Kanchenjunga Expedition

Star Adventure Asia Treks offers Kanchenjunga Expedition:
Kanchenjunga, Peak IX of the Indian Survey, is the most easterly of the 8,000m peaks, standing on the border between Nepal Sikkim. There are a number of subsidiary summits, at least three over 8,000m: the south summit - occasionally called Kanchenjunga II - was given a unique designation (peak VIII) by the Indian survey. The central (between the south and main tops) and west summits are both over 8,400m, the west (Yalung Kang ) having been the specific object of several expeditions.

Range, is the third highest mountain in the world (after Mount Everest and K2), with an elevation of 8,586 metres (28,169 ft.). Kanchenjunga translated means "The Five Treasures of Snows", as it contains five peaks, four of them over 8,450 metres. The treasures represent the five repositories of God, which are gold, silver, gems, grain, and holy books. Kanchenjunga is called Sewalungma in the local Limbu language, translates as 'Mountain that we offer Greetings to'. Kanchenjunga or Sewalungma is considered sacred in the Kirant religion. Three of the five peaks (main, central, and south) are on the border of North Sikkim district of Sikkim, India and Taplejung District of Nepal, while the other two are completely in Taplejung District. Nepal is home to the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area Project run by the World Wildlife Fund in association with Government of Nepal. The sanctuary is home to the Red Panda and other montage animals, birds and plants. India's side of Kanchenjunga also has a protected park area called the Khangchendzonga National Park.
