The most- frequented approach to K7 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.

K-7 (6934m) first climbed in 1984 by a Japaness expedition, and Link Sar (7041m) form a ridge north -east of the upper Tsark Tsa Glacier. K7’s granite face is one of the world’s largest. K6 (7281m) is on the ridge south of the supper glacier. The area between Spangser and K7 base camp is a climber’s paradise, with several 5000m peaks and tons of unclimbed granite. K6 was first climbed in 1970 by an expedition of Austrian Alpine Club.
