Pangarchulla Peak Trek - March 2023

Recommended Posts

Hi Prashant, 

Glad to see that you are planning on doing the Pangarchulla Peak trek.

The months of March/April offer the right amount of snow for a successful climb to the Pangarchulla summit. It is proper Spring on the Pangarchulla trek at this time. The snow is melting, giving way to lush meadows. The campsites are free of snow but there is plenty of deposited hard snow above 12,000 ft. This is the right amount of snow required for facilitating the summit climb.

However, please note that Pangarchulla Peak trek is categorized as a difficult trek level 1 trek. The trek reaches an altitude of 15,070 ft.  The summit day goes up to 12 hours of hard trek climbing up and down an altitude of 4,000 ft in a single day. The summit climb is challenging and has steep, uneven and exposed sections. For reference see  https://indiahikes.com/pangarchulla#trek-difficulty.

Hence, please ensure you are well prepared for this trek. Since, without prior high altitude trek experience and excellent physical preparation, this trek is almost impossible to do. 

Hope to see you in the mountains soon.
