FAQs

Mount Gyajikang Expedition Climbing is the best in Autumn September to November would be best suitable time for Gyajikang Expedition and Second preferable Season will be spring end of March to till end of May best choice in two different seasons in doing  an adventure of Gyajikang expedition in Nar Phu region.
Mr. Pierre is the first successful climber from Himalayan Magic Treks we should tell you the truth for the any expedition in the mountains you must feel good and positive way also another point you should have enough time to climbing during expedition period because of Bad weather, insufficient crew there will be a part of unsuccessful point so do not look cheaper organization and short period of time could be happen anything in the mountains so you must be prepared every step of adventure our team will lead to complete your dream come true.

Mount Gyajikang Expedition in winter (December to February)
Winter is definitely for the more experienced trekker. The weather is unpredictable, and trails can change in hours due to snow. The sky will most likely be clear, and the scenery changes daily as snow drifts in.  On the positive side, fewer trekkers will be on the trail and lodges.  But if this is for you, let’s discuss the possibilities as lodges often close for the winter as locals go down to lower altitudes to wait out the cold so honestly inform you everyone winter is impossible for high mountains above 7000 meters climb because of high risk so choose the best time of the year Autumn for Gyajikang Expedition recommendable.
