Kwangde Peak (6011m) Climbing

kwangde peak

Kwangde peak or Kwangde Ri is situtated in the Lumding Drangka in a high and remote valley bounded to the west by tumbling glaciers of karyolung, Khartang and Numbur at an elevation of 6,187m, which it is rarely visted by the trekkers and climbers. Kwangde Himal is also known as Kwangde Ri, or Kongde Ri. It is impressive with multi-summited ridges on the east of Lumding Himal, to the south-west is Namche Bazar and above Bhote Koshi River. Kwangde Peak is difficult and challenging. The routes on the North Face are particularly difficult and reflect recent developments in lightweight Himalayan climbing, with an emphasis on technical difficulty and a high degree of commitment. The first ascent of Kwangde peak was made by a Japanese Team at 11 November 1978.
