Broad Peak is the 12th highest mountain in the world at 8,051 metres (26,414 ft) above sea level. The literal translation of "Broad Peak" to Falchan Kangri is not accepted among the Balti people. The English name was introduced in 1892 by the British explorer Martin Conway, in reference to the similarly named Breithorn in the Alps.

Nethryk and Kushti, beautiful Chinese stamps!!! Thanks :)


The Dovre mountains have a place in Norway’s cultural history as a symbol of unity and identity. The area is an integral part of the myths about the origins of the Norwegian people and of its kings and earls and it features in the initiation of heroes and in medieval pilgrimages to Nidaros.

Here is a SS issued by Norway on March 27, 2008, depicting the hero Harald Fairhair, who was raised and taught by a giant in Dovre. He met Snefrid at the Tofte farm at the foot of the Dovre mountains and she became his wife. She gave him four sons and from there Norway’s royal line continues through Harald Hardrada (1015-66), Snefrid’s great grandson.


Image

This SS was issued as one in the omnibus set "Norse Mythology" issued by 8 north European countries.
Information: Norway Post.

On 31 May 1977, two climbers of the Army Mountaineering Expedition stood near the top of Kanchenjunga. Major Prem Chand and Naik ND Sherpa of the Army Expedition scaled the summit of Kanchenjunga at 2.45 P.M. on 31 May 1977 and planted the National and Army flags very near the summit.

The two commemorative stamps to honour this feat were released on 15 January 1978.
