Ulugh Muztagh is a high snow peak in the central Kunlun Shan, near the northern edge of the Tibetan Plateau. It is often incorrectly cited as the highest peak in the Kunlun Shan, due to a survey from the 1890's which gave it a height of 7720 meters. The current value for the height is from a careful modern survey done by the Sino-American first ascent expedition in 1985, and should be accurate to within 10 meters. (See the American Alpine Journal, 1986.) Due to its location, Ulugh Muztagh is easily one of the most remote and inaccessible mountains in the world.
