Kanchenjunga Expedition

Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), the third highest mountain in the world, literally means "The Five Treasures of the Snow". Located in far-eastern Nepal, it demarcates the country's eastern frontier with India in the east and the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China in the north. It is an enormous mountain mass with many satellite peaks rising from its narrow icy ridges. The Kanchenjunga region is, perhaps, one of the most beautiful in the country adorned as it is with breathtaking landscape, glorious mountain vistas with a number of over 7,000-m peaks soaring to the sky, and a large variety of flora and fauna, some of which are endangered. The area is basically made up of lush alpine grasslands, rocky outcrops, dense sub-tropical and temperate forests, and a number of low river valleys.

The mountain was successfully scaled by a British expedition back in 1955 from the Indian (Sikkim) side. However, as a mark of respect, the expedition stopped a few feet short of the summit and did not step on it as the local people consider the peak to be sacred, thus setting a trend that is honored till this day.

Sir John Hunt, who led the expedition to Everest in 1953 that saw Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey being the first humans to conquer the world's tallest peak, has described Mt. Kanchenjunga as a mountain more difficult and dangerous to climb than even Everest itself.
