In August-September 2015 Derek and 4 other AC members travelled from Leh to Padam in the Zanskar region of India where they extensively explored the Temasa nala valley, climbing two hitherto virgin peaks and attempting one other. This talk will be an illustrative account of the expedition that was financially supported by the MEF, AC and OAV.
