The technical difficult Hanuman Tibba is the highest mountain in the Dhauladhar Range. The peak name comes out from “Hanuman” he is a king of monkey and also the hero in ‘Ramayan’. Hanuman Tibba is a fantastic peak in the Western Himalaya and it’s not too far from the beautiful town of Manali. By Himalayan standards it is not the highest peak- standing tall at 59832m, but where it lacks in height it makes up in beauty. Surrounded by incredible glaciers, the peak is a white pyramid with each side of the pyramid giving a different look. This peak does require some technical knowledge of climbing. The Tentu Pass is the mixture of snow, ice and rock with the gradient up to 75° to 80°, which makes the climb difficult and exhaustive. After Tentu Pass a traverse to the mountain leads us from North – West ridge to South – East Ridge. During this traverse climber has to face lots of crevasses in the glacier. At the end of traverse just before the South – East ridge we will set up our summit camp.


 The nearest airport serving this beautiful hill station is situated at Bhuntar. Known as Kullu Manali Airport, it is at a distance of approximately 60 from Manali. 

  The road instead since there are some spellbinding picturesque views en route to be enjoyed. The destination has a good connectivity by road with cities like Delhi, Ambala, Chandigarh and Shimla serving as pivotal points. A number of bus services including private services like the very comfortable Volvo ply frequently from Delhi to Manali.

 The closest railway station is Chandigarh (315 km) or Pathankot (290 km). You can make your travel bookings till either of these two cities and then take a prepaid bus or a cab till Manali.

A short but steep climb takes you to a 300m long moraine field that culminates in the meadows of the Beas Kund region. A vast flatland, strewn with small boulders and streams, crowned by huge mountain faces and hanging glaciers, the topography of the region is in stark contrast to the prior days.

From here on, all the members of the expedition (guests, high-altitude porters (HAP), guide, etc.) will work together to carry loads, pitch and remove camp, cook and wash.

From the summit, you’ll have a 360 degree panoramic view of the peaks of the Dhauladhar, Pir Panjal and Greater Himalayan Ranges. After a quick photo session, we’ll head down from the summit.
