The only attempt was in 1957 by a British team led by Jimmy Roberts. Climbers Wilfrid Noyce and A. D. M. Cox climbed to within 150 m (492 ft) of the summit via the north ridge, to an approximate altitude of 22,793 ft (6,947 m). They did not complete the ascent, as they had promised not to set foot on the actual summit. Ever since then, the mountain has been forbidden to climb.
1. Mount Kailash (6,638m), China
2. Machapuchare (6,993m), Nepal
3. Gangkhar Puensum (7,570m), Bhutan
4. Nanda Devi (7,816m), India
There are other mountains, where climbers are not allowed to step on the true summit due to religious reasons.
Kangchenjunga (8,586m), India-Nepal border
OmParvat (6,191m), India-Nepal border
