Kanchenjunga Expedition - 65 Days


Kanchenjunga expedition is the third-highest mountain in the world. It is 8586m high that is situated in eastern part of Nepal. It is located on the border of Nepal and Sikkim, about 46 miles northwest of Darjeeling. It is an enormous mountain mass, and many peaks rise from its narrow icy ridges. First climbed in 1955 by a British team including famed rock climber Joe Brown & George Band. The successful British expedition team of 1955 set the standard by stopping a few feet below of the actual summit, in honor of the local religion. This peak lives up to its reputation. The route of North face is the safest route. This route also is not very easy. Pangpema at 5,180m, a charming base camp from where Kanchenjunga climbing starts.
