The summit of Jitanzhoma 6028m. Below me lots of smaller summits in the Noijin Kangsang massif. In the background high peaks of the Himalaya. Looking SSE.

Re: Great pic

No, it's Kula Kangri : see here for more explanations. Kangchenjunga is much more on the right (not visible on this picture).

Re: Great pic

I see, thanks - what is it's altitude?

Re: Great pic

Kula Kangri is 7538m and Karjiang is 7221m. The latter is still unclimbed, even if some serious attempts have been made.

Re: Great pic

Hi Corax,

thanks for the information.
I see you have currently access to the www, so I would be very grateful if you could
post about your experiences last week. I guess you have also been expelled from Tibet ... if so, keep your chin up ...

Re: Great pic

I wasn't expelled until a week ago. The mountains were safe from PSB, but when I arrived in civilization, to a normally open city, I let my guard down for a second. Big mistake. They got me and kicked me out. Will go back. Can't give up a good plan.

Later on, when not in such a precarious situation I'll add a lot of info about many climbs from this period.

Splendid view...

The central Himalaya stretch out in the background? What a remarkable Range of peaks. Nope, I don't have the funds to fly there right now! I'm still enjoying the desert, and waiting for my wife to come back from the Philippines. You take care!!!

Re: Splendid view...

Yes, it's the central Himalaya in the background. Thanks for the interest.

Re: If I could only imagine...

Thanks for the comment.
It's really something special to be up there on those high Himalayan peaks and look at the rest of the world far below.
