Anyone who has been up to Manali would not have missed the views of the Friendship looming over the Northern sky. Manali, being a popular location for the hindi film shoots, the peak is seen as a backdrop in a lot of Bollywood films. The name was given by the Indo French expedition which first climbed this highest point on the Shiti Dhar ridge.The peak offers great climbing at not so high altitude.
An easy climb up to the col of the south ridge which is very sharp and exposed. To the right it drops precariously to the valleys of Lahaul and on the left is the steep slope leading to the huge crevasses of the Friendship Glacier. A perfect objective for mountaineers looking for challenging trekking peaks.
