Kanchanjunga Expedition

Overview

$dataTitle

Kanchenjunga Expedition is one of the best 8000m mountain climbing in Nepal with remoteness, and some not too difficult technical climbing in a huge massif. With spring climbing at its best it can be also climbable in autumn albeit in somewhat difficult snow conditions.

Kanchenjunga Expedition to the third highest mountain in the world (after Mount Everest and K2), with an elevation of 8586 m (28,169 ft.)and located in Eastern Nepal on the border between Nepal and Sikkim, India territory, is tough peak for climbing but extremely enjoyable climb for an experienced climber-mountaineer. Kanchenjunga translates to "The Five Treasures of Snows" representing 5 peaks of this majestic massif and 4 of them in 8000m range Kanchenjunga Main 8586m/28150ft, Kanchenjunga West (Yalung Kang) 8505m/27885ft, Kanchenjunga Central 8482m/27810ft, Kanchenjunga South 8494/27850ft, and Kangbachen 7903m/25910ft. 3 highest Kanchenjunga peaks are located precisely on the border and 2 lower are entirely located within Nepal.

In the local Limbu language Kanchenjunga is known as Sewalungma which translates as 'Mountain that we offer Greetings to' and not surprisingly so as it is a sight to respect. Mount Kanchejunga is also sacred mountain to Sikkim people and as a permit condition of first Kanchenjunga Expedition was not to step on the peak point itself, which was respected by British expedition, who stopped few feet from actual peak, and it has been a traditional way for most of the respected climbers to follow the tradition of the first Kanchenjunga Expedition.
