A remarkable set of images have come to light which document a historic British expedition to climb one of the world's tallest mountains 87 years ago.<br />
<br />
When a small team of explorers reached the 25,446ft summit of Mt Kamet in the Himalayas on June 21, 1931, they achieved something which had never been done before.<br />
<br />
At that time, it was the tallest mountain to be scaled by humans.<br />

One of the explorers on the Kamet Expedition, photographer and botanist Frank Smythe, took breathtaking snaps which documented every stage of their epic quest.
