Although the first ascent was made from Pakistan, the mountain, which has an impressive mixed North side with a prominent central pillar, became a popular climb from the Wakhan Corridor in Afghanistan during the next decade and up to the Soviet invasion of 1979. Since then and in common with many border peaks(Afghanistan-Pakistan) it has received very little attention, though in recent years there have been several expeditions from Pakistan.
The first climbers of this mountain, also climbed neighboring Udren Zom, which is slighly higher. The Hindu Kush have in general better weather than the Himalaya, but are less safe, because of the fact that they are close to a war zone. Although the Wakhan is the only area in Afganistan not under direct influence of the TALIBAN, it can hardly be cosidered safe
