To its south east is the 6600 m Kabru Dome."Kabru" name is correctly applied to this summit. According to the 1996 version of the Himalayan Journal (pp. 29 - 36), members of an Indian Army expedition reached this summit in May 1994.The 7338 m summit of Kabru is the site of a mountaineering altitude record, either in 1883 or in 1905. The English barrister William Graham, the Swiss hotelier Emil Boss and the Swiss mountain guide Ulrich Kauffmann reported to have reached a point 30-40 feet below this summit, which Graham described as "little more than a pillar of ice", at 2pm on October 8, 1883.
