Once assumed to be the highest mountain in the world, Kanchenjunga, meaning ‘five treasures of the high snow’ is located between Nepal and India. This magnificent mountain was first climbed in 1955 by Joe Brown and George Band of the British Kanchenjunga Expedition– 50 years after the first expedition made an attempt in climbing Kanchenjunga in 1905.
At 8586 metres, Kanchenjunga is the 3rd highest mountain in the world yet sees very little traffic. As the most remote 8000 metre mountain, the approach on the Kanchenjunga expedition takes you to the eastern border of Nepal, trekking through unspoiled and remote areas in the Arun valley before arriving at the basecamp.
Climbing Kanchenjunga is intricate mixed climbing at first and then later involves one of the longest horizontal climbs above 8000 metres making it a very demanding mountain that requires well planned logistics and a good, strong support.
