"Trekking peak" in the Langtang Region of Nepal. It is classed as Grade F (facile/easy) on the Alpine Grading system although this can vary by a point or so depending on the snow conditions. In 2003 I would have definitely rated the peak as PD. The peak is seldom climbed in it's own right, often being used as a warm-up for Naya Kanga on the opposite side of the valley. The summit gives surprisingly good views of Shishapangma if you are lucky enough with the weather. (We weren't!) This is an excellent peak as a "firstÂEin the Himalayas. The route involves a base camp at the end of the trail and a high camp a further half days trek beyond base.
