Gangkar Punsum, according to traditional sourcres, is 7541 metres, and Kula Kangri is 7554 metres, with both peaks ususally deemed within Bhutan. More recent evidence, i.e., a modern Chinese survey, using topographical dividing lines, as reported by a Japanese source, shows that Kula Kangri is wholly within Tibet(China), and is 7538 metres, whereas Gangkar Punsum is in Bhutan, and is higher, i.e., 7570 metres, and is thus the high point of Bhutan, which, incidentally, has banned all climbing expeditions since 1996, leaving Gangkar Punsum unclimbed as of 2006.
