Mt. Gurja Himal (7,193m / 23,599ft.) is the smallest seven-thousander in the Dhaulagiri range of mountains. After several failed attempts for years, the first successful attempt to summit the Gurja Himal was made in 1969 via the west ridge by a Japanese expedition. This summit is a vantage point for spectacular views of the Dhaulagiri peaks, the Churen peaks, and other prominent white mountains in the massifs. The climb requires experience in technical mountain climbing, as there are obstacles of ice and rock climbing on the way up to the summit.
The Gurja Himal expedition begins and ends at Darbang. Climbers looking for a less touristic 7,000m peak in Nepal, opt for the Gurja Himal as the peak is still not a very popular expedition peak. The Gurja Himal base camp is situated at a height of 4,600m. The long trek to the camp takes you across villages, riversides and forests. You can rest at teahouses and acclimatize at the base camp before the higher and more strenuous climb. There are two more camps set up at higher altitudes during the Gurja Himal Expedition-7193m/23593ft. Expeditions usually return back from the highest camp as the climb up the dominating peak is dangerous and risky during certain weather conditions.
