The adventure begins with a number of internal flights to reach Sugapa Village, from where an extremely tough trek through the jungle for five days allows the team to access base camp.

The route along the ridge has a difficulty with maximum 4 UIAA or US 5.4. New fixropes installed in summer 2014 make the way to the summit easier.
