KUSUM KANGARU CLIMBING – 6,369 M

Kusum Kangaru is a three summit peak in the Khumbu region. Kusum Kangaru means ‘Three Snow White Gods’ in the local Sherpa language. On the Jiri – Everest Base Camp Trek, one of the first snow giant that we come across is the Kusum Kangaru.

Our trek starts in Lukla and we reach the base camp of the peak on the eighth day of our trek. For the next five or six days we make preparations for the ascent. Climbing Kusum Kangaru requires a certain level of technical expertise and some previous climbing experience.
