  • Mt. Sudarshan also known as Sudarshan Parbat is located in the Garhwal range of the Himalayas in Uttarakhand, India .
  • It stands at a height of 6529 m.
  • This mountain is the 87th highest located entirely within the state of Uttarakhand.
  • It was first attempted by an Indo-French expedition, led by Harish Kapadia on 30 May 1981 by climbing the east ridge.
  • Mt. Sudarshan is surrounded by many 6000er peaks such as – Chaturbhuj (6654 m), Shyamvarn (6,135 m), Yogeshwar (6678 m), Kalidhang (6373 m), Manda 1 (6511m)
