“ KUN “ 7077 M LADAKH



Nun Kun Massif dominates the skyline in the upper Suru valley and the twin peaks of Nun (7135m) and Kun (7077m) are the highest in the Zanskar range in Ladakh. The two peaks are separated by a snowy plateau of about 4km in length. Pinnacle Peak (6930m) is the third highest mountain in this group. We aim to climb Kun which was first climbed by Italian mountaineer Mario Piacenza in 1913. It was only after 58 years that the mountain was successfully climbed again by an Indian Army Expedition. The six day trek going over the Kanji La is the best way to get to acclimatise for this high climb.
