Trip Introduction

Kusum Kanguru, 6,367 meters, dominating the southern end of Charpati Himal separates the valley of the Dudh Koshi from the upper reaches of Hinku Drangka. This peak is a complex, triple summited mountain having at least five major ridges and faces. The north face of the main summit is the most spectacular one. Regarded as technically very challenging on all possible routes, Kusum Kanguru is an impressive rock and ice peak which forms the border between the Dudhkosi in the south and Hinku Valley to the north. Its name originating in Sherpa language means the Three Snow-White Gods. This climb is suggested only for participants who have enough alpine mountaineering experience.

This peak is one of the most difficult trekking peaks to climb and was first ascended in the autumn of 1979 by a Japanese team.
