Kangchenjunga 07 04 Arriving at Ramche with Kabru IV and Ratong behind  [1 of 20]


I’ve just arrived at Ramche (on the left), with Kabru IV and Ratong (6679m) behind. Ramche is the uppermost yak grazing pasture in the Yalung’s ablation valley, bounded by a high curving moraine wall to the east and south. As Moraine Camp for the successful 1955 expedition, 300 porters deposited six tons of food and equipment here to be ferried up the glacier to the Base Camp.
