Nun Kun Expedition (7,077m. - 23 Days

Nun Kun mountain massif consists of a pair of Himalayan peaks: Nun, 7,135m and its neighbor peak Kun Peak, 7,077m. Nun is the highest peak in the part of the Himalayan range which lies on the Indian side of the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

The massif is located near the Suru valley which is about 250 km to the east of Srinagar; the state capital. The Nun Kun massif is bounded to the north by the Suru valley and the Zanskar range. To the South lie the Kishtwar National Park and the Krash Nai River. While to the southwest and to the south lie a maze of glaciers, peaks and rivers giving access to Kashmir, Kishtwar and Doda regions of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. The area is rich in minerals especially garnets.

Kun Peak is located to the north of Nun. It is separated by a snowy plateau of about 4 km length. Pinnacle Peak, 6,930m 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
