Putha Hiunchuli is one of the most impressive peaks of the Dhaulagiri range and also known as Dhaulagiri vii. This peak has an elevation of 7,246 m and lies in the far west of Dhaulagiri range in Dolpo. Putha Hiunchuli offers many possible routes that can be explored. Climbing through the south face is technically challenging, while the north slopes via Dolpo is much easier to climb, all the way up to the summit. It takes less time to reach base camp through the southern slopes, but the ascent route is technically difficult.
