Mount Kanchenjunga is the world’s 3rd highest mountains and 2nd highest in  Nepal standing at  8,586m/ 28,169 ft. Situated on the Nepal-Sikkim ( India) border, which is in Eastern Nepal.

Kanchenjunga climbing expedition is organized from Nepal side due to the availability of logistic supports, accessibility and restrictions on the climb up to its summit top from Sikkim ( India) side. In fact, there are five peaks of Mt. Kanchenjunga, 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 and some people categorize it as a separate 8000m peak.

Kanchenjunga Conservation Area Project run by the World Wildlife Fund in association with the government of Nepal lies in the Kanchenjunga region. Kanchenjunga Conservation Area is itself a sanctuary for the Red Panda and many species of birds and plants. India's side of Kanchenjunga ( Sikkim)  also has a protected park area called the Khangchendzonga National Park.

Mount Kanchenjunga is a  huge mountain mass, and many satellite peaks rise from its narrow icy ridges. The climb is technical, even along the normal route but it is extremely interesting to climb with technical and intricate mixed rock and ice climb to the South  Col. The views are stunning both from the Base Camp as well as during entire climb of South Col.

Mount Kanchenjunga Expedition begins with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Bhadrapur and then overland drive to the trekking starting point passing through remote hill villages, where few visitors often trek on this off the beaten trail, as the walking progress leading to its classic south base camp. From the base camp, our adventurous feat leads to ascent the summit of Mt. Kanchenjunga. After the successful summit, we climb down and trek back safely to reach Khandenba where we catch land transport up to Bhadrapur and next day we take the flight back to Kathmandu.
