When the pilgrimage to the main peak of Kailash (in Tibet) was stopped, it was this peak in eastern Kumaun that drew faithfuls. It is situated at head of the Kuthi valley in eastern-most Kumaun. The seven-member British team established base camp on 21st September 2006 ahead of the Kuthi village.
They climbed the peak from its northeastern ridge after establishing two high camps at 4450 m and 5450 m respectively. The leader, with Martin Welch, James Gibb, Mike Freeman, Stephan Rink, John Venier and Mangal Singh reached summit on 30th September at 8.45 a.m.
