Thanks to Mark Mangles for adding this peak.
This mushroom-shaped mountain is situated in the Langtang region of Nepal. It is surrounded by majestic peaks such as Langtang II, Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lapka and Shisapangma in Tibet. The difficulty of the climb is probably PD+ and even though it is not surrounded by the massive 8,000m-ers, the views from the summit are spectacular. On the way from Langtang to Kyangjin, you will see a perfectly shaped snowy peak, which is situated slightly south of Naya Kanga (5,844m). From the southeast the summit appears like a snowy cone, with a perfect ridge to be climbed on its southeast side.
NOTE: Trip reports were previously called "Summit Logs" - same feature, new name
