1) November 2007 Ata Glacier reconnaissance
Mr. Takeru Yamada had led the party to the Ata Glacier, Kangri Garpo Range. He had found possible route to KG-2 (Lopchin Feng 6805m) instead of the route to the top of Ruoni, which is the highest peak of Kangr Garpo Mountains.
2) Glacier_receding_of_the-Ata-Glacier
ACKU (The Alpine Club of Kobe University) sent expedition parties to the Ata Glacier in 2002, 2003, 2007 qnd 2009. They had good opportunity to survey the change of the glacier. The glacier was apparently shulinking . The climate change of the region affected dramatic receding of the ice.
