About Nine-day Adventure to Mt. Muztag Ata:

Muztag Ata is not just a name but actually has a meaning: "Father of all Icepeaks". Sounds impressive... However the story goes that the explorer who mapped the area for the first time asked a boy, what the name of the mountain was and the boy answered, "Muztagh, ata", meaning "Icepeak, father" (father being used out of respect for the elderly stranger). Another example that a comma can make a big difference. http://www.cnadventure.com/docc/Mt.Muztag_Ata_trekking.asp
