Nepal Adventure Trip

Kanchenjunga Expedition

Kanchenjunga ExpeditionThe altitude of the Kanchanjunga is (8,587m), which are the second-highest peak in the Nepal and the third highest in World (after Mount Everest and K2). It is so beautiful and adventure. Kanchenjunga translated means "The Five Treasures of Snows", as it contains five peaks, four of them over (8,450m). The treasures represent the five repositories of God, which are gold, silver, gems, grain, and holy books. Kanchenjunga is called Sewalungma in the local Limbu language, translates as 'Mountain that we offer Greetings to'. Kanchenjunga or Sewalungma is considered sacred in the Kirant religion.

Three of the five peaks (main, central, and south) are on the border of North Sikkim district of Sikkim, India and Taplejung District of Nepal, while the other two are completely in Taplejung District. Nepal is home to the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area Project run by the World Wildlife Fund in association with Government of Nepal. The sanctuary is home to the Red Panda and other montage animals, birds and plants. India's side of Kanchenjunga also has a protected park area called the Khangchendzonga National Park. A British team first climbed it in 1956. 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 Expedition of Kanchanjunga was started from the Sikkim side, from British India. Dr AM kellas was the one of the major contributors to Western knowledge about the region. After that German expeditions started the peak in 1929, 1930 and again in 1931, but they were all fail. Due to all this, the Sikkim closed and expedition rout was open from Nepal. In 1955 a team led by Evans approached the peak via the Yalung Glacier. Two teams climbed the peak and they were success. After that they talked with Sikkim and change the rout. Now in the present it has became popular for the expedition and people love doing expedition in Kanchanjunga

Kanchenjunga was assumed to be the highest mountain in the world till 1852, But calculations made by the British Great Trigonometric Survey in 1849 came to the conclusion that Mount Everest (known as Peak XV at the time) was the highest and Kanchenjunga the third-highest. The Japanese now took up the challenge and mounted Kanchenjunga expeditions in 1976, 1973 and 1974 during which they climbed Yalung Kang. A German Expedition climbed Yalung Kang in 1975and in 1977 an Indian army team mounted the second successful expedition to the main peak of Kanchenjunga.

The route North Face route is definitely the safest, although not the easiest. An expedition in Nepal to Kanchenjunga begins from a charming base camp in the meadows of Panorama at 5180m. The first challenge is to fix lines up 900m of intricate mixed climbing to the North col. This provides the most challenging climbing of the expedition. Once having created a lifeline to and from the North Col you can begin the long 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 higher and higher up the mountain. A Nepal expedition here is a highly satisfying climb for the expert climber.
