Trip Introduction

Mount Kanchenjunga Expedition peak is the third highest peak of the world lies on the Nepal-India Border section of the mighty Himalaya. The peak of Kanchenjunga was first ascended by a British Expedition team of Joe Brown and George Band in May 25, 1955. The name “Kanchenjunga” literally means “the Five Treasures of Snows”, as it contains five peaks, of which four of them are over 8,450 m (27,720 ft). The five treasures of the god are Gold, Silver, Gems, Grain and Holy book. The five peaks of Mt Kanchenjunga are Kanchenjunga main (8586 m.), Kanchenjunga West (Yalung Kang) (8,505 m.), Kanchenjunga Central (Middle) (8,482 m.), Kanchenjunga South (8,494 m.) and Kangbachen (7,903 m.).

In the Taplejung district of Nepal, Kanchenjunga Conservation Area Project is run by the World Wildlife Fund jointly associated with the Government of Nepal. Kanchenjunga Expedition is one of the most challenging expedition peaks in Nepal and across the world. The Kanchenjunga Conservation Area covers a total area of 2,035 square km (786 sq mi) comprising of beautiful cultivated farmlands, pasturelands, high altitude rivers and lakes, Moraine Glaciers and the two peaks of the Kanchenjunga.

Kanchenjunga Expedition leads you to a park which encloses a diverse range of highland vegetation ranging from the temperate Broadleaf and mixed forests of oaks, fir, birch, maple. Willow in the lower elevation and Alpine Grass and shrubs with some medicinal plants and herbs in relatively high altitude. This diverse vegetation makes the region suitable for a wide range of Flora, Fauna and Avifauna to survive.

Kanchenjunga lies on the border of Sikkim and Nepal, just 46 miles northwest of Darjeeling. The North face route to the mountain is considered the safest, although not the easiest. We begin climbing Kanchenjunga from a base camp in the meadows of Panorama at 5,180 meters. The start itself is pretty challenging, as we need to fix lines up 900 meters of intricate mixed climbing to the North col. Once, we have created a lifeline to-and-from the North Col, we can begin the lengthy process of establishing three camps up the complicated North ridge. Before setting you up for Kanchenjunga expedition, it’s important for us to gain a full understanding of your body’s response to altitude and help you gain experience with Himalayan conditions. That’s why we highly recommend you to join our preparatory programs of mountaineering, which is conducted in other mountains a bit easier to attempt.
