The Tibetan name Nojin kangsang stands for “Yaksha (a malevolent spirit) living on the noble snowy mountain”. Nojinkangsang is the main peak of the Lhagoi Kangri Shan – range, which rises between the town Gyangze (4045m) and the holy lake Yamdrog Tso or Yamzho Yumco (4482m), southwest of the Tibetan capital Lhasa (3658m). The south slope of Nojinkangsang rises directly north of the Karo La-pass (5010m) on the Sino-Nepal-Highway from Lhasa to Gyangze. This is where the easiest climbing route starts and we will climb up west of the Karo-glacier to the south-western pre-summit of about 6650m. Then it goes up to the summit on the southwest-ridge. From this side Nojinkangsang was first successfully climbed on April 28th 1986 by a Chinese-Tibetan mountaineering team of 12 persons.
