Chandra Parbat and Indradhanush, Attempts. An 11-member Indian team from Dimdoot, Calcutta, led by Debasish Kanji, attempted these peaks in the Gangotri area during the months of May and June. They established their last camp at 6100 meters on the ridge between Chandra Parbat (6728 m) and Indradhanush (6739 m). Five members reached 6400 meters on the west face, which was the high point of the expedition.
