Kangchenjunga Climb

slide

Kangchenjunga is the 3rd highest mountain in the world after Everest and K2. Located on the Sikkim (India)-Nepal border as part of the Himalayan mountain range climbers had tried to explore the southern portals of Kangchenjunga even before Everest was discovered in 1852 to be the highest mountain in the world. The first foreigner to explore this region was Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker. Many climbers such as William Douglas Freshfield in 1999, the Swiss team-Jacob Guillarmod, Reymond etc, Paul Bauer in 1929 & 1931, Prof. Dyhrenfurth, in 1930, John Hunt in 1937, and finally Joe Brown, George Band and John Kempe reached to the summit of Kangchenjunga on 25th May 1955 by the Northwest Face route followed by Norman Hardie and Tony Streather the next day.

Our Kangchenjunga expedition will be from the Nepal side of the mountain setting up as many as VI camps above base camp for the summit push.

Our company director Natemba Sherpa successfully climbed Mount Kangchenjunga (8,586m/28,170 ft.) twice in 1982 and 1989, so having ourselves well knowledgeable about the mountain and the exact logistics involved make the expedition a success in the best possible way you can book the Kangchenjunga expedition with us in full confidence.

We have noted few probable notes regarding Kangchenjunga Climb expedition whether they could help you further prepare the expedition:

Length of Kangchenjunga Climbing Expedition
Our Kangchenjunga Expedition total duration is 56 days (Kathmandu to Kathmandu), this duration is planned for the overall expedition including for administrative formalities, approach to / fro Base Camp, acclimatization at Base camp, and above Base camp for the summit attempt etc….The daily waling /climbing / ascent duration depends on each camp basis, such as during duration for approach to Kangchenjunga Base camp in average is 5-6 hours, whereas from Base camp to Camp different camps is 4-7 hours in average and from Camp 5 to the summit is 8+ hours depending on each climber. The above average duration is just generalized, but the actual climbing duration depends on each climber.

Administrative Formality / climbing permit
There are quite lot of government formalities for obtaining the Kangchenjunga Climbing permit, and as a professional Mountaineering expedition organizer company we take every administrative formalities for Climbing Kangchenjunga seriously so that the member/client could enjoy a hassle free Kangchenjunga Climbing. We process the permits 3 months in advance, therefore you are requested to send the relevant documents (please print them, fill up, scan them & send us by e-mail along with a scan passport photograph):

For Leader of the Kangchenjunga Expedition need extra doc 
userfiles/Leader doc-Mountain Climb(4).doc
Risk & Release for each Kangchenjunga Expedition member
userfiles/Assumption of Risk & Release(3).doc

Difficulty of the Kangchenjunga Climb
This is another major question frequently asked. And the answer to this is rather simple; the difficulty of any mountaineering depends on your previous climbing experience, physical fitness, mental preparedness etc… Kangchenjunga Climbing is of course difficult not from technical part but due to its harsh weather conditions, high altitudes etc, though there are technical difficulties as well and technically this mountain is even more difficult than Everest, but we provide strong team of climbing sherpas to tackle with any problem for the expedition. There will be fixed ropes at difficult section of the climb to different camps to the summit for climb, so if you are bit careful about using your personal equipments such as you must not forget to cliff on your safety karabiners on fixed lines, step up your crampons carefully etc, the climb is not difficult, but for altitudinal adaptation, though the expedition is well planned in terms of proper acclimatization, at the same time it is important that you must have at least previous climbing / mountaineering experience for Kangchenjunga expedition and proper use of technical gears such as crampons, jumar, ice-axe etc., also physical exercise by running, long walking, cardio vascular exercises. It is also important that you have general check up with your doctor before coming on the expedition.

At an Emergency
MOUNTAIN CLIMB prides itself on being prepared for any emergency situation. Our guides / Sirdars are trained in first aid and can deal with most of the basic ailments that are associated with the Kangchenjunga Climbing expedition / mountaineering. When a serious emergency does occur, then outside help is needed and such rescues are expensive therefore every climber should have his or her own insurance arranged before coming to Nepal. It is advised that you buy the Insurance Policy right from the home Country through a reliable Insurance company covering medical, accidental and rescue evacuation. Please ensure with your insurance company whether they really cover the risk for such high altitude mountaineering expeditions such as for Kangchenjunga expedition.

Food safety & the types of food
Food safety to keep our expedition members is always a concern for us, therefore we brief you about the food safety before departure on an expedition. All food we take for Base camp use are freshly bought from the market, properly checked the date validity or freshness before we dispatch for the expedition and all our cooks and kitchen staffs are trained in cooking varieties of hygienically prepared foods and good taste.

During approach to/fro Base camp you will have your breakfast and dinner at your teahouse. We stop for lunch at one of the various trailside restaurants. And snacks are always easy to find. During your stay at Base Camp our well trained and experienced cook will prepare fresh and tasty meals and snacks. We will have plenty of food including the traditional Nepali meal Dal Bhat (rice, curry, and lentils), noodles, rice, potatoes, vegetables and soup and Nepalese versions of western food such as pizza and French fries too. There will be also various types of snacks such as biscuits, chocolates, nuts etc also special cakes prepared by our cook with plenty of drinks such as tea, hot chocolates, coffee, juice etc… And for the Full board expedition service food for higher camps above base camp will be various types of light / energy foods such as chocolate bars, dry fruits, biscuits, tea, coffee, sugar, whole meal packed food etc….

Drinking water during the Kangchenjunga expedition
During the expedition starting point to Base camp and Back to the finishing point your guide will provide you with all the water you need during your trek to Base Camp, though you may also buy bottled water on the trail, but we do not encourage much on this as the plastic bottles are difficult to dispose off and have become an environmental problem. During your stay at Base camp the water source is either from a small stream or snow melting that our cooks boil and 100% safe to drink or cooking. Above Base camp in the mountains the water source is from snow melting which is safe for drinking as well.

Equipment you should bring
Choosing the right equipment is very important especially for climbing. All group climbing equipments such as ropes, tents, snow bars, ice-screws, shovel, cooking pots are provided from Mountain Climb for full board expedition service, whereas you need to have enough personal clothes to stay warm and good gears for climbing or cool yet not over packed. Usually you will have warm days and very cold nights. Detailed information about the personal gear are available on request or briefly explained about the gear list section of the page.

Extra money to bring
Without knowing your proper service selection of the expedition either Full Board expedition service, Base camp service or any other services, it is next to impossible to justify the correct amount you would need to bring, but there will be always only little money that you can bring for personal expenses such as souvenirs, drinks, personal equipment etc... Therefore, we advise you on this after your chosen expedition service.

Experience of our guides / staffs
MOUNTAIN CLIMB has some of the most dependable and experienced guides / Climbing Sherpas. All of our guides / Climbing Sherpas have spent years climbing mountains and Kangchenjunga Climbing experience with many times to the Summit, so you can be confident in our staffs.

Accommodations & toilet facility
We provide a single room for Kangchenjunga expedition members in Kathmandu. During your approach to Kangchenjunga Base Camp one tent for 2 members will be provided whereas at  Base camp you will be provided a single tent with thick mattress and pillow to make your sleep comfortable and at Camp I and above you need to share one tent with another member which will be also warmer. There will be also a separate toilet and shower tent facility at Base Camp.

Environmental Responsibility
Our approach is to raise environmental awareness among Climbers making the Kangchenjunga Climb expedition an Eco-Kangchenjunga Expedition. We also give information to our valued clients on how to minimize maximum damage on the environment. We clean up and bring all our garbage back from Kangchenjunga Base Camp and from the mountain as far as possible produced during the expedition. Yearly we invest 3% of our net profit for the above purpose and furthermore, in participating in various social works in Nepal. We always heartily welcome and enchant your comments and suggestions for a better way to serve our customers.
