Mt Kanchenjunga (8586m) is the third highest peak in the world. Located at the eastern part of Nepal, this fascinating peak is one of the popular but untouched and less touristic peak of Nepal. The name “Kanchenjunga” is delivered from the Tibetan word  'Kanchen' and 'Dzonga'  translated means "The Five Treasures of the Great Snows", as it contains five peaks, Kanchenjunga I (8586m), Kanchenjunga West (8505m), Kanchenjunga South (8494m) and Kangbachen (7903m).  This fascinating expedition destination is famous for its untouched natural landscape and cultural heritage of the inhabitants.

Kanchenjunga Expedition is a massive mountain mass, and many satellite peaks rise from its narrow icy elevations. The Expedition is the most easterly of the great 8,000 meter peaks of the Himalaya. 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 North Col followed by a not too technical steady 1500m ascent to the summit. Commencing this delighted expedition trek into the eastern Himalayan region of Nepal is flourished with both natural and cultural beauty along with adventurous and exotic trekking trail. Commence this charming mighty Himalayas and gather the experience of the life time.
