Langpo Gang, Jugal Himal. Another Japanese expedition was also in Nepal at the same time. Under the leadership of Tokujiro Kajimoto, they climbed to within a few hundred feet of the summit of Langpo Gang (Big White Peak) (23,240 feet) but they had to retreat because of bad weather and lack of supplies. A Japanese expedition had reconnoitered the peak in 1958. (See A.A.J., 1959, 11:2, p. 245.)
