About your trip


It's the BIG one, so 2022 is it going to be the year you climb the world third highest mount and without all the queuing of Everest? We have a stunning team the help you attempt a summit bib for the "queen of the mountains"

Rising to a height of 8,586m, Mt Kanchenjunga, situated on the Nepal-Sikkim border, is the world’s third highest mountain. Meaning “Five Treasures of Snow” in Tibetan, the name Kangchenjunga refers to the mountain’s five peaks, four of which – Main Summit, Middle Summit, South Summit and West Summit (Yalung Khang) – are over 8,540m. The highest among these summits is the West summit with an altitude of 8,420m.

The first successful ascent of Kanchenjunga was made on May 25, 1955 by Joe Brown and George Band, both members of a British Expedition, who stopped a few feet short of the actual summit in deference to the beliefs of the Sikkimese who hold the summit sacred – a tradition that most successful summit parties have since then followed.
The North Face route is regarded as the safest, though not the easiest, while the east flank of the South Summit is believed to be the most difficult route.
