The most- frequented approach to K6 Base Camp is from Kande Village which is half-way up Hushe valley. There is a footbridge over the Hushe River that you cross to reach the Nangmah River on the north of Mingyulu village.
Keep walking along the bank of the river till you arrive the Nangmah summer pastures. The BC is on the north-west edge of the Nangmah glacier.
The valley is surrounded by steep granite walls that seem to meet in the sky. The stark beauty of this place is awesome.
The entire journey from Kande village to BC comprises 3 stages which takes two days to reach. The same stages are repeated on the return journey. K6 was first climbed in 1970 by an expedition of Austrian Alpine Club.
