UT Ladakh Kangri Expedition 6070M, 2023
The UT Ladakh Kangri peak is a newly explored prominent snow-capped peak in the upper valley of Rumtse village. This peak was explored and successfully scaled by the local mountaineers of Ladakh Mountain Guides Association (LMGA) and is accessible for enthusiast mountaineers since 2019.
Recently it was successfully completed by First French, European group in May 2022. The 6 individuals with varied trekking experience and personal backgrounds were teamed up by GoClimbUp for an 8 days expedition to a newly discovered peak “UT Kangri” in eastern Ladakh.
Even the name is very uncertain. While we are calling it UT named after Ladakh being a new Union Territory, the locals are also calling it “Yukti Kangri” meaning “highest seat of the priest”.
There are many peaks around this range but the newly explored UT kangri is the best for those who are new to mountaineering and planning to do 6,000 meters peak at the beginning. The prominent UT Kangri peak is 6,070 meters high and a view from the top is stunning. You will get a beautiful view of different ranges of mountains and peaks like Markha valley and the eastern Karakoram ranges.
