Gulha Kangri Mountain

Lying at 90.6 0E and 28.2 0N, Gulha Kangri towers on the main ridge line of the middle section of the Himalayas. Rising 7536 meters above sea level, it has 6 nergboring peaks of over 7000 meters in Lhozhag of the Tibet Autonomous Region. To its southeast stand Gulha Kangri II Feng (7548 meters above sea level) and Gul-ha Kangri III Feng (7384 meters) while to the northeast are the 7221-meter-high Karejiang I Feng and the 7216-meter Karejiang II Feng and the 7018-meter Karejiang III Feng. Viewed in the distance, the group of peaks stand by each other, just like a gigantic pretective screen of snow. Bedrocks and precipices are towering like a wall and rising steeply while four glaciers are lying across the valley, with two as long as 10 kilometers on the north side. Radiantly grand forests of ice towers are displayed while, snow walls, ice slopes and frequently snow and ice avalanches takes place one after another with its constant and soul-stirring thundering. At the north foot of the mountain rests the open valley running east in Lhozhag Xongqu; in the north of the valley the haughty posture of the Yamzho Yumco snow wall can be seen resting still in the vast South Tibet.

While everything on the north slope is still in the sound midwinter sleep, the warm current from the Indian Ocean is going up along the valley, revealing in the south of the river valley another world of red fruits, green trees and colorful butterflies flying fast here and there.

With the harsh climate, low temperature and the sharp difference in temperature of a single day, strong force 7-8 wind frequents. Therefore, the best time for mountaineering activities is generally between April and May or in the months of September-October each year.

On April 21, 1986, Japan’s Mountaineering Team of “Tibetan Study” of Kobe University ascented the mysterious virgin peak on the west slope, crossing the northwest ridge.

The route line leading to the mountain: It takes a total of 260-kilometer-drive to start from Lhasa and to pass Nagarze to reach the mountaineering base camp site in Moinda. It is located in the ice-accumalated fan of 4490 meters in height, which is at the north foot of Gulha Kangri.
