Mt. Kanchenjunga (8595m) is situated in the eastern part of Nepal. It was climbed by a British Team in 1956. It is a huge mountain mass and many satellite peaks rise from its narrow icy ridges. It is located on the border of Nepal and Sikkim, just 46 miles North West of Darjeeling. It is most easterly of the great 8000m peaks of the Himalaya. The peak consists of four summits. The west summit, Yalung Kang is 8420m high and some people classify it as a separate 8000m peak. Three first Westerner first explored Kanchenjunga, the British Botanist JD Hooker, who visited the area twice in 1848 and 1849. Exploration of the skim, side of peak continued with the both British and pundit explores mapping and photographing until 1899. In that year, a party led by Douglas fresh field made a circuit of Mt. Kanchenjunga and produced what is still one of the most authoritative maps of the region. The Japanese took up the challenge and mounted an expedition in 1976, 1973, & 1974 during which they climbed Yalung Kang. A German expedition climbed Yalung Kang in 1975 and in 1977 an Indian army team mounted the second successful expedition to the main peak of Mt. Kanchenjunga. The first challenge is to fix lines up 9000 m of intricately mixed climbing to the North Col. This provides the most challenging climbing of the expedition. Using Sherpa support and oxygen, you can move at a systematically slow velocity of higher & higher of the mountain.
