Kanchenjunga Expedition Book Now

  Mt. Kanchenjunga is situated in the eastern part of Nepal at 8598m. It was first climbed by a British team in 1956. It is an enormous mountain mass, and many satellite peaks rise from its narrow icy ridges. It is located on the border of Nepal and Sikkim, just 46 miles northwest of Darjeeling. It is the most easterly of the great 8,000 meter peaks of the Himalayas. The peak consists of four summits. The west summit, Yalung Kang, is 8420m high and some people classify it as a separate 8000m peak. The first westerner to explore Kanchenjunga was the British botanist JD Hooker, who visited the area twice in 1848 and 1849. Exploration of the Sikkim side of the peak continued with both British and pundit explorers mapping and photographing until 1899. In that year a party led by Douglas made a circuit of Kanchenjunga and produced what is still one of the most authoritative maps of the region.

The Japanese now took up the challenge and mounted expeditions in 1976, 1973 and 1974 during which they climbed Yalung Kang. A German Expedition climbed Yalung Kang in 1975, and in 1977 an Indian army team mounted the second successful expedition to the main peak of Kanchenjunga. The route up the north face is definitely the safest, although not the easiest. The climb of Kanchenjunga begins from a charming base camp in the meadows of Pangpema 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 stage of the expedition. Once creating a lifeline to and from the North Col you can begin the 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 as you climb higher and higher up the mountain. This is a highly satisfying climb for the expert climber.
