Asia, India, Garhwal Himalaya

Garhwal Himalaya. An American-British expedition to Nanda Devi, the highest mountain in the British Empire was extremely successful this summer, as chronicled elsewhere in these pages. In addition we understand that this past fall a small group of four Japanese were successful, on the second attempt, in climbing Nanda Kot (22,530 ft.). A small Swiss party under the leadership of the well-known geologist Arnold Heim and composed of August Gansser and Werner Weckert was also in this district.
