We trek up the valley to Kyangjin, where we camp in a superb setting, dominated by the fluted north west face of Kangchenpo, whilst Kyangjin Ri provides a splendid viewpoint. From Kyangjin, we move further up the valley to Yala, a small yersa (summer hamlet). Basing ourselves here allows time to walk to the top of Tsergo Ri (5066m), the highest point on a broad flat plateau. The views from here are as spectacular as anywhere in the Himalaya, a 360 degree panorama of snow capped mountains including Langtang Lirung, Pemthang Ri, Langshisha Ri, Dorje Lakpa, and Kangchenpo. If you are lucky with the weather, the summit gives grand views of Shishapangma. This is an excellent peak as a “first time” adventure in the Himalayas. The route involves a base camp at the end of the trail and a high camp a further half day’s trek beyond base.
