Kanchenjunga Expedition

Kanchenjunga Expedition

Kanchanjunga 8,586 meter mountain measurement goes it is the third highest mountain in the world. And sits astride the Nepal and Sikkim border (India) only a few miles from Tibet. This mountain was first climbed by Mr. George Christopher Band and Joe. Brown in 1955. In keeping with its name "five treasure houses of the great snows" the Kanchanjunga Mountain is a grand collection of shapely spires. It is unique in as much as it is buttressed north and south as well as east and west by mountains of equal stature. This multi-topped massif comprises of four summits. Each one measuring over eight thousand meter called Kanchanjunga Main (Main) 8,586 meter, Kanchanjunga (South) 8,476m., Kanchanjunga (8,476m.) West Summit and Yalung-Kang 8,505m.

In 1848-49 one of the greatest of British botanists J.D. Hooker, made two commendable trips to make an almost complete circuit of the Kanchanjunga range. But it was only in 1955, more than a century later, that a British expedition finally made summit of Kanchanjunga. There are four different routes to the mountain peak with both its south and east side providing opportunities for new routes. It is believed that the east flank of the South Summit is by far the most difficult face route. Our trip starts from Taplejung to Base Camp through Mitlung. And our trail back via another trekking route Selele, Milgin-La 4654m., Tseram 3770m. and end at Taplejung then we will take plane to Kathmandu.
