Thanks to John Harris Schwelm FRGS, for adding this peak.

After leading a trek thru Markha valley in 1995 for Cambridge University girls I went back and climbed it following week with the idea of leading a group to ski it in 96. Early morning departure as snow then was laying soft and deep.

Thought it too avalanche prone for commercial adventures

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Kang-Yatze in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.
