Lamchir and Nanda Kini. Both of these peaks have been climbed by National Outdoor Leadership School courses. Lamchir was first climbed in 1991 and subsequently in the fall of 1993 and on May 25, 1994. The true summit is 5662 meters (18,576 feet) but we climbed the north ridge to the lower north summit (c. 5600 meters, 18,373 feet). It lies five miles south of Changuch. Nanda Kini (c. 5600 meters, 18,373 feet) is a mile and a half east of Lamchir and live miles south of Nanda Kot. It was first climbed on May 30 by a group led by Krishnan Kutty and again by another party led by me on October 9.
