Mount Kun Expedition ( 7,077 M)

Package Description

The Nun Kun mountain massif comprises a pair of Himalayan peaks: Nun, 7,135 m (23,409 ft) and its neighbor peak Kun, 7,077 m (23,218ft).The massif is located near the Suru valley, about 250 km (160 mi) east of Srinagar, the state capital.
Kun is located north of Nun and is separated from it by a snowy plateau of about 4 km (2.5 mi) in length. Pinnacle Peak, 6,930 m (22,736 ft), is the third highest summit of the group. Italian mountaineer Mario Piacenza made the first ascent of Kun in 1913, via the north-east ridge. Fifty-eight years passed before the second recorded attempt on the peak, which resulted in a successful ascent by an expedition from the Indian Army.

The peak has been judged safe enough to climb for teams by expedition companies.

SINCE 1980 Shikhar Travels has been handling Mountaineering Expeditions and as on date we have successfully handled 29 Expeditions to Mt Nun & Mt Kun collectively. With every passing year Shikhar Travels is becoming an expert and reliable partner for Himalayan Mountaineers by catering not just logistic needs but also providing expert advices of our Expedition Guides who have themselves made it to the summit of several Himalayan Peaks and climbing assistance till the summit by our highly experienced High Altitude PORTERS & SHERPAS.

The First Expedition to Mount Kun was organized by Shikhar Travels in 1980. Since then Shikhar has successfully managed and organized 29 expeditions collectively to Mount Nun & Mount Kun. These two towering peaks and their satellites; Barmal, White Needle and Pinnacle Peak form a horseshoe above the Suru river on the boarder of Kashmir and Zanskar. The route to Base Camp at the head of the Shafat glacier is at 4400m and accessible in a matter of days. The ascent is a moderate snow and ice route suitable for those with previous climbing experience of strenuous grade or Alpine AD.
