Beyond 6000 Meters - Climbing Above The Usual

Climbing beyond 6000 meters is thrill and a love which is beyond your capacity to reason it out to most of your beloved people surrounding you. In the Himalayas, we are lucky as it lets us climb as high as 6000 meter with almost no mountaineering techniques or just some basic techniques which involves learning to use few basic equipment like handling rope, zumars, ice axes, etc. which can be trained on the trek itself, to learn how to use them. That not only gives you a deep insight into the World of Mountaineering but also inspires you to take on the 6000 meter peaks with all the positive spirits, work harder, motivate yourself and then take it even further higher to live in a different world - a World which is above the usual..

However, climbing beyond 6000 meters is a definite challenge, and we at Himalayan High are keen to take you higher. The challenge comes in form of mental stamina, tolerating extreme weather conditions, cold, hot, wind and the most important of them all - The Extremely High Altitude.

Here the air is very thin and a human body does not acclimatize beyond it and all your acclimatization effort and bodily capacities get tested. Its your physical stamina and more than important - your mental toughness which sails you through. Its more of a love for yourself than for the mountain, that you take yourself higher enough to feel the ecstacy and joy of your success. As it is famously said by Sir Edmund Hillary - Its not the mountain you conquer, but yourself. 

In short, going beyond 6000 meter tests YOUR CHARACTER. There is a Himalayan High at 6000 meter and above. Lets feel it.

 


 

Can Beginners Climb It ?

We are not a believer of the usual. We do not think that you need huge experience to take on a 6000 Meter Peak. We are rather a believer that you make your experience, and your experience makes you in return.

That does not mean we undermine the important difficulties of climbing a 6000 meter peak as a beginner. Rather, we mean that you analyze the risks, study the demands of the challenging peak, check what you have and what you lack, prepare yourself hard and then take it on, under the guidance of experienced climbers and leaders. We believe that everyone is born with different thought process and mental capacities. We put our energy and efforts towards motivating the correct spirit of a mountain challenge and develop high quality of trekkers in our country, rather than discriminate on the basis of experience and take egoistic pride on the same difference that we create.

That being said, we also say, that mountains are no place for people without rational thinking, logical reasoning, being concerned about the safety of self and safety of others, having a human heart and most importantly, having a mind that always tries to learn new things, accept the challenges and does not succumb to the mammoth task of solving a problem but actually plan and make a strategy to solve it, work towards that plan, does not give up despite failures and have the zeal to constantly better oneself, not just as a mountaineer, but as a better human being. Thats's what the mighty Himalayas have taught us throughout. 

To know more about our reasoning and what are the exact difficulties of a 6000 meter peak, how to overcome and prepare for it, we have taken the example of Stok Kangri to explain in the below blog. You may read it for yourself and if you have questions, do connect with one of our mentors for assistance.
