Day 12: Trip to Yalung Glacier, Return to Tseram
A day trip to Yalung Glacier and back to Tseram will take almost 6-7 hrs where we ascend 200m and descend 950m. To make a day trip to the Yalung Glacier, we follow a stream alongside the moraine for a long distance, then bear right to climb onto the moraine itself. From a chorten at 4800m there is a fine view of the south face of Kanchenjunga. A short distance beyond the chorten is a view of Jannu.

This is a good place to turn around and retrace our steps to Tseram. To go further, we would need to climb down the rough moraine unto the Yalung Glacier and pick our way through the boulder-strewn glacier towards Kanchenjunga. We return back to Tseram where we lay our camp.
