The Mountains of the Zemu Valley, North Sikkim

A South Col Expeditions team trekked the Zemu Valley and the Green Lakes Kangchenjunga base camp in October-November 2014. The spectacular valley has an array of impressive peaks both named and unnamed and possibly some still to be climbed! Here is a black and white essay on some of the peaks of the valley.

  1. Superb. Good to see these in black and white

  2. Amazing pics! The mountains evoke such a sense of awe in me (like many other people, I suppose). Just stumbled across your blog and it seems fantastic - a Himalayan travel blog, wow. Bookmarking you. :)
