In the following position:
1. White King h5
2. White Rook h6
3. Black Pawn h7
4. Black King h8
Can the white King move to g6 square?

White cannot move to g6 because his King would be on check. Chess rules do not allow a King to place himself into a check position.
The graphic below illustrates this position:
Even that the black Pawn on h7 is pinned by the white Rook, the
white King is not allowed to move into g6.
