Located in a disputed territory straddling China and India in the remote Siachen Muztagh mountain range, a subrange of the Karakoram mountains, are the Teram Kangri mountains.

The three peaks of the group from highest to lowest are Teram Kangri I (7,462 m/24,482 ft), Teram Kangri II (7,407 m/24,301 ft), and Teram Kangri III (7,382 m/24,219 ft).

Its neighboring peaks include Apsarasas Kangri I to the northeast, then further Lakshmi Kangri and Padmanabh to the south-southeast of the Teram Kangri Group.

First Ascent: 1978 when an Indian Army expedition led by Colonel Narendra Kumar sought to claim the Siachen Glacier area for India and climbed the peak in an effort to do so.
