Gori Chen Climbing Notes

Tsering from INDIA writes:

Gori Chen is a high rock and ice peak and the most western and most easily accessed of the main Arunachal peaks with an elevation of 6,488 metres (21,286ft). It belongs to The Himalaya Mountain Group and is a sub-range to Assam Himalaya. It is also the Headwaters of the Kameng River in Tawang. Today it is the most frequented of the Assam peaks. The mountain has several subsidiaries, slightly lower peaks, which also have been climbed. Together with Bhutan, Assam is the least explored of the Himalaya. In 1939, an Englishman Bill Tilman was the first man to attempt climbing in the remote and unexplored Southern approaches of Gori Chen, before his team succumbed to malaria. This mountain received its first ascent by a team led by Dutchman Ronald Naar in 1993 who couldn't get a permit in time, because of the bureaucracy of the government at the time, so an illegal ascent was made.
