Gabral Valley. The Kyoto University of Education Expedition was led by Tatsuya Harada and further composed of Toshikazu Oze, Masao Horiike, Yuzuru Domiri, Kazuo Hashimoto, Kazuo Takano and Gyoichi Hidani. In early June they explored the Gabral valley from Saidu Sharif, breaking into three groups. One explored a narrow, steep side valley to the left. The other two continued up the main valley past Jaba and Rabure before dividing again. One of these reconnoitered Harahari Peak (17,060 feet) but was unable to climb it. The other group reconnoitered the main valley towards Ringy Pass. They reached no summits.
