Kanchenjunga Expedition

Kanchenjunga Expedition

Climbing Mount Kanchenjunga is regarded as a difficult mountaineering adventure than Mt. Everest Expedition.

Kanchenjunga Expedition involves intricate mixed climbing at first and then a very long horizontal climb above 8,000 metres. This makes it a very demanding mountain that requires effective logistics and strong support. It is probably, for this reason, Kanchenjunga sees so small traffic, despite being the third highest mountain in the world.
As the expedition lasts nearly ten weeks, you should be aware of changing weather conditions.

Kanchenjunga translates to “Five treasures of the snow” which refer to the five summits that make up the peak. Kanchenjunga is considered to be one of the most majestic massifs in the world and the sight from the base camp is a truly memorable experience. The three-week long trek with tricky trails is considered difficult and demands physical fitness and determination from the adventure seekers who attempt it. We reach a maximum elevation of 5388 meters at the base camp which means that the trek requires proper consideration for altitude sickness.
 

Kanchenjunga expeditions in Nepal are most enjoyable from late March to late May. The weather is gorgeous and the views are breathtaking. Rhododendrons bloom along the KBC trail, enhancing the romantic atmosphere of the trek. Typically, the sky is clear and the views are breathtaking. As there are no snowfalls or rains in the Kanchenjunga region, the trail route is ideal for trekking. With a certain level of fitness, anyone can take part in the KBC trek and make it a lifetime memory. 

 

CLIMBING MT KANCHENJUNGA

Climbing Mount Kanchenjunga is regarded as a difficult mountaineering adventure than Mt. Everest Expedition. The ascent to the summit of Kanchenjunga is a tricky and challenging one as the mountaineer and submitters need to prepare for the risk of falling ice and avalanche. It is highly recommended to plan and head to climb Mt Kanchenjunga with professional climbing guides and expedition leaders. Weather, climate and high altitude can go wrong anytime in the Himalayas, hence it is recommended to climb the extreme eight-thousanders mountains with highly experienced climbing Sherpas and guides

 

Technical characteristics of the expedition

*Climbing Kanchenjunga is intricate mixed climbing at first and then later involves one of the longest horizontal climbs above 8,000 metres, making it a very demanding mountain that requires well planned logistics and a good, strong support. Probably that is why, despite being the 3rd highest mountain in the world, Kanchenjunga sees very little traffic.


*The expedition lasts nearly ten weeks, so you should take into account the changing weather conditions. Before the final departure, make sure to be prepared for snowstorms, as during the summer monsoon season there is heavy snowfall. In the winter, the snowfall is less burdensome. Nevertheless, the weather at Kanchenjunga can be quite unpredictable.


*The Kanchenjunga ascent is a tricky one – you need to be prepared for the risk of falling ice or avalanche. Apart from the weather dangers, the air is extremely thin at such high altitudes, which further obstructs the climb. It is imperative to have a reliable, professional support in such harsh conditions.
