  Gangkhar Puensum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The book of the 1986 British expedition gives the mountain's height as 24,770 feet and states that Gangkhar Puensum is completely inside Bhutan, whereas the nearby Kula Kangri is completely inside Tibet.
Kula Kangri, 7554 metres, is a separate mountain 30 km to the northeast which was first climbed in 1986.
Unlike most maps, the expedition's report shows this summit as being in Tibet and the Tibet-Bhutan border is shown crossing the summit of Gangkhar Puensum, described as "the highest peak in Bhutan," at 7570 metres.
