Shitidhar Climb (5294 M)

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.
