Notes[edit]

  1. Hartemann & Hauptman 2005, pp. 233–244 is used as a reference for most peaks. Peaks not in the citation are referenced separately.
  2. The table below only lists the 100 summits with at least 500 m (1,640 ft) prominence. A few spectacular peaks such as Abi Gamin (prominence of 217m) and Gimmigela Chuli (prominence of 432m) are therefore not included in the table.
  3. Peakbagger is used as a reference for this column.
