These treks are suitable for any walker looking for something a little more challenging and energetic. They are a combination of some longer and shorter walks and hill-walking experience is desirable. The duration is usually from 10 to 15 days. Following the up and down terrain of Nepal and walking to higher elevations contrasts these treks to those in the easy classification. However, you will be rewarded for your efforts with spectacular close-up views of glaciers and of the high Himalayas. Although the terrain is not difficult, some vigorous hiking experience is useful.

Overview

Kanchenjunga Expeditions

The Kanchenjunga Expedition is a challenging mountain in Nepal and is the world’s third-highest peak. The peak’s massif contains four summits, three of which are over 8,000 metres above sea level. The highest peak is Kanchenjunga I, at 8,586 metres. The second highest peak is Kanchenjunga West at 8,505 metres. Kanchenjunga South is next at 8494 metres. Kangbachen is the lowest at 7,903 metres. Each summit represents an arm of a cross. Kanchenjunga is connected to the summits by four main ridges. 

Known as one of the ‘five treasures of the high snow,’ Kanchenjunga was once considered to be the tallest mountain in the world. George Band of the British Kanchenjunga Expedition were the first to climb this magnificent mountain in 1955 — 50 years after the first expedition attempted it in 1905.

The trekking route of Kanchenjunga is drained by Tamur River that meets Arun below Mulghat. Numerous glaciers feed the river. Nupchu, Lhonak, Chichima, Gimsung, Pyramid, Kanchenjunga, and Ramtang are the north glaciers of the main peaks.

Kanchenjunga myths and beliefs

Indians and Nepalese claim to have seen a mysterious creature on the slopes of the Kanchenjunga Expedition. A British expedition sighted a bipedal figure in 1925, which the locals described as the mountain’s demon. Another legend associated with the mountain is that of the valley of immortality. Tibetans call it Beyul Demoshong, and it is said to be hidden somewhere on Kanchenjunga’s snowy slopes.

Kanchenjunga Expedition technical

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 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.
