Kanchenjunga Expedition

Kanchanjunga is the third highest mountain in the world and sits astride the Nepal/Sikkim border. It was first climbed by G. Band, Evans & J. Brown in 1955. In keeping with its name "five treasure houses of the great snows" the Kanchenjunga Himal is a grand collection of shapely spires. It is unique in as much as it is buttressed north and south as well as east and west by mountains of equal stature. This multi-topped massif comprises of four summits. Main Summit, Middle Summit, South Summit & Yalung Kang or West Summit, each one measuring over eight thousand meters. Way back in 1848/49 a great British botanists. J.D. Hooker, made two commendable trips to make an almost complete circuit of the Kanchenjunga range.He came within twenty two kms of the peak itself, but it was only in 1955, that a British expedition finally made its summit. There are four different routes to the mountain peak with both its south and east side providing opportunities for new routes. The east flank of the South Summit is believed to be by far the most difficult face route.
