The Naimonanyi is located in the west of mid-Himalayas in Pulan, Ali. Over 7694 meters above sea level, the mountain peak first attracted a planned scientific expedition in 2004, which was also carried out jointly by these Chinese and American scientists. Thus it was identified as an ideal place for ice coring to study climate change, given its high elevation, relatively low latitudes and flattish geomorphology on the top. The base camp was set up in a 4800m.a.s.l valley in Naimonanyi region on Sept. 10, 2006. Scientists then transported the ice coring equipment, life necessities and logistics to the required spots (6100m a.s.l) manually, though with some help of the Tibetan yaks when possible. Initiating on Sept. 31, 2006, scientists spent more than ten days to drill satisfactory ice cores, then another ten days to lorry the cores down to the base camp.
With the establishment of Tibet Mountaineering Association on June 8, 1982 it has been adhering to the principle of actively carrying out friendly relations with the mountain and mountaineering organizations in all provinces and municipalities of the Peoples Republic of China and in foreign countries and regions all over the world with a view to co-operatively promoting the mountaineering undertaking of mankind.
Although Tibet Mountaineering Association has opened so far 22 peaks for expeditions and thinking of 3 more peaks opening above 6000 m. in the near future. However, out of these 22 mountaineering peaks opened so far we, the Adventure Silk Road Inc., have set our choice for the following peaks only since there are generally persuaded by foreign climbers and alpine clubs throughout the world.
