Apsarasas, Mamostong and Saser Kangri I and IV. Three Indian expeditions to the Eastern Karakoram have been successful, but we have been unable to get details. An Indian Army expedition placed six of its members on the summit of Apsarasas on July 20 and 22. An expedition led by Major M.P. Yadav may have climbed Mamostong by a new route from the Kichik Kumdam Glacier on the east. Heera Lohia led an expedition which climbed Saser Kangri I and IV.
