Climbers on the summit of Nun during our 2015 successful expedition.
༄ We return to the Nun-Kun massif for our sixth expedition to climb Nun (7135m). We approach Nun via Ladakh, spending the first week trekking and climbing in the picturesque Ladakh range as a warm-up. The climbing route on Nun is relatively free from objective hazard with the right climbing program. The weather in the region has certainly beaten the patterns of Nepal over the past three years. We are reacting to these patterns, and shifting to areas that have had better weather over the past three seasons.
Nun is an excellent segue way into soma online pharmacy 8000 meter peaks or as a singular objective. Come and test yourself on a Himalayan giant surrounded by spectacular wilderness.
