Labgeyekung Feng Mountain
A mountain range stretches north in the middle section of the Himalayas between Xixabangma Feng and Qowowayag Feng. Generally called Labgyekung Shan, it acts as the boundary of Nyalam County and Tingri County in Tibet. In the mountain, three peaks at an altitude of more than 7000 meters stand in row from the east to the west. They are named Labgyekung Feng, the main peak of which, with an altitude of 7367, lies in between the two other peaks at 86030′E and 28030′N. Three kilometers to its west tests the West Peak of 7072 meters while 4 kilometers to its east the East Peak at an altitude of 7094 meters. Framed with 4 long mountain ridges in the east, west, south and north, respec-tively, the three peaks are chained to one another. As a lot of snowy peaks are chained to one another. As a lot of snowy peaks clus-ter around them, ice and snow slopes, glaciers and serac forests are interspersed with the three peaks.
Lots of alpine glacier lakes dot Labgyekang Feng, the rather greater being Co Langma at the north foot In addition to the occasional snow and ice avalanches and cracks, the vile climate stands in the way of the mountaineers. The best timing in spring for mountain climbing is in April and May while in autumn Oc-tober and November.
On October 26 and 27, 1987, a Sino-Japan Allied Team of 15 moun-taineers, for the first time in human history, reached the summit in two batches from the northwest slope. Wangjia and the other 7 persons, two of whom were wom-en, are Chinese while Tamichinaoru and his 6 companions are Japanese.
