Mamostang Kangri is located in Ladakh’s remote Nubra valley, near to the Chinese border. It is the tallest peak in the remote Rimo Mustagh mountain range, which borders Pakistan’s Karakoram Range. The Yarkandi traders who used to travel through this barren terrain, a traditional trading route between India and Central Asia via steep valleys, perilous high mountains, flowing rivers, and severe elevations, dubbed Mamostang “Mountain of Thousand Devils.” Because of its distance and geographical barriers between India and China, it remains unexplored. After all of this, there are dedicated climbers and explorers who have attempted to climb and are eager to discover the lesser-known places of extreme hardship. It was first climbed in 1984 by an Indo-Japanese expedition from the east ridge via Thangman Glacier, and the hunt continues. The enthusiastic mountaineers who have assembled to re-climb the huge peak have brought this barren area to life. It is the most challenging peak since it necessitates the use of multiple ropes and high-end technical equipment to reach the summit. It all begins in Nubra Valley, following the Shyok River and crossing the Saser La to the Aq Tash Glacier, which leads to the 18-kilometer-long Thangman Glacier. The base camp is located at a height of around 5000 metres, surrounded by Thangman Glacier ice pinnacles and a large amount of debree accumulated over the years owing to geological protrusions. The painful moraine will arise at the confluence of nameless Glacier and Thangman after passing the magnificent ice pinnacles. Then, because the severely crevassed snowfield is prone to avalanches and huge cornice break offs, it must be crossed with caution. As we reach the higher snowfield, a series of ice barriers are required to cross the Col between Mamostong Kangri’s east ridge and the upper snowfield. The Mamostong Kangri east ridge is treacherous, with shattered serac barriers, ice walls, and crevasses. The summit ridge of Maostong Kangri is strenuous, and bad weather may cover the mountain in a matter of seconds, drastically reducing visibility. The final ascent before reaching the top is the Mamostong ridge. At such a high height, reaching the summit of a huge peak is a dangerous journey. At 7516 metres, the enormous Depsang Plains, which loom over Aq Tash, are clearly visible, along with distant mountain ranges that are mostly unknown to the rest of the globe. Following the victorious celebrations, cautiously descend to the lower camps. It will require a lot of effort to attain such a once-in-a-lifetime feat. Although Mamostong Kangri is not an insurmountable mountain to scale, it does need the will to overcome circumstances beyond one’s control. So come join us in the Himalayas to experience the genuine essence of mountaineering in the dry but beautiful Himalayas.
