Description of the tour

Tour itinerary: Kathmandu → Phungling → Kathmandu

Yalung Kang, standing tall at 8,505m (8.505km), is the second tallest mountain within the Kanchenjunga massif. It falls entirely within the boundaries of Nepal. It is also called the “Kanchenjunga West” and lies in the northern part of the massif. The name “ Kanchenjunga” has been derived from four Tibetan words; ‘gangs’ which represents snow, ‘chen’ which represents the great, ‘mzod’ which represents treasure, and ‘inga’ which represents five.

All these words joined together to give the name ‘Kanchenjunga’, which means ‘the five treasures of the great snow’. It is believed that there are treasures of gold, stones, salts, medicines, and other valuables hidden within this mountain. There are three routes for the Yalung Kang Expedition from Nepal.
