However mount Nanda devi  east can be climb with special permission from authorized government bodies which will take around 3 - 4 months. This peak is lies in a very famous park named Nanda devi national park. 

Known as the “Veil of Goddess Nanda Devi”, Mt. Nanda Ghunti is a prominent peak of the Nanda Devi National Park in the Garhwal Himalayas near the famous Roopkund Lake.

Though not technically difficult, Mt Nanda Ghunti is infamous for its crevasses between the summit camp and the summit along with its notorious and unpredictable weather conditions and extremely windy summit camp due to its location on the ridge and owing to its close proximity to the mighty Nanda Devi Peak which creates its own weather systems. Due to these factors, the expedition has a very short summit window.

This exciting mountaineering expedition is a hardcore climbing experience.
