Saser Kangri. Saser Kangri, 25,170 feet, lies on the eastern end of the Karakoram, north of Leh. This was unsuccessfully attempted by an expedition early in the summer of 1956. The group from the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute was under the leadership of Major Narendra J. Jayal. The west face of the mountain appeared too dangerous and the approaches to the eastern side were impossible, apparently because of high water or glaciers and difficult high passes.
