Kanchenjunga Expedition - 48 Days

Kanchenjunga Expedition – Mt. Kanchanjunga Expedition

Mount Kanchenjunga is the third-tallest mountain in the world after Mt. Everest and Mt. K2. Kanchenjunga is situated in the eastern part of Nepal at 8598m. Mt. Kanchanjunga was first climbed by a British team in 1956. Kanchanjunga is a huge mountain, and many satellite peaks rise from its narrow icy ridges. Mt. Kanchenjunga is located on the border of Nepal and Sikkim, just 46 miles northwest of Darjeeling. The west summit, Yalung Kang, is 8420m high and some people classify it as a separate 8000m peak.

Kanchanjunga Expedition, Expedition in Mount Kanchanjunga, Kanchanjunga Expedition Trip Cost, Kanchanjunga Expedition ItineraryThe first Westerners to explore Kanchenjunga were the British botanist JD Hooker, who visited the area twice in 1848 and 1849. In 1899, a party led by Douglas Freshfield made a circuit of Kanchenjunga and produced what is still one of the most authoritative maps of the region.

The Japanese team took the challenge and mount Kanchanjunga expeditions in 1973, 1974 and 1976 then they climbed Yalung Kang. A German expedition climbed Yalung Kang in 1975 and in 1977 an Indian army team made successful expedition to the main peak of Kanchenjunga.

The route (North Face) of Mt. Kanchanjunga is definitely the safest, although not the easiest climb. The expedition of Mt. Kanchenjunga begins from a charming base camp with meadows and a Panoramic view at 5,180 m. First challenge is to fix lines up 900m of involved mixed climbing to the North col. This provides the most challenging climbing of the Mt. Kanchanjunga expedition. Mt. Kanchanjunga is a highly satisfying climb for the expert climbers.

What Our Clients Says?

Everest Base Camp Trekking -2008

"What was I thinking???? Early mornings crazy slippery & muddy trails, yak dug, steep cliffs, rain, snow and those nasty uphill (I think it would have been easier to build an new bridge then walk phortse to Mong!) But it was all worth it. The spectacular views, peaceful village, friendly locals, great food, local Sherpa culture.....
