Mt. Kanchenjungha Expedition

Mt. Kanchenjungha ExpeditionKanchenjunga (8,586) is the third highest mountain in the world. It is located on the border of Nepal and Sikkim, just 46 miles northwest of Darjeeling. It is the most easterly of the great 8,000-meter peaks of the Himalaya.
It was first climbed by G. Band, Evans &J. Brown in 1955. From 1838 until 1849, it was believed to be the highest mountain in the world. It is an enormous moun tain mass, and many satellite peaks rise from its narrow icy ridges.

Though not successfully climbed until 1955, it was first attempted in 1905, but four members of those international parties were killed in an avalanche. As inspiring as Kanchanjunga’s beauty is that at least the first three parties to ascend the mountain never attempted the final few feet to the summit out of voluntary respect for the Sikkimese, who consider the summit sacred. The successful British expedition of 1955 set the standard by stopping a few feet short of the actual summit. There are four different routes to the mountain peak with both its south and east side providing opportunities for new routes. It is believed that the east flank of the South Summit is by far the most difficult face route
