Yuzhu Feng is located about 10km E from the Kun Lun pass and 160km from Golmud. With the hight of 20269ft/6178m it is the highes peak in this region; the eastern part of the long Kun Lun range. There are many+ 5000m/+16500ft peaks around it. This area receives only 200mm precipitation per year, but above 5000m, this can be three times as much (like for example in the Hindu Kush) This peak is a perfect introduction for a first climb over 20.000ft/6.000m. the south side of the mountain has the easy approach, whereas the N side is more complex with ice slopes/glaciers and crevasses.
