OVERVIEW

Mount Kanchenjunga Expedition

  • Region - Nepal

  • Duration - 52 Days 

  • Grade - Extreme

  • Max Altitude - 8,586m / 28,170ft

  • Best Season - Spring

 

Mount Kanchenjunga standing at 8586m Kanchenjunga is the third highest peak in the world and the second-highest in Nepal. It was first climbed by a British team in 1955. The peak consists of four summits. The west summit, Yalung Kang, 8420m high, and some people classify it as a separate 8000m peak. Kanchenjunga (8586m) range lies in the extreme north-west of Nepal. which is aligned north to south along the Nepal-Sikkim border. The old hill resort of Darjeeling made it one of the better-known mountains during the initial phase of Himalayan exploration. 

 

The name "Kanchenjunga" is delivered from the Tibetan word 'Kanchen' and 'Dzonga’ translated means "The Five Treasures of the Great Snows", as it contains five peaks, Kanchenjunga I (8586m), Kanchenjunga West (8505m), Kanchenjunga South (8494m) and Kangbachen (7903m).  The treasures represent the five repositories of God, which are gold, silver, gems, grain, and holy books. 

 

The trekking route of Kanchenjunga is drained by the Tamur River that meets Arun below Mulghat. The river is fed by numerous glaciers. The north glaciers of the main peaks are clockwise Nupchu, Lhonak, Chichima, Gimsung, Pyramid, Kanchenjunga, and Ramtang. West and south of the main peak are Kumbhakarna (Jannu), Yamatari and Yalung glaciers. The Kanchenjunga area has a profusion of high summits of which three are above 8,000m. & 11 above 7,000m.

 

The access trek from Suketar to the Base camp is also interesting due to its remoteness, the cultures inhabiting the area, and a very rare endemic flora with 30 varieties of rhododendrons and 69 varieties of orchids. In Kanchenjunga Expedition the North Face route is definitely the safest, although not the easiest. The climb of Kanchenjunga begins from a charming base camp in the meadows of Panorama at 5,180 m. The first challenge is to fix lines up 900 m of intricate mixed climbing to the North col. This provides the most challenging climbing of the expedition. Once creating a lifeline to and from the North Col you can begin the long process of establishing three camps up the long and complicated North ridge. Using Sherpa support and oxygen, you can move at a systematically slow velocity higher and higher up the mountain. This is a highly satisfying climb for expert Climbers.
