Area:Karpo Kangri and other Peaks
Team :Indian (Himalayan Club, Mumbai Section) & American expedition
Leader:Divyesh Muni and Don Goodman
This expedition was to the Lung Tung glacier near Satti village. Base camp was established near a place called Spangchenmo at an altitude of 5150 m. During the expedition, the team established two more high camps at 5540 m and 5920 m respectively. From these camps, members reached summits of Karpo Kangri (6535 m), Gjungma Kangri (6287 m), Rdung Ring (6082 m), Bukbuk (6289 m). and Thongsa Ri (5889 m) between 19th August and 24th August 2005.
Two camps were established at 4720 m, 5030 m and 5485 m. The final summit camp was set up at 5790 m. This rapid movement was possible due to the three clear days and also because of the fitness of the young members.
The team then returned by the Koyak glacier route to reach the Rongdo valley by crossing the Koyak pass (5840 m). This was the first known crossing of this high glacial pass joining Satti and Rongdo valleys.
