MountEverest.net has posted a very cool article on the six highest unclimbed peaks in the world, as well as a few other prominant mountains that haven’t been climbed yet either. A couple of them, such as Kailash in Western Tibet, are considered holy and no climbing permits are issued for them, but there are others on the list that make for intriguing climbs.
For instance, Saser Kangri II East, which is 7518m in height, and is located in the Indian Kashmir region, has never even been attempted. While two of it’s sister summits have been climbed, Saser Kangri II East has not seen a human footprint anywhere near the upper reaches.
Labuche Kang III is part of a group of mountains in Tibet that has seen very little traffic at all. A Japanese team summitted the main peak back in 1987, but this one has remained untouched to this day. It is the fourth highest unclimbed peak in the World.
So if you’re a climber who has “been there and done that” and you’re looking for a new challenge, perhaps this list will inspire you to start plotting a climb. You’ll get to make a first ascent after all! Just avoid the peaks that are marked as holy, and off limits, Somehow I doubt the locals will take too kindly to you planting a flag on top of their sacred mountain.
