Join me in this 50-day expedition to Kanchenjunga Mountain, one of the highest peaks in the world, in a remote area of the Himalayas.
In the border of Nepal and the state of Sikkim in India, lies Kanchenjunga Mountain. At 8586 m, it is the third highest mountain in the world, behind Mount Everest and K2.
It is also the most easterly of the 8000 meter peaks in the Himalayas, at 46 miles from the Indian city of Darjeeling. This town is actually famous for its wonderful views of Kanchenjunga, which is considered a sacred mountain.
Kanchenjunga Mountain has five important peaks rising from its ice ridges, as well as other satellite minor peaks. Because of that, it receives the name of ‘Five Treasures of the Great Snow’.
The first ascent to this mountain was in 1955. Nevertheless, it is not among the most explored by climbers, due to its remote location and difficult access.
For this trip, our starting point will be Kathmandu. Then we’ll fly to Bhadrapur, in southeastern Nepal. After that, we will continue our way up for eleven days, until we reach Kanchenjunga Base Camp.
The climbing period will take place from days 15 to 43.
For further information regarding the itinerary, you can look at the complete program below.
