Muztagh-Ata peak expedition

The name Muztagh Ata means Ice Father in the local Uygyr language. It's easy to understand why it got such name, as it really dominates all surroundings. It's not only a high peak; it's also large in terms of the circumference of the base. Its glaciated summit looms about 4 kilometres over the beautiful Subashi Valley and the deep blue Karakol Lake completes the picture.
There was a debate about a range the peak belongs to, but nowadays most consider it to be the western end of mighty Kunlun Shan Range. Some are still placing Muztagh Ata to Pamir, but those are in small minority. The sub range it belongs to is named Kongur Shan, which refers to its higher neighbour a bit further north. Muztagh Ata is the third highest peak in the Kunlun, second to Kongur.
