Climbing Mount Kanchenjunga is regarded as a difficult mountaineering adventure than Mt. Everest Expedition.
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 translates to “Five treasures of the snow” which refer to the five summits that make up the peak. Kanchenjunga is considered to be one of the most majestic massifs in the world and the sight from the base camp is a truly memorable experience. The three-week long trek with tricky trails is considered difficult and demands physical fitness and determination from the adventure seekers who attempt it. We reach a maximum elevation of 5388 meters at the base camp which means that the trek requires proper consideration for altitude sickness.
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.
