Kwak No Sung is a refined climber from South Korea who climbed Mt. Menthosa with us few years back with a team of four members. Menthosa is approached from Miyar Valley of Lahaul Himalaya in India and Base Camp of this beautiful peak is reached just in one day’s trek from nearby road head, Urgos. We consider this peak challenging and technical where after BC we normally have three more camps to summit the peak. We have organized several expeditions to Mount Menthosa in past but one with Mr. Kwak No Sung was memorable and learning to mention here as our tribute to his team
Menthosa 6440 Meters is the second highest peak in Lahul Himalaya and the highest is Mulkila 6517 m. Peak Menthosa was first climbed in 1970 by a British Service team and then onwards it is known in the climbing fraternity of the world. The Base Camp is in a delightful location set on grass, next to a stream.
The 7 km hike from Urgos to Menthosa Base Camp is a terrific hike: not too difficult, yet steep enough to be a good workout. With outstanding views of the surrounding peaks, all over 4,000 meters, off course the trek gives a lot back to mind. It is sure that in mountains the views only gets prettier as you go higher. The last 1000 meters elevation will be tough to climb but you finally reach the base camp situated at around 4200 meters.
