Mount Gyachung Kang Expedition
Duration: 49 Nights / 50 Days
Altitude: 7,952m
Location: Everest Region

Mount Gyachung Kang is a mountain in the Mahalangur Himal, a subrange of the Himalaya, and is the highest peak between Cho Oyu (8,201 m) and Mount Everest (8,848 m). It lies on the border between Nepal and Tibet. As the fifteenth highest peak in the world, it is also the highest peak that is not an eight-thousander; hence it is far less well-known than the lowest of the eight-thousanders, which are only about 100 m (328 ft) higher.

The mountain was first climbed on April 10, 1964 by Y. Kato, K. Sakaizawa and Pasang Phutar and on the next day by K. Machida and K. Yasuhisa. The north face was first climbed in 1999 by a Slovene expedition and was repeated by Yasushi Yamanoi in 2002. This expedition starts from Lukla after 30 minutes scenic flight from Kathmandu.Then we commence trek to Phakding by crossing small village chaurikharka and Ghat and we continue trek to Namche Bazzar.
