Mount Kumbhakarana Expedition

Mount Kumbhakarana Expedition

(44 NIGHTS/ 45 DAYS )

overview

Mt. Kumbhakarna (7,710m / 25,300ft.) also known as Jannu, is a tall seven-thousander in the Himalayan region of Nepal. It looks like it has shoulders and lies only 11km in the western region of Kanchenjunga. The Kumbhakarna Peak is one of the most difficult summits to climb in the world. Jannu was first successfully climbed in 1962 by an expedition led by French alpinist Lionel Terray. The north face is known as the “Wall of Shadows”, and it is considered to be the most difficult route for the climb.

The Mount Kumbhakarna Expedition begins at Suketar and ends at Suketar on the way back. The structure of the peak is unique and unusual of how a seven-thousander normally looks. It demands overcoming of extremely difficult challenges with risks of slipping down steep ice-slopes. Trekkers would experience camping on a glacier and on the way to the base camp there are a number of villages and stops at teahouses. It is very important to acclimatize for the Mount Kumbhakarna 7710m. Expedition in Nepal. Novice climbers are advised to go through extensive white mountain climbing training and equipment training for technical climbing before the expedition.
