Bhrikuti Peak Climbing

Bhrikuti was princess of King Angsu Barma in lichchhabi dynasty in 4th century in Nepal. She was married with contemporary Tibetan King Sang Tson Gampo. She was known as historical icon of Nepal-Tibet friendship establishment. That's why, name of this peak was baptized after her name, also this peak is located in Damodar Himalayan range between two trekking regions Nar Phu and Mustang in Tibetan boarder of Nepal at the altitude of 6460 m. It is technically not so difficult peak to climb on snows.

To attempt this peak, we can follow two routes to reach in Bhrikuti Shail Base Camp. Either from Mustang side or Nar Phu Side. Mustang side is more difficult than Nar Phu side. We have to cross challenging and very high pass Saribung La 6050 if we start from Mustang side. So, Nar Phu side is easier route because we should not pass any challenging pass, directly we can reach in Base Camp for the climbing.
