Mt. Kanchenjunga Expedition

Trip Code: KXK

60 Days

Mt. Kanchenjunga

Mt. Kanchenjunga, located in the far east region of Nepal. is the third highest mountain in the world. (28,169 ft / 8,598m). It is an enormous mountain mass with many satellite peaks rising from its narrow icy ridges. Just 46 miles northwest of Darjeeling, it is the most easterly of the great 8,000 meter peaks of the Himalaya. The peak has four summits. The west summit, Yalung Kang, is 8420m high and some people classify it as a separate 8000m peak.

The route (North Face) is the safest, although not the easiest. The climb of Kanchenjunga begins from a pleasant 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 we create a fixed rope 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 slowly move higher and higher up the mountain. This is an extremely satisfying climb for expert Climbers.

Trip Highlights

World's 3rd highest mountain, technically difficult to climb, four camps require for the summit, fantastic views from the summit, intricate rock and ice climb with dangers of avalanche between Camp II & IV, possible to climb the peak without supplementary oxygen for experience climbers
