A ski descent of this peak is documented in the film "Skiing Everest" and a link might make a good addition to this page.
Thanks. I'll add the link to the page.
Thanks Miki. I have removed the link now as it seems like the page is gone.
Shame. It would have been nice to check out some pics of the East ridge.
In his trip report, cho_mik writes about "illegal walkie-talkies". Are they still / Why were they illegal on the mountain?
I don't know. The rules are changing there so quickly, but I don't think it's a problem regardless of the rules. No one checks.
According to my research, the main Mustagh Ata SummitPost page has some outdated information on KMA. As I understand it, KMA used to be a governmental organization operating under the name of Kashgar Mountaineering Association (see the Mustagh Ata main page). Now, that Association no longer exists, and companies individually apply for permits from the Chinese government. Keyoum, who used to work for Kashgar Mountaineering Association, opened the Kashgar Mountaineering Adventures company after the original KMA became defunct.
More information about ascention to Mustagh-Ata Peak is available on this link:
Thanks for letting me know. The location was really off. I put the official coordinates now.
