Putha Hiunchuli (Dhaulagiri VII) is a mountain in Nepal and part of the Dhaulagiri Range. It lies at the west end of the Dhaulagiri II chain and is 7246 m high, making it the 95th highest mountain in the world. Putha Hiunchuli can be found at 28°44′50″N 83°08′55″E First climbed in 1954 by J. O. M. Roberts.
The technical difficulty level of Putha Himchuli is comparable to any classic route of the French Alps. Putha Hiuchuli has two routes to climb South ridge or North ridge. To climb from South ridge, we have to install many camps to reach in summit which is technically difficult but every climbers have been following same route. But if you climb from North ridge from Dolpo side, it is more easier but trekking cost will be more expensive when the route is so longer.
