Gurla Mandhata. A Viennese student, Herbert Tichy, disguised as an Indian pilgrim with two Indian friends and Kitar, a porter of the last Nanga Parbat expedition, made a trip to the holy mountain, Kailas, and attempted the climb of Gurla Mandhata (25,000 ft.) with the porter Kitar. They reached height of 23,400 ft. where they were turned back by new snow and bad weather.
