Kanchenjunga Expedition is a natural exploration at Kanchenjunga Conservation Area hand in hand. The vastitude and loftiness of Nepali Himalayan Range is, by all means, cognizant and celebrated to the whole world of mountaineering interest. The prospect of mountaineering activity in Nepal is simply lavish. One of the enticing yet equally taxing snow giants of the world, Mt. Kanchenjunga is a mountainous ornament of Nepal situated to the eastern limit on the border between Nepal and India. Giant in the sense that the elevation of Mt. Kanchenjunga reads 8586 meters tall from the level making it the third highest mountain in the world. Mt. Kanchenjunga is among the duly respected and regarded expedition peak of Nepal that has remained, for years, as one of the most sought after mountains in Nepal.
Joe Brown and George Band, the British Expedition members, were first to ascent the summit in May 25, 1955. An interesting tale of Mt. Kanchenjunga unfolds that until 1852 Kanchenjunga was celebrated as the highest mountain in the world. After a literal calculation based on measurements by Great Trigonometric Survey of India eventually registered Kanchenjunga as the third highest mountain in the world in 1856. The literal implication of name Kanchenjunga reads “The Five Treasures of Snows”. “Five” is attributed to the five summits of Kanchenjunga and “Treasures” implies the five repositories of God; gold, silver, gems, grain, and holy books. The five summits are Kanchenjunga Main, Kanchenjunga West (Yalung Kang), Kanchenjunga Central, Kanchenjunga South, and Kangbachen.
