Approaching from the SE side of the mountain is by far the easiest. There are many hidden dangers on the NW side such as snakes, drop bears and even tigers from spring through to autumn.

Latest submitted climbing notes
In 2018 there was a solo Noshaq climb by Łukasz Kocewiak from Afghan side as well as the first Afghan woman, Hanifa Yousoufi, to ascend.
Due to the varied nature of the expedition, it is difficult to place it in one category. Several characteristic aspects are the following:
- a lonely journey through Central Asia, i.e. Tajikistan and Afghanistan;
- traveling through a war-torn country in the immediate vicinity of an armed conflict;
- the cultural and anthropological character of the expedition, that is to know the unique Wakhi people culture;
- climbing part (estimated M4), i.e. an area requiring the use of technical ice axes at the altitude of 6800 m;
- organization of a high-mountain expedition from scratch in an area without infrastructure and agency support;
- practically three weeks alone in the Afghan Hindu Kush and ascent to the highest peak of Afghanistan, which is 7492 m high.
Mount Bachelor is an awesome climbing experience and really isn't that difficult. There is a very nice trail that is easy to follow that goes all the way to the summit. Along the way up, the trail goes up and then crosses over horizontally several times to give your legs a nice rest.
On the last leg of the route not far from the summit, you will travel through a bunch of scattered rocks, but the trail carves through these piles for the most part and the route is very well marked. Pay attention as there are spots where the ground can collapse inward due to very loose volcanic debris. I broke the ground loose with my pole and filled the hole with rocks. It only took my friend and I about three hours to reach the summit.
If you've never climbed before, I highly recommend giving Mount Bachelor a try. The view is amazing at the summit. You won't be disappointed.
