Mt. Tukuche is a spectacular peak situated in front of Dhaulagiri 1 and the Annapurna range. Tukuche was first climbed by a Swiss team in 1969. Due to its remote location and the seriousness of the terrain, the area is seldom visited by commercial trekking groups. As far as risk factor is concerned, the expedition to Tukuche Peak is regarded as ‘low risk’.
Our summit attempt for Tukuche Peak begins once we reach Hidden Valley BC. Having set up Base Camp we will begin pushing out the route and acclimatizing. Once the climbing phase is over we will descend to Jomsom for a flight out to Pokhara and then on to Kathmandu.

The itinerary was nice, in that we got to see and experience many different types of climate during the trek, i.e., rainforests to mountain passes to villages.
