Rest Camp to Camp Masuda, 4641m, (27°46’09N, 88° 19’46E)
The walk is about 4 hours, it’s a gradual climb, but you will begin to feel the thin air. The trail is through boulders brought down by ancient glaciers and it is quite tiring, negotiating the bends and climbs. The camp is located in one of the most beautiful spot. You can have a great view of all the great peaks from your tent, without having to get out of your tent. Khangchendzonga, The Twins, Siniolchu, Simvo, Nepal Peak, Tent Peak, Nepal Col, Nepal Gap. If you look to the distant East Jhomolhari stands before you in the grandest form far away in Bhutan. From the camp just walk for a minute and you will come face to face with the mighty Zemu glacier, considered to be the biggest glacier in the Himalaya at 17 miles long. Sun rise is a wonderful experience here. The slow lighting of the peaks in the morning is just magical.
