Tirsuli & Tirsuli West Peaks

Situated in the Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand, Tirsuli is a peak that reaches a staggering altitude of 7,074 meters. Along with Hardeol, Dunagiri and Changabang peaks, it makes up the northeast wall of Nanda Devi sanctuary. This peak should not be confused with nearby Trisul, which is on the southwest side of the Sanctuary.

Serious attempts to climb this peak started in 1939 however, Tirsuli remain unclimbed for decades. The peak was scaled for the first time on 9 October 1966 by Indian team led by Chanchal Kumar Mitra and organized for the second time by Himalayan Association of Calcutta. The expedition team ascended via east face of south-east ridge.



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