Panchchuli Peaks

Panchchuli - literally meaning five stoves - is believed to be the place where the Pandavas cooked their last meal on the way to heaven. Standing at an altitude of 6,904 meters, it forms a barrier between Darma and Gauri Valleys. After several failed expeditions, a team of Indo-Tibetan Border Police took the west Gauri Valley route and climbed up these peaks in 1974.
