Hardeol Peak

Considered one of the major peaks in the Kumaon Himalayas, Hardeol is the highest peak on the northern side of the ring of peaks guarding the Nanda Devi Sanctuary. It is situated at the northern end of the Milam valley, in the Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand. It is also known as 'Trishuli South' or 'Temple of the God'.

After a few serious attempts starting in 1967, the first ascent of Hardeol was made by a team from the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) on 31 May 1978, led by S. P. Mulasi, climbing from the ridge connecting the peak to Trishuli.



The nearest place which is accessible through motorable road is Munsiyari. This place is starting point of many treks into the Kumaon Himalayas.
