The villages tend to be more prosperous than elsewhere in Nepal, but further you go the more isolated the communities will be introduced to you.

Day 13: Kyapar – Ghunsa (3410m)
The day begins with a day steep drop into a ravine, followed by an easy level stage through fir and rhododendron forests along the riverbank. It takes all mornings to trek to the yak pastures and potato fields of Phole (3210m).

Day 14: Ghunsa – Khambachen (4150m)
Heading north from Ghunsa, the trail makes a gradual ascent through a forest of larch and juniper along the east bank of the river. After crossing a sandy, boulder-strewn floodpain, the path crosses a rickety, wood and stone bridge to the west side of the river at Rambuk Kharka (3720m). We glimpse the Jannu Glacier, later on we get a view of Jannu (7710m) we descend the mountainside to our camp at Khambachen and overnight staying there.

Day 15: Acclimatization day in Khambachen

The views from here are superb- the peaks of Khabur (6332m) and Phole (6645m) and Jannu are lined up at the east, while the snowcapped ridges beyond the Kanchenjunga Glacier loom dramatically to the north. Alternatively you could try a bit of nature Photography. So deserve a rest today to collect our thoughts on how wild and wonderful everything has been so far.

Day 16: Khambachen – Lhonak (4790m)
Above Khambachen, the trail enters a desolate landscape gouged by the icy fingers of glaciers. The path climbs gradually across the slopes of landslides to pasture area Ramtang (4350m). The trail runs along the lateral moraine of Kanchenjunga Glacier, following the north bank of the river and cross over to the Lhonak Glacier. On the east side of the valley is the crown shaped Merra Peak (6344m). We arrive at our campsite at Lhonak. The village of Lhonak sits beside a wide, often dry lakebed, on an open, sandy plain.

Day 17: Lhonak trip to Pangpema (5140m)

Day 18: Pangpema to Khambachen and to the Passes
The views are often crisp and clear in the early morning to hike up the ridge north of Pangpema for the kind of view that inspire religions. From a vantage point about 300m up the slope, you will have a panorama of Kanchenjunga, Taple Shikar and Gimmigela Chuli. We link to the Kanchenjunga south treks by crossing the Mirgin La (4663m) and the Lapsang La pass (5160m) depending on the weather conditions where both are of tough kind.

Day 19: Rest day in High Pass
We shall have a rest today to make progress from the labors of the previous day. Have a beautiful glimpse around the pass of the spectacular snowcapped mountains and ridges.

Day 20: High Camp – Ramche (4620m)

Day 21:Ramche – Tseram (3870m)
A relatively short day walks to Tseram. The scenery is magnificent as we descend past the snout of the Yalung Glacier and into a series of ablation valleys. A frozen lake, crystal clear streams and views of Kokthan, Rathong and Kabru are the highlights of this walk. We will have a magnificent view of the Kanchenjunga south face from a chorten at about 4500m. We descend later to Tseram for our over night camp.

Day 22: Tseram – Torontham (2990m)
Just after Tseram, the towering heights of Kabru and Rathong peep over the moraine. The trail is fairly downhill and as the day progresses, the trees become sparser and more stunted, giving us glimpses of the snow-capped giants ahead and of the massive snout of the Yalung Glacier. We steadily descend through the forests of mixed rhododendron and pine to Torontham.

Day 23:Torontham – Yamphudin (1690m)
A steep ascent takes us down into the valley of the Simbua Khola after crossing an interesting wooden bridge. We ascend across some fairly steep and exposed slopes after re-entering the forest.

So, be prepared for this while you are traveling here.  For your ease, we recommend you to bring the flashlight with extra bulbs and batteries.
