Palung Ri Expedition

Palung Ri Expedition

Palung Ri is situated north of Cho Oyu, E-NE of Nangpa La (Khumbu La) is one of the recently opened peaks for climbing and yet remains unclimbed. The peak is seen from Hungde on the way to Cho Oyu B C .The facts of less visited area and the lack of information of previous climb make the expedition a true and challenging quest of adventure. It is essential to be totally self-sufficient to remain self contained for the expedition. A trip to this mountain gives an opportunity to venture into a little visited asyet un-spoilt region of Tibet.

Acclimatization

Mission Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
