Japanese explorer and AAC Honorary Member Tamotsu Nakamura and companions have just returned from an extraordinary photographic expedition to the Nyainqentanglha East and Kangri Garpo regions of eastern Tibet. Starting from the town of Qamdo, the team covered 4,800 kilometers in a vast counterclockwise loop over five weeks in October and November. As we’ve come to expect from Nakamura’s many expeditions to eastern Tibet and southwestern China in the past two decades, he has returned with gorgeous photos of unclimbed peaks.

You can see a gallery of 28 new Nakamura photos from this fall’s expedition, plus a map of the team’s route, at the American Alpine Journal website.
