Mt. Kanchenjunga Expedition

The third highest mountain in the world, Once mistakenly thought to be the highest mountain in the world, Kanchenjunga is in fact the third highest and has five prominent peaks which it is named after. Kanchenjunga is Sikkimese means “Five treasures of the Great Snow”. Located in far Eastern part of Nepal, the other side of the mountain lies in Sikkim, India. The five peaks are Kanchenjunga main 8,586m, Yalung Kang 8,505m, Kanchenjunga West 8,420m, and the Twin Peaks both 8,476m. The mountain lies 128km east of Everest. Although plans were afoot to climb Kanchenjunga as early as 1882, it was only in 1905 that the first attempt was made. Alister Crowley was the first to make his way up the Yalung glacier. A british expedition led by Charlie Evans finally succeeded in 1955. On 25th May of that year, two British, George Band and Joe Brown reached the summit. However, they stopped five vertical feet below the summit as the peak is considered sacred by the Sikkimese. Ang Phurba Sherpa became the first Nepali to climb the peak on 14th May 1980.
