Featured photo of Karyolung

Karyolung is a rarely visited but relatively accesible mountain. It is situated just south of Sagarmatha NP and is the southern most peak of the Rolwaling Himal. To the NW two of the highest Rolwaling summits rise: Numbur and Khatang. the mountain was first climbed in the fall of 1982 by a Japanese-Nepalese team via the moderately angled but highly contored NE Face, rising straight out of the uninhabited Lumding valley. a month or two later a second Japanese-Nepalese expedition climbed the same face and made the first winter ascent of the mountain on 24 December. Since then there have only been 1 or two ascents, and no success
