P 19,081 (Durgakot). This peak in the Tharkot range was climbed on October 15 by Pranesh Chowdhury, Monuj Bhowmik, Dr. Sunirmal Ghosh and Ram Singh. They reached Base Camp at Sukhram on October 10 and established Camp I on the 12th. As snow conditions on Tharkot were difficult, the attempt on Tharkot was abandoned. They established Camp II on the 14th and climbed the previously unnamed peak the next day.
