Kangtega Expedition Overview
Kangtega Expedition peak is also known as ‘The Snow Saddle’ which rises majestically to a saddle-shaped summit from the Khumbu and Hinku valley of the Everest region.
Kangtega peak is one of the most significant peaks standing next to ‘Thamserku’ to the north.
We start our approach to Kangtega Expedition from Lukla, move towards Dudhkoshi River onto its base camp. It usually takes around 2 weeks to get to the base camp at the bottom of the Kangtega ice-fall. We have an obvious route up to the ice-fall; however, the route involves us to reach towards the rock leading to a ridge around 6,070 meters. We incline 70 meters downwards to reach the top of the ice fall to avoid ice-fall hazards.
While we try our level best to follow through the Kangtega Expedition Peak itinerary, the adventure travel in the remote mountain region is unpredictable and involves high risk. Therefore, our expedition leader has power to amend the itinerary if he thinks it’s necessary due to safety concerns.

Each and every person have some wills and that depends on their opinion and thinking.According to other our thinking was little bit different from them and we were thinking for some adventurous Expedition somewhere of Nepal throughSkyline Treks & Expedition and our selection was Kangtega Expedition to the elevation of 6782 meter known as snow saddle of the mountain.We initiate our journey with the aesthetic valley as Khumbu and Hinku.During our treks we found it is the most Venus mountain among 6000 meter and gigantic scenery of its rises splendidly.After Khumbu and Hinku we sat to another eminent Mountain as Thamserku to the north.When we hold out at base camp of 5182 meter we saw the sensational glimpse of Hinku glacier including ice fall which was the superb scene.To be safe from ice fall somewhere we tied our body with rope and ascend through straight rock ways that create little scarceness to us but we did it so well.The outstanding view we saw at the altitude of 6400 meter is the ridge of the mountain before sun set,glorious mountain views and the blue sky changed in to golden color incorporate deeply in red as crimson.When we saw those views atKangtega Expedition at that moment we all felt we are in paradise surrounded by snowy Mountain.Conclude thanks all the team ofSkyline Treks for their well management from the starting to end.We don't have more words to praise about the renowned and established company. .
