Kanchenjunga expedition is the next breath-taking adventure trip to Himalaya peak. As it is the world’s third highest peak of the world with the height of 8586 meters after Mount Everest and Mount K2 as well as Nepal’s second highest. The name “Kanchenjunga” is delivered from the Tibetan word ’Kanchen’ and ‘Dzonga’ translated means “The Five Treasures of the Great Snows”, represent the five repositories of God, which are gold, silver, gems, grain, and holy books with its five peaks.
Kanchenjunga is located on the border between Nepal and Sikkim and it is very remote attracting relatively few trekkers and therefore it retains much of its pristine beauty, mystery, and charm. As a respect to the beliefs of the Sikkimese, who hold the summit sacred, they stop a few feet short of the actual summit and this has developed to a tradition followed by successful summit parties since then. Kanchenjunga is called Sewalungma in the local Limbu language, translates as ‘Mountain that we offer Greetings to’. Kanchenjunga or Sewalungma is considered sacred in the Kirant religion.
In the Kanchenjunga Expedition, the North Face route is definitely the safest, although not the easiest. The climb of Kanchenjunga begins from a charming base camp in the meadows of Panorama at 5,180 m. Fixing the challenging lines up 900 m of intricately mixed climbing to the North Col and after you can begin the long process of establishing three camps up the long and complicated North ridge. Using Sherpa support and oxygen, you can move at a systematically slow velocity higher and higher up the mountain. This is a highly satisfying climb for the expert Climbers.
If you can walk 5 miles a day and are in good aerobic shape (with a doctor’s approval), you can do fine and make it. The actual trekking is on mostly level ground with a few sections of steep hillsides – up and down. You should not carry more than a light day pack with a jacket, water and snacks. However, it is the altitude that creates the main issues. That said, the better shape you are in, the more you will enjoy the overall experience.
There’s no specific training needed if you are reasonably fit. If you are completely sedentary, then yes some cardiovascular training would be recommended. Stair climbing or hill walking will get most people ready. Remember you’ll be walking up and down rough paths for 8-12 days. You’ll be at altitude too which will make things much harder. Having a good level of fitness will help you enjoy your trek more and always remember, it’s not a race!

It depends on your route, but EBC trek usually takes about 15 days. We suggest you not to go on a rush trek primarily due to the altitude. You will be landed in Lukla at (9,250 feet) and go to EBC at (17,500 f.). If you go too fast or rush your itinerary, you might get altitude sickness which is harmful.
