Kanchenjunga is the 3rd highest peak globally, stands extensive and tall at the height of 8586 meters. But the highest concerning fatality rate requires a fit physique and proper mountain climbing skills for the Kanchenjunga climbing. Mount Kanchenjunga is an eastern border between Nepal and Sikkim. Due to the fact, it is composed of 4 major peaks, namely the principal summit, middle summit, south summit, and the Yalung yang. From time to time, Yalung Yang seems separate from the other three mountains. The Yalung Yang climbed in 1975, whereas the main summit was in 1977 because of remoteness territory and tough ascension. Therefore, rated it as the least climbed peak among 8000 meters. Due to the least climbed mountain, you should have to be well-prepared and know about the Kanchenjunga trek before ascension.
Kanchenjunga Climbing routes.
The Kanchenjunga expedition begins with a flight either from Biratnagar to Suketar or a trip to Bhadrapur and drives towards Taplejung. Furthermore, it follows the villages and forests all the way into the Kanchenjunga Base Camp. It lies at an altitude of 4500 meters simultaneously, as some consider the northern route up to the mountain to be straightforward.
There is no such easy route as all the paths disclose due to avalanche and rockfall possibilities. Every step requires acclimatization, but prior climbing expertise is also essential. Following the strenuous trek to the base camp, the acclimatization procedure will conduct regularly. Although being properly acclimatized with the weather conditions and altitude issues, climbers will prepare to make the final attempt. So, it is compulsory to place up different camps to attempt the summit for the Kanchenjunga Expedition.
The 1st camp lies at the height of 6050 meters, whereas camp 2nd lies at 6800 meters. It requires spending a night or two, making a return to the base camp during the Kanchenjunga climbing. It is noteworthy for the proper acclimatization while setting up 3rd Camp at 7300 meters, and camp 4th lies at 7800 meters. Eventually, attempts to the summit. So, the climb to the summit from the base camp is a long tiring practice. Typically, the Kanchenjunga climbing ends with a retrace to Ghunsa, but it starts over another trail via col of Selele toward Tsaram. Besides, explore South Kanchenjunga Base Camp and expand a journey to Makalu via Lumba Sumba Pass. This whole expedition is an in a million, adventurous experience but requires almost 45- 50 days for completion.
