The Jomolhari at 7'326 metres is situated at the Bhutan-China border. The Jomolhari has two main peaks, known as Jomolhari I (7'326 m) and Jomolhari II (6'935 m). It is located about 7 kilometres in the southwest of the Jitchu Drake. The mountain is sacred to Buddhists who believe it is the abode of one of the Five Tsheringma Sisters. Its north face rises over 2'700 metres above the Tibetan plains.

First ascent: May 17th 1937 by a British expedition.
