Mt. Deo Tibba Expedition
Mt. Deo Tibba is a beautiful 6001m. High peak situated in the Pir Panjal range of mountains in the Manali region of Himachal Pradesh. It is located at Duhangan Nallah and Malana glacier. Deo Tibba consists of an extensive ice cap, the actual climb being a snow hump accessible on the edge of the ice plateau is reached. It also has the beauty of being just over the 6000 m. high mark which is a great achievement for any climber. According to the Hindu religion Deo Tibba is the assembly site of the Gods, where Indra the lord of all Gods and also the God of war and weather carries out a meeting from his throne. As to the mythology the Gods sit on top of the dome shaped peak. Mt. Deo Tibba expedition is suitable for professional trekkers and climbers who have ample knowledge of snow, ice and mountaineering techniques.
The road head for the trek to base is Jagatsukh village just 6 kms far from Manali. From jagatsukh to khanol by taxi and then trek starts stopping at chhika in an hour. After chhika we hike up leaving tree line behind till Pandu ropa. After Pandu ropa we reach seri in 4-5 hours. Seri is a huge pasture ground surrounded by the peaks. Seri to tenta is about 3-4 hours. It is a 3 or 4 day approach walk to base camp depending on where base camp is established. One possibility for base camp is located near a glacier lake called "Chandra Tal" close to the main glacier that falls off the south-east face of Deo Tibba. This is at an altitude of 4500m/14850ft. It is quite a high base camp and depending on the rate of acclimatization, the base camp may be set lower at around 4070m/13430ft. This will mean the camp at the Col that is spoken about below becomes Camp II with Camp I at 4500m/14850ft. Moving on to Camp One at Duangan Col (Duangan Pass) the route crosses the Deo Tibba Glacier takes a steep slope of between 45 and 55 degrees for around 300 m. The climbing is mixed on snow, rock and ice to cover this portion of the climb to the Col (pass). For safe travel ropes will need to be fixed for most of this section. After reaching Duhangan Col. Camp One can be set at the Col, or a little further on at the base of some more technical ground known as the Pitton Ridge. The Col is generally preferred but also depends on the general conditions at the time.
Many climbers make a direct ascent from this high camp to the summit via the Pitton Ridge which faces east. The ridge is quite steep and again requires fixed rope for safe travel for around 150 m. Soon after climbing the rock of the Pitton Ridge you move onto the snow field. From this point on, Deo Tibba and its neighbour Indrasan are visible. For climbers moving at a good pace it is only an additional 2 hours from this point onwards following the left side of the upper glacier. Because of Deo Tibba's giant snow dome covering it, is a relatively easy final ascent with few crevasses to negotiate. The slope steepens to around 50 degrees just below the summit for about 50 m. The summit itself is quite a wide expanse able to accommodate all climbers. After summit get back to the camp II, camp I and to base camp. Next day descend back to Chhika. Camp for a night. Reach Khanool in an hour, drive to Jagatsukh or to Manali by taxi.
