Panchchuli Peaks
About Panchchuli Peaks

The Panchchuli peaks are a group of five snow-capped Himalayan peaks lying at the end of the eastern Kumaon region, near Munsiyari, in Pithoragarh district, Uttarakhand state, India. The peaks have altitudes ranging from 6,334 metres (20,781 ft) to 6,904 metres (22,651 ft). They form the watershed between the Darmaganga and the Gori valleys. Panchchuli is also located on the Gori Ganga-Lassar Yankti divide. The group lies about 138 km from Pithoragarh.

The five peaks on the Panchchuli massif are numbered from northwest to southeast. The highest peak is Panchchuli II, which was first scaled by an Indo-Tibetan Border Police expedition which was led by Mahendra Singh, on 26 May 1973. The group's name is derived the legendary Pandavas's "Five Chulis" , where they cooked their last meal before proceeding toward their wonderful abode.
