            Langutai-Barfi [7017m]  unclimbed…Roshgol valley

 

Called the ‘ bride of the Hindukush’ lies at the end f Roshgol valley, Chitral. It is at 2 day trek from jeep road[ and this is a very plus point of Roshgol peaks] with one night at Duru camp under  birch trees and an ice cold spring.

This peak has never been climbed from the Roshgol  [south] face because much higher peaks of  the Roshgol amphitheatre downsize its height. Its south face is also fit for snow boarding over its 1500m gradient on the south face, just like the south face of Mt. Saraghrar  where a climber of  2005 Swiss Expedition  did snow boarding from 6400m down to 4500m. .Langutai –Barfi’s wide east face has rock steps at convenient and safe grades to ascend  to its east shoulder at 6500m [ also the upper limit for trekking under the mountaineering / trekking rules of the Ministry of Tourism, Govt. of  Pakistan.]  Chitral is one of the most peaceful regions of Pakistan and adventure tour to this peak or any other in this section of High Hindu Kush will be  a pleasant experience. Local guides, high altitude porters/low high altitude porters are available at very reasonable rate. A very good destination for medium size expeditions.
