Asia, Nepal, Kangtega in Winter

Kangtega in Winter. Kangtega (6779 meters, 22,241 feet) was climbed in the winter for the first time. Ten South Koreans led by Kyong Soo-Jeon climbed it from the south, establishing three camps, the highest at 5800 meters. On December 31 Lee Dae-Seok and Ang Dorjee Ang Sherpa reached the summit in 12 hours from Camp III. Although Kangtega is not high, it is very difficult.
