Singekang Valley

Although adjacent to the Spiti River Highway, the Singekang Valley appeared to be unvisited by western travellers until this team arrived. Their exploration identified a number of accessible peaks and a potential crossing towards the east at the head of the valley. They had hoped to make the first ascent of Singekang (6031m) via its West Ridge, but were stopped 400m below the top by unconsolidated snow, low temperatures and steep ice towers. However, they did make the first ascent of Snaght Kang (5500m) whose summit lies at the end of the north ridge of Peak 6,091m on the southern rim of the valley.
