It is one of the huge mountains mass, many satellite peaks rise from its narrow icy ridges. It is situated on the border of Nepal and Sikkim just 46 miles North-West of Darjeeling. It is the most eastward massif 8,000 peak of the Himalayan. The peak composes of four summits and four different routes to summit the peak with its both south and east side offering opportunities for new routes. It is also believed that the east side of the South summit is most difficult and far face route whereas Yalung Kang is 8,420m high and some people classified it as a separate 8,000m peak.
First Westerner who explored the Kanchenjunga was the British Botanist JD Hooker, who had visited the area twice in 1848, 1849 .Exploration of the Skim, Side of the peak continued with both British and Pundit explores mapping and Photographing until 1899. In that year a party was led by Douglas fresh filed made a circuit of Kanchenjunga and produced what is still one of the most authoritative maps of the region. The Japanese expedition took the challenge and mounted expeditions in 1973, 1974 and 1974 during the ascended of the Yalung Kang. A German Expedition ascended Yalung Kangin 1975 and in 1977 an Indian army team climbed the second successful expedition to the main peak of Kanchenjunga. Its North Face route is surely the safest, even though not easiest. Ascend of Kanchenjunga start from a Charming Base Camp in the meadows of Panorama (5,180m). First challenge of this trek is to fix lines start up 9,00m of complicate mixed climbing to the North Col. It offers us the most challenging climbing of the expedition but by using Sherpa support and oxygen you can move at a systematically slow velocity higher and higher up the mountain. It is highly satisfying climb for the all the expert climbers.
