Nandabhannar, Nandakhani, Shallang Dhura. There has been considerable interest in a pass in Kumaon first crossed in 1926 by Hugh Ruttledge’s porters. An Indian team explored its existence in 1988. This year a team from Bombay led by Divyesh Muni reached the pass and the plateau about it. They climbed Nandabhannar (6236 meters, 20,450 feet), Nandakhani (6029 meters, 19,780 feet) and Sahallang Dhura (5678 meters, 18,630 feet).
