Kula Kangri in 1933

Kula Kangri is a 7,538 metres (24,731 ft) mountain in the Himalayas range, in Tibet.[1] It is the 46th highest mountain in the world. The first people to reach the top were Japanese climbers Itani, Sakamoto, Ozaki, and Ohtani, in 1986.[2][3] In the past, it was thought that Kula Kangri was partly in Bhutan. Later surveys show it as only in Tibet.[4]
