Friendship Peak Expedition in Himachal 

Mount Friendship, also known as Friendship Peak, is a mountain peak in Himachal Pradesh, India, located in the Beas Kund area of the Pir Panjal range. It is known for its hard ascent and panoramic views of the Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar peaks, standing at an altitude of 5287 m (17353 ft.) above sea level. The trek, which extends to the friendship peak, encourages aspiring mountaineers and those looking for a challenging trail to enjoy the tranquility and grandeur of the Pir Panjal range. The road winds through the lovely Solang valley, which itself is thickly forested with a variety of alpine tree species, alongside numerous lavish streams leading to upland pastures, before climbing to the frozen surface with extensive tilts and crevasses. The view from the top is stunning, with snow-capped mountain ranges and endless vistas.
