There are a total of 11 Peaks (majority of them are unclimbed) of above 6,000 m in the Jugal Range and one of them being the Gyalzen Peak. The first ascent, via the south-southeast face, of Gyalzen Peak was made on 9th April, 2019 by a Nepalese Team.

The Valley was explored on 1955 by (U.K.) female mountaineering expedition team and climbed to the head of the Jugal Glacier peak-6,705m as well. And This peak was climbed subsequently by two Japanese expeditions in the early 1960s. According to local report since 1960s there were no anyone Tourist traveled.
