Eric Shipton surveyed it from the west in 1931. The first serious attempt to reach the summit was made by B. R. Goodfellow and J. Buzzard (UK) in 1944. Finally, a Swiss team under André Roch made the first ascent in 1947 via the east ridge.

The first Indian ascent was made in 1960.

The approach was made via the east ridge, and the summit was reached on 22 October 1960. Summiters were Sukumar Roy and Nima Tashi.
