LocationArunachal Pradesh
Altitude6654 mts


 Takpa Shiri is an unclimbed peak with unique religious significance; it lies in the Kangto part of the Himalayas. Located at an altitude of some 6,654 m  in the state of Arunachal Pradesh on the border with China and India, it is one of the most sacred mountains here. Locals believe that circling the Takpa Shiri delivers a spiritual bliss. Unfortunately, much of the ancient traditions have disappeared due to border disputes and difficulties with crossing the border. Circumambulation of the Takpa Shiri equals to circumambulation of the Mount Kailash.
