bag rated for extremely cold temperatures, and a sturdy tent that can withstand strong winds and snow.

11. Cooking equipment - A stove, fuel, and utensils for cooking food and melting snow for water.

12. Communication equipment - A satellite phone or radio for emergencies and communication with the outside world.

A porter can be very helpful for a Black Peak expedition, especially if you are carrying a lot of gear or supplies. A porter can assist with carrying heavy loads, which can take some of the strain off of your own body and allow you to conserve your energy for the climb itself.

In addition, porters are often familiar with the local terrain and can provide valuable assistance with route finding and logistics. They can also assist with setting up and breaking down camp, cooking meals, and other tasks that can be time-consuming and physically demanding.

The Black Peak Expedition can be a challenging and potentially dangerous undertaking. Some of the risks involved in this type of expedition include:

1. Altitude sickness: As Black Peak is a high-altitude mountain, climbers may experience altitude sickness, which can range from mild symptoms such as headaches and nausea to more severe symptoms such as swelling of the brain or lungs.

2. Extreme weather conditions: The weather on Black Peak can be unpredictable and severe, with high winds, heavy snowfall, and freezing temperatures. Climbers must be prepared for these conditions and have the necessary equipment and experience to handle them.

3. Falls and avalanches: The terrain on Black Peak can be steep and exposed, making falls a real danger. Avalanches are also a risk, especially in areas with heavy snowfall or during periods of rapid temperature change.

4. Equipment failure: Climbing equipment can fail, and a failure at a critical moment can be life-threatening. It is essential to use high-quality equipment that has been properly maintained and to have a backup plan in case of equipment failure.

5. Poor communication: In remote mountain environments, communication can be challenging, and climbers must be prepared for the possibility of limited or no communication with the outside world.

6. Fatigue and dehydration: Climbing at high altitudes can be physically demanding, and climbers must be prepared for the possibility of exhaustion and dehydration.

In general, many climbing organizations and guides recommend a maximum team size of around <strong>6-8 people</strong> for safety reasons, as larger groups can increase the risk of accidents, slow down progress, and put a strain on available resources. However, the team size can vary depending on the level of experience and skill of the climbers, as well as the support available to the team.
