Uja Tirche (literally High Mountain) is a peak close to the Tibetan border in the Nanda Devi group of the Kumaon/Garhwal Himalaya. It was first climbed in 1937 by Lieutenant (later Major-General) R C A Edge, with a surveying party from the Survey of India. Nanda Devi is the second highest mountain in India and the highest entirely within the country (Kangchenjunga being on the border of India and Nepal); owing to this geography it was the highest known mountain in the world until computations on Dhaulagiri by western surveyors in 1808. It was also the highest mountain in India before Sikkim joined India. It is part of the Garhwal Himalaya, and is located in the state of Uttarakhand, between the Rishiganga valley on the west and the Goriganga valley on the east. Its name means Bliss-Giving Goddess.
