Noijinkangsang Feng Mountain

To the south of the Yarlung Zangbo River and the north of the Himalayas, a mountain range, called by the Tibetan people “Lhagoi Kangri Shan”, streches more than 360 kilometers. As for its geographical structure, it belongs to the exis of the folding anticlinorium in the Cenozoic Era and is formed as a result of the swell of the clustering vaults and short anticiline. The pit of mountain range is made up of gneiss and migmatite. The Yarlung Zangbo River Valley area sits to its north while to the south is the lake basin area of synclinorium structure.

Situated to the east of Lhagoi Kangri Shan, the Yamzhog Yumco Lake, meaning “Swan Lake”, is a plateau lake of 4200 meters in height with a total area of 6400 square kilometers. The winding trough looks long and narrow. Just like a swine which tries to stretch its wings to soar to great height. It is honored by the Tibetan people as “a holy lake”. A legend has it that a fairy was relegat-ed here by God as a swine merely because she has violated the rules of heaven by coming down to earth for a worldly life. The fairies of all the other peaks, how-ever, wre reluctant to part with her and often came here to bath together with her. Noe, thrtr str no longer any fairies bathing here but plenty of naked carps in the lake, groups of water ducks in summer and, most of all, the fine legend. With a history of thousands of years, Sangdin Monastery, one branch of Bka’-brgyud-pa (the White Sect of Lamaism) lies to the south of the “holy lake”. It happens to be the only presiding temple of Dojipamu, the only living woman Buddha in Tibet.

Noijinkangsang Feng, the main peak of Lhagoi Kangri Shan, leisurely overrides “the holy lake” and the “ancestral temple”. Consequently the Tibetan people name it “Noijinkangsang”, which stands for “Yaksha (a malevolent spirit ) living on the noble snowy mountain”. At 7191 me-ters above sea level, it is situated at 90.1 0E and 28.9 0N, where the Counties of Gyangze and Nagarze have their common boundry. As one of the four great snowy mountains, it is surrounded by some 10 towering peaks at over 6000 meters.

With the majestic peak sides and rocks, the cone-shaped top of Noijinkangsang Feng towers loftily while the perennial snow among the ridges and ravines gives birth to lots of glaciers and brings about frequent snow collapse. For this reason, only in April, May, Septem-ber and October can mountaineering activities take place.

On April 28, 1986, China’s Tibetan Mountaineer-ing Team of 12 persons, including Sangzu, Gabu, negotiated the south slope of the peak and made the first successful ascent of the summit along the southwest ridge.

The route to the mountain: From Lhasa, drive a-long the Sino-Neghway and pass Nagarze to get Kara Pass. It totals 187 kilometers. The base camp lies at one end of Kara Glaciers of 5000 meters above sea level, that is, the south foot of the main peak.
