The name of the peak climbed by Tim-Macartney Snapes team in 2010 is not Pabuk Kang, as stated in AAJ 2011, but Nangamari I, labeled as Peak 6,547m on the HGM-Finn map. Pabuk Kang (6,244m) lies on the frontier ridge approximately two kilometers to the east. The origin of the name Nangamari is uncertain, but older Swiss maps designate the peak Nangayama.
