Thanks to Harish Rawat for adding this peak.

This 'Fort of Nanda' is an imposing peak dividing the Gori and Pindari valleys. Dr. Longstaff in 1905 and 1936 the Japanese made the first ascent on it. An Indian team in 1956 climbed it again. In 1986 the Indo Japanese made another ascent to celebrate the fifty years of their first ascent.

The best par about this peak is that it is always visible to you from all routes in kumaon from 1700 m onwards which makes the travelling even more exciting in this region.
