Mt. Gya (6795m)

(Some wiki stuff copy-pasted)
It stands between the boundaries of Ladakh, Spiti and Tibet. The peak is hidden so deep in a maze of other smaller mountain peaks that it remained unknown till the late 1980′s. This peak remains unconquered.

A few of the reasons -
Approaching it from Spiti is an extremely difficult task. Gya sits at head of fortress carved out by the Lingti river. Lingti “an instrument that cuts rocks”, has carved a maze of deep gorges, high plateaus and over 20 sentinel peaks rising over an altitude of 6000 m. On otherside Gya looks like a single monolith rock wall of 1200 m. Getting to the base of this wall is a challenge of itself.

When the weather is clear(say, dusk and dawn), this particular peak gives infinite opportunities to test camera and its huge.

Thank you Rohit. I suspected them to be the Stok Kangri range, but didn't mention that as I wasn't sure of it. Here are a couple of wider views of the range.
