A stunningly beautiful peak, Gulha Kangri sits on the Tibet / Bhutan border. From Lhasa the approach to the peak takes two days. We will travel through the region of Lhodak, a stronghold of Tibetan Buddhist culture. The mountain is considered holy, and is a pilgrimage destination for Tibetans. Gulha Kangri is surrounded by a series of 6-7,000 meter peaks all of which remain unclimbed. The peak was the first climbed by Japanese in 1986 via the NW ridge. Gulha Kangri offers many possibilities for new routes.
