Mt. Nojin Kangsang (7,252m.) Expedition

Noijin Kangsang is the closest major Himalayan peak to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. It belongs to the Lhagoi Kangri belt, a heteroclite juxtaposition of sub-ranges squeezed between the Yarlung Tsangpo (Brahmaputra) river to the north and the High Himalaya to the south, the mountain stands for a malevolent spirit living on the noble snowy mountain. Noijin Kangsang is the highest peak of the massif extending around the Karo La group, to which belongs Kaluxung / Kalurong (6674m), and several other little known snow-capped mountains over 6'000meters, many of them still unclimbed. The massif is conveniently accessed from the Nagartse – Gyantse road near the 5'036m high Karo La pass. The lips of two major glaciers dropping from Kaluxung North Face and Noijin Kangsang South Face reach to within a few hundred meters from the highway. It is located near to the large, scenic Yamdrok Yumtso Lake, one of the main Tibetan holy lakes.

The approach to Noijin Kangsang offers very fine view to the mountain from both the Northeast (approach via Gampa La) and Southwest (approach via Gyantse), but the mountain can also be spotted very briefly from the main road Shigatse-Lhasa along Brahmaputra River near Ringbuk.

Noijin Kangsang was first climbed on 28 April 1986 by Chinese-Tibetan team from the South. Currently, most expeditions ascend it via the East ridge, which does not presents important technical difficulties and objective dangers. Recently, it has gained more attention with a few commercial expeditions attempting its summit each year. However, it remains a very interesting expedition goal for small groups with low budget due to its easy access and uncomplicated logistic requirements.
