Thumbs up Kang La

is one of the Passes crossing over to Nepal from India. Eastern Nepal has the maobaadi situation right now so it would not be advisable to cross over. Some difficult portions are there... but if you are an experienced trekker, you can manage it. Guide required for some stages. A map link on IndiaMike with berkeley Univ maps [search on 'maps']will give you the sikkim area contour map download site.
The Universe is an ellipsoid?... or a Spheroid?? If the sphere smiles... it becomes an ellipse. This IS Creation.

Hi, cliffhanger

I have a ridgeline map of Nepal and Sikkim in jpg format. Here is Khang La too (on the Nepal-Sikkim border). If you give me your e-mail, I can send it to you (about 1.5MB).
To get the contour maps, you can check the link given from jyotipg.
To regret, all of these maps are not correct often. I heared, Leomann's Map are good enough (but ridgelines only too). Can anyone give that map to all the people?

Question Worth the trouble?

I really appreciate your wanting to do Kang La.... but you have written that you have very little info about Kang La. If true, how did you select this trek? Some friend suggested it? Then that would be the correct source for info. Yes, I am growing older everyday... which is why i would not dare to go to a trek about which i "have very little information".

Am not trying to put you off... Kang La is not all that difficult ... but if you are questioning whether it is "worth the trouble"; why haven't you selected a trek which is "worth the trouble"? [this perception of "worth the trouble" varies from person to person and from time to time for even the same person]

Let me allow you to answer... what do you think fits your definition of "worth the trouble"?

You know Yuksam and Bakhim on the Goecha La trek...? Reach Bakhim and from there trek to Dzongri and Kigentang on the mountain ridge. You could walk along the true left bank of the Churong chu.. but who wants to walk at lower altitudes? From Kigentang, descend to Churong village and cross the river to reach Panding. From here, Kang La [5084m] is a two day march on the same side of the river Tiko chu. You are going to a respectable altitude... so please acclimatize properly!!! After three or four days of trekking have a rest day. Kang La is used to cross over to Nepal. DO NOT cross over. The maobaadi problem in Nepal is very much present at this Eastern Nepal district. Also carry your Indian voter cards or some id's to show the Army chaps. Patrolling on this border is very 'kadak' nowadays.
