SASER KANGRI I
In the rugged embrace of Ladakh’s Nubra valley, where the sun-kissed peaks of the eastern Karakoram range pierce the heavens, lies an awe-inspiring group of mountains known as Saser Kangri. The very name, whispered through the local lore of Ladakh, evokes the image of a majestic Yellow Peak, where Saser signifies the vibrant hue of yellow, and Kangri symbolizes the pure, snow-covered crowns of these lofty summits.
Within this cluster of sublime grandeur, five resplendent summits stand tall, each a testament to natur’s grand design. First, there is the regal Saser Kangri-I, soaring proudly at an elevation of 7672 meters. Following closely behind is the formidable Saser Kangri-II,
reaching an imposing height of 7518 meters. The enigmatic Saser Kangri-III, veiled in mystique, stands resolute at 7495 meters. Further still, we find the noble Saser Kangri-IV, its peak piercing the heavens at 7416 meters. And last but not least, the plateau-like summit, simply known as Plateau, gracing the sky at a remarkable 7287 meters.
This extraordinary cluster of peaks has long enticed the hearts of intrepid mountaineers. It is a realm where challenges test the very limits of human ability, and where the spirit of exploration flourishes. In 1973, a momentous achievement marked the successful ascent of
Saser Kangri, etching a milestone in mountaineering history, for it stands as one of the most technically demanding peaks to conquer in India.
Among the group, Saser Kangri-II, with its lofty height and elusive allure, stood unconquered for years, guarding its summit from human footsteps. Until 2012, it held the title of being
the second highest unclimbed peak on Earth, captivating the imagination of climbers far and wide. The guardianship of these awe-inspiring heights is diligently observed by the Indian
Mountaineering Foundation and the Ministry of Home Affairs. To protect the pristine beauty and ecological balance of the region, they permit joint expeditions to partake in the exhilarating quest for these summits. Such an exclusive opportunity is granted only to those who approach with respect, reverence, and a commitment to preserve the untouched wilderness.
Saser Kangri and its surrounding peaks beckon those with a yearning for adventure,
challenging them to conquer the unconquered, and reminding all who dare to venture that nature’s beauty must be cherished and safeguarded. In this majestic realm of snow and stone, the dreams of climbers intertwine with the soul of the mountains, creating an eternal bond that echoes across the ages.
