Kusum Kanguru Peak Climbing

Trip Code: PKK

20 Days

Kusum Kanguru Peak

Kusum Kanguru (6369m) is one of the beautiful rock and ice peaks which lie between the Dudhkosi in the south and Hinku Valley to the north in Everest region. The name of the peak is derived from Sherpa language which literally means' Three Snow-White Gods'. This peak is regarded as technically very challenging for climbing and the participants should have enough alpine mountaineering experience.
There are two routes approachable either from south East Ridge or north Ridge. Normally most of the climbers follow South East Ridge route from Hinku Valley to ascend the main summit. From Lukla, it takes 5-6 days to reach the base of Kusum Kanguru peak at 4360m and from here two or three high camps are required to summit. When you undertake South East Ridge route to Kusum Kanguru Peak, you will pass through areas like- Lukla, Chhetra La pass, Tuli Kharka, Mausam Kharka, Tangnag and Kusum Kanguru base camp.
The North Ridge is approached from Lukla up to Namche Bazaar. From base camp, we initially ascend steep grassy trail, then sloping mass of loose rocks at the base of a cliff and finally a ramp leading to the summit.
The itinerary for Kusum Kanguru has been meticulously designed to allow for gradual ascend and proper acclimatization by our climbing leaders. However, both experienced and amateur trekkers can attempt Kusum Kanguru peak climbing with the support of our professional climbers. The best season to climb Kusum Kangru peak is from March to May and September to December.
