Expeditions in Sikkim in 2000
The 10 member team set up the base camp at Green Lake (4700 m) on the Zemu glacier in mid-April. They proceeded slowly up the east ridge route setting; ABC (5250 m) Camp 1 (5625m) and Camp 2 (6200 m). Route ahead was full of soft snow due to fresh snowfall and they found route dangerous. The attempt was given up at 6200 m on 8th May.
