Green Lakes Trek in North Sikkim

Off limit to trekkers for many years and rigidly controlled by a permit system, few have made it to the north east base camp of Kangchendzonga. I was fortunate to make two visits to Green Lakes, once way back in 1987 along with an Assam Rifles expedition to Kangchenjunga and again in 2014 leading a South Col trek to the Zemu Valley. These photographs are from the 2014  trek to this magical valley! For a route of this trek do visit

  1. Ah splendid photographs. Just a suggestion, could you please move the copyright information to the bottom of the image as in your previous posts. I think the current format detracts from the photo quality.

  2. Hi, Thanks for the great post about Nepal trekking tour. I was searching for this valuable information from long time.
