The route includes a complex glacier approach, high angled snow slopes, and a technical knife-edge ridge, before the final section to the summit. This expedition is meant only for aspiring mountaineers with prior knowledge of the use of ice axes, crampons, roping up procedures and jumar climbing. The extremely unpredictable weather conditions and a challenging terrain encountered while undertaking this expedition demands the aspirant to be extremely physically fit with a high level of mental endurance. Mt. Satopanth serves as a preparatory expedition for many Indian mountaineers who wish to conquer 8000M+ peaks and possibly Mt. Everest.
