Printer Version Page

Mount Kanchenjunga is the third highest peak on the planet with an elevation of 8,586m and is geographically located along the Nepal India border in the Himalayas. Kanchenjunga is regarded as one of the most challenging and rewarding peak to climb. The peak consists of four main summits: Kanchenjunga main, Kanchenjunga south, Kanchenjunga west and Kanchenjunga central. Until 1852, Kanchenjunga was assumed to be the highest mountain in the world. It was first climbed by British expedition team led by Joe Brown and George Band in 1955.
Besides the expedition part, this expedition boasts of varied ecological zones ranging from subtropical land to glacial wilderness. Mighty Kanchenjunga glacier is the most famous attraction of Kanchenjunga. Great valleys, encircled by high peaks, are other features of the trek. The trail explores the area around Kanchenjunga where you can see a wide range of scenery from lush, tropical jungles to Rhododendron, Chestnut and Oak forests and the alpine zone at higher altitudes. You can witness a range of Nepalese cultures and life-styles from Rai and Limbus to Tibetan Buddhist villages.
