Mamostong Kangri

Mamostong Kangri (Mamostang Kangri, K35)

Mamostong Kangri, also known as K35, stands as the highest peak in the Rimo Muztagh mountain range, which is an isolated subrange of the Karakoram mountain range located in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, India, near the Chinese border. Climbing the mountain is nearly impossible due to the region’s political climate and the mountain’s remoteness.

Chong Kumdan Glacier is located to the north of Mamostong Kangri, and its closest neighboring peaks are Chong Kumdang Ri I and Chong Kumdang Ri II to the north, and Skyampoche Ri I to the southeast.

The Shyok River flows to the east of the Rimo Karakoram mountains, and to the west of them flows the Nubra River. Travel a little over 100 miles southwest of the Rimo Karakoram to find some gorgeous vistas in the glorious Ladakh region.
