Mount Gongga (simplified Chinese: 贡嘎山; traditional Chinese: 貢嘎山; pinyin: Gònggá shān), also known as Minya Konka, is the highest mountain in Sichuan, China. There have been a number of deaths on Gongga Shan, which has made some people think that Mount Gongga is a difficult and dangerous mountain for climbing. In 1981, eight Japanese climbers died after a hiking all the way to the top.[1]
