Saser Kangri II East
Saser Kangri II East saw its first ascent in 2011, partly due to its extreme difficulty, but also due to the fact that it (and much of the eastern Karakoram mountains) was closed off to climbers until 2010 because of the India-Pakistan border conflict.
Saser Kangri II is located south of Saser Kangri III, Chamshen Kangri, and Chhushku Kangri I, all in the Jammu and Kashmir region in the northernmost state of India. It is directly northwest of the Sha cho guest House.
Mountain Range: Saser Karakoram
Elevation: 24,649 feet / 7,513 meters
First Ascent: August 24, 2011 by Mark Richey, Steve Swenson, and Freddie Wilkinson, starting the climb from the South Shukpa Kunchang Glacier.
Fun Fact: Saser Kangri II E is the 48th highest mountain in the world.
