In the Taplejung District of Nepal, Kanchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world behind Mt. Everest and K2. Translated it means, "the five treasures of snows" because it contains five peaks - four of which stand above 27,000 feet - the highest standing at 28,169 feet. Climbers face below freezing temperatures and impossible conditions that can bring even the most experienced to their knees...if not to their deaths. The Sikkimese people hold the summit sacred and to this day, summit parties will stoip short in honor of this tradition. Get ready to experience one of the most spectacular expeditions any extreme explorer can make.
