Unnamed Peak and Unknown Shrubs
Unnamed Peak (that's its name on many maps) and unknown shrubs at Panch Pokhari in the Hongu Valley. November, 2002, elevation a bit above 17,000' (~5,200m)

I have been asked to identify the shrubs. I have no idea what they are. If any SP member knows, please drop me a note. Thanks.

I have the Random House book of Shrubs (non- political) by Roger Phillips & Martyn Rix-it has 1900+, but I bet it does not have these red ones at 17k

Thanks for looking in your book. The person who asked me thinks she knows what they are, but was hoping for confirmation. Didn't see any white tail dear up there, but leopard tracks were nearby!

Nice shot! I can't help you with the red shrubs, but I might have a clue about the yellow one in the distance.. :-)

The yellow ones were very interesting. They always seemed to be located a days march apart! Good eye. :-}

Beautiful work Nelson -

I have a couple of pictures that I wanted to upload of this peak, but I'm not sure where to put them. Not having climbed the peak, and not being able to find any useful information on it, I don't think I'm qualified to make a page for it. What are your thoughts?

Thanks much, glad you like the shot.

Regarding a page for this peak, in general the SP rule is if you haven't climbed it then don't submit. There may be exceptions for important mountains, but even that can spark strong debate. For a peak like this I'd say best not to submit. (I do have the Kangchenjunga page, which I have no intention of climbing, but a major peak like that seems to get some leeway, although there are folks who think it shouldn't be here)

I do have plans to submit a very minor Himalayan peak soon, but at least I did climb the thing.

If you want to submit photos then the Mera Page, Island Peak, or Ama Dablam could all be OK.

Thanks again.
