Putha Hiunchuli Expedition Tentative Itinerary

A Note on Dates: The actual ending date is flexible, depending on weather and conditions. We have a number of contingency days built into the itinerary, but normally climbers will change their international departure flights when they know exactly when the expedition is going to end. We recommend adding several contingency days to this itinerary below in case we must wait for weather or conditions.
