Tamasa Nala

Exploration of the upper reaches of the Korlomshe Tokpo, a valley to the west of the Tamasa Nala which flows south of Padam in Zanskar, and first ascents of one or more peaks. From Padam they first established a base camp at 4153m, and then an advanced base at 5135m. From here they explored the lower reaches of the Korlomshe Glacier and climbed Peak 5916 via its glacial SE ridge at Alpine grade AD. After exploring the upper glacier they set up a further camp at 5500m, from which they attempted a ‘Matterhorn- like’ peak at the head of the valley, but retreated after running out of time. Two members of the expedition climbed Peak 5947 via the ENE Face and SE ridge at Alpine AD. They enjoyed good weather conditions throughout the expedition.
