Apsarasas Kangri
1908 Workman expedition, from apsara ("fairies") and sas ("place"), thus "place of the fairies".[3] There are at least three main summits of near-equal height, usually labeled I to III from west to east over a distance of 5 km. The eastern summit (35°31′14″N 77°11′56″E / 35.52056°N 77.19889°E / 35.52056; 77.19889) is separated from the other two by a saddle just over 6800 m high.

Only the western peak (Apsaras I) appears to have been climbed. The first ascent was made over the west ridge by Yoshio Inagaki, Katsuhisa Yabuta and Takamasa Miyomoto of the Osaka University Mountaineering Club on August 7, 1976.[4] The second ascent was by an Indian Army expedition on September 18, 1980,[5] and another Indian army team achieved the third ascent in 1988.[6] Apsaras II and Apsaras III are listed as "virgin peaks" by the Indian Mountaineering Foundation,[7] and the eastern summit counts amongst the highest unclimbed peaks.
