Welcome to Gurla Mandata

Mt. Tukuche peak climbing (6920 m)

Mt.Tukuche peak (6920m) is an interesting climbing objective. It is a very picturesque almost symmetrical 3 ridge pyramid with Northwest,Southeast and South ridges radiating from the summit.The obvious and safe climb is along the Northwest ridge which is the most often climbed it presents very low objective danger.,

Although the ridge itself is not steep but it, is considered,technical climb and with the elevation close to 7000m) there is the need to acclimatize and the elevation exposes climbers to a cold and windy weather conditions. The climb is usually done using two camps at 5600m and at 6100m.
First Tukuche ascent was in 1969 by Swiss team and till 2007 a total 38 expeditions attempted the climb and 19 teams including 72 climbers were successful.,

After aesthetically satisfying climb the reward of the summit is an absolutely stunning vista on a whole range of massive. And famous 6000m, 7000m and 8000m peaks:Dhaulagiri I (8167m), .And Dhaulagiri II (7751m), Dhaulagiri III (7715m), Mt.Dhaulagiri V (7618m),Mt. Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna South (7219m), Bharth Chuli (6839m), Nilgiri North (7061m), Nilgiri Center (6940m)Mt.Tukuche is located in Mt.Dhaulgiri region 10.5km Northeast of Mt.Dhaulagiri I.

The Mt.Tukuche peak Base Camp (5100m) for the North Ridge climb is located in Hidden Valley midway between French and Dhampus passes. The standard 9 days access trek to the Base Camp follows a classic section of Mt. Annapurna Circuit via Poon Hill and Kali Gandaki Valley to Maphra and Mt.Dhaulagiri Base Camp Trek via Yak Kharka allowing a solid acclimatization.

Return trek from the Base Camp to Jomsom takes only 2 days followed by 20 minute  flight to Pokhara. Alternative approach is via Myagdi Khola Valley separating Dhaulagiri I from the rest of Dhaulagiri peaks Dhaulagiri II, III, IV and  V, via Italian Base Camp offering slightly different trekking aesthetics.,


1. Never trek alone. Hire a guide if you can’t find companion.
2. Choose trekking companies/guides with eco friendly concepts
3. Become informed about high altitude sickness.
4. Carry a good medicine kit.
5. Watch where you are walking. Don’t step backward blindly while raking photos.
6. Time your trek generously. Also, taking rest while trekking is not a sign of weakness.

My country Nepal

Nepal is a very beautiful country. It is also a landlocked country. China lies in the east side of the country. Likewise, India in west, north and south. It lies in the northern hemisphere. Our country has three geographical zones. They are Himalayan, Mountainous and Terai. Here, we have monsoon climate. It is very cold and dry during winter. And hot, stormy and rainy in summer. Furthermore, it is rich in natural beauty and resources. Here are long and wide rivers. Such as Koshi, Gandaki, Karnali, etc. Moreover, here are large lakes also. Like Rupa, Begnas, Rara, etc. Likewise, we have green valleys, lovely water falls, etc. Similarly, it is rich in religious and historical heritages. Lumbini, Gorkha, Janakpur, Kathmandu are the famous examples.

Nepal is highly diverse country. And has rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has many mountains. It includes eight of the world’s ten highest mountains. This also includes the highest  mountain Sagarmatha. It is known as Mount Everest in English. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. It contains over 240 peaks. They are more than 20,000 ft. (6,096 m) above sea level.

People of many castes and religions live here. About hundred languages are spoken  here. Our popular foods are dal bhat, dhindo, gundurk etc. Similarly, Dashain, Tihar, Lhosar, Id etc. They are the most popular festivals. We celebrate these festivals very happily. Most  of the people are farmers. They grow rice, corn, wheat, millet, potato etc. Some people in the cities are businessmen also.  Likewise, some have industries. Therefore, people living here are very laborious.

Nepal is rich in natural resources. So, tourists love to visit our country. They can see endangered birds and animals here. Also, they can enjoy natural beauty. So, tourism is our potential industry.

Nepal is small but rich in natural resources. Although it is poor by economic condition. Nepal is developing country. To develop soon,  we have to aware all the citizen. We must provide education equally. To both men and women. Government should bring advance program. This may help citizen in development process. And, provide different facilities to citizen. And it’ll give benefit to citizen. Finally, it’ll help the  government also.

Nepal is a beautiful country. So, we have to publish it all over the world. And it’ll help to attract tourist. In this way, we can control our economic condition. Therefore, we can achieve success by developing our strengths. face book
