We are glad to announce that INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF ADVENTURE SPORTS (ISAS) is all set to go for Mt.Trishul I which is 7120 meters.
Trishul is a group of three Himalayan mountain peaks of western Kumaun, with the highest (Trisul I) reaching 7120m. The three peaks resemble a trident - in Hindi/Sanskrit, Trishul, trident, is the weapon of Shiva. The Trishul group forms the southeast corner of the ring of peaks enclosing the Nanda Devi Sanctuary, about 15 kilometres (9 mi) west-southwest of Nanda Devi itself. The main peak, Trisul I, was the first peak over 7,000 m (22,970 ft) to have ever been climbed, in 1907.
Trishul I (7120 M)
T. G. Longstaff made the first climbing reconnaissance of Trishul, in September 1905, focusing on the western and southern sides. He returned in 1907 with two other Britons, three Alpine guides, and a number of Gurkhas. They ascended through the Rishiganga valley, to the north of the peak, onto the Trishul Glacier, which lies on the east side. From there they climbed the northeast flank to the north ridge, reaching the summit on June 12.
Early expeditions to the peak had problems due to fearful porters, who refused to climb the mountain, as they considered it sacred.
Routes on the west face and south ridge of Trishul I have also been climbed. The west face was first ascended in 1976; this was the first ascent of the main summit not using the first-ascent route.
