Swargarohini Peak

6252 mts

Situated in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand, Swargarohini is a mountain massif in the Bandarpunch range of Garhwal Himalayas. The massif contains a total of four peaks. While not particularly high by Himalayan standards, and not the highest in the Bandarpunch range, Swargarohini I is notable for its dramatic terrain and topography and consists of two peaks: eastern summit and the western summit.


After numerous failed attempts to climb this peak, Swargarohini 1 was first conquered in 1974 when Charles Clarke (England); Dilsher Singh Virk, Peter Fuhrman and Bruce MacKinnon (Canada); and Mohan Singh and Rattan Singh (India) made the first ascent of the west summit of Swargarohini I, ascending from the west side.
