Team: Indian (Bengal)
Leader: Arupam Das
A team of eight members from Bengal attempted this subsidiary peak of Mana in Central Garhwal. The peak is situated near Kamet. The members after establishing camp reached 6900m on 21st June following through Purvi Kamet glacier.
The team members feel that the height of Mana Northwest is not 7092 m as traditionally believed, but actually it is around 6900 m or in the vicinity of the point that they have reached. They also write in their report that the claim of climb of Mana Northwest by the Indo-Japanese team in 1995 needs to be looked into in view of the change in height and the route.
