JONGSONG PEAK EXPEDITION ( FROM TIBET)

JONGSONG PEAK EXPEDITION ( FROM TIBET)

(32 NIGHTS/ 33 DAYS )

overview

Mt. Jongsong (7,462m / 24,482 ft.) is a popular expedition peak in the Janak section of the Himalayan ranges. Dominated by the 3rd highest peak in the world, the Mt. Kanchenjunga, the Jongsong peak is known for its tri-junction attribute for India, Nepal and China. This spectacular rise in the Himalayas is also known as ‘Three Countries Peak’. Until 1931, it was the highest climbed peak in the world. The first successful ascent to the summit was in 1930, by a German expedition led by Gunther Dyhrenfurth. The Jongsong glacier and the northeast spur are the most appropriate climbing routes for the white mountain.

The Jongsong peak expedition from Tibet begins at Phurunba and ends at the same point and then there is a flight back to Kathmandu. There are a few tea houses and lodges on your way to the base camp. The villagers are mainly Sherpas following Hinduism and Buddhism and belonging to a variety of ethnic groups. The climb requires physical fitness and a thorough snow mountain climbing training. At Virgin Trails, we ensure that you enjoy the experience and the ecstatic feeling of being at the border of three countries at the same time during your Jongsong peak mountain tours.
