Detailed Product Description
Namjagbarwa (East Tibet). A Chinese topographic map of Namjagbarwa in East Tibet. Folded Topo Map, Scale 1:100 000 
 
NAMCHA BARWA forms the eastern anchor of the Himalayan chain, and is the easternmost mountain in the world over 7,600 metres. In addition to its role as the eastern anchor of the Himalayas, Namcha Barwa is notable for its great local relief. It towers over the Tsangpo gorge, which curves from the west, through the north, and then to the east side of the mountain. For example, the drop from the summit to the river on the west side is 5,000 metres in 12 kilometres,  while the drop to the river on the east side is 6,800 metres in about 30 kilometres.

Also, between 1976 and its first ascent in 1992, Namcha Barwa was the highest unclimbed independent mountain in the world. (Batura Sar, 7,795 metres, climbed in 1976, was the previous record holder.)

Climbing history

Namcha Barwa was first accurately located in 1912 by British surveyors. The area saw little activity by outsiders between 1913 and the 1980s. In the 1980s, several Chinese teams made serious efforts on the peak, and scouted multiple routes, but did not succeed in reaching the summit.

In 1990 a joint Japanese-Chinese expedition reconnoitered the peak, and another joint expedition made an attempt in 1991, which reached 7460m but resulted in the death of one member, Hiroshi Onishi, in an avalanche.
 
In 1992, a third Japanese-Chinese expedition succeeded in reaching the summit. They established Base Camp on September 14, and reached the summit on October 30, after placing six camps. Their route followed the South Ridge, over the intermediate Naipun Peak. Eleven members of the expedition reached the summit, all but the expedition co-leader, Tsuneo Shigehiro.
