Mount Kangtega Expedition

Mount Kangtega Expedition

(33 NIGHTS/ 34 DAYS )

overview

Mt. Kangtega (6,782m / 22,251ft.) popularly known as ‘The Snow Saddle’ is a one of nature’s successful endeavors of depicting serenity at its best. It saddle-shaped picturesque height is situated in the Khumbu and Hinku Valley region. The first successful ascent to the summit was made in 1963, however the first notable ascent was made in 1986 via the northeast buttress by Jay Smith, Mark Hesse, Craig Reason and Paul Wally Teare.

The Mt. Kangtega Expedition in Nepal begins at Lukla and ends at the same village on the way back to Kathmandu. On the way to the base camp there are a few stops at teahouses and the famous Namche bazaar. The prominent Kangtega sits right next to Thamserku(6,623m), another popular expedition peak to the east of Namche Bazaar, and the high base camp at 5,182m is set up at the bottom of the Kangtega Ice-fall. The breathtaking view of the skyline when the sky turns to crimson in the evening is one of the major objectives of the climb. The peak is among the most difficult six-thousanders with a number of technical obstacles on the route to the tip. Expeditions opting for the Mt. Kangtega Expedition 2019 would require extensive technical climbing training.
