Kanjerawa Himal (6612 meters), which lies in Dolpa district inside the Shey Phoksundo National Park, is one of the most beautiful mountains in western Nepal. The mountain is locally popilar as Gangchhenralwa Himal. Gangchhen means a big mountain, while Ralwa means horse’s mane in local dialect. The mountain resembles a horse’s neck with mane. The mountain, which sits on the right side of the Phoksundo Lake, is the second tallest peak in Dolpa. Though many attempts have been made to climb the mountain, there is no evidence of any climber making it to the top. Kanjerawa expedition is one of the challenging trekking routes and Duke Nepal Adventure offers this expedition at best rate.
Furthermore, Kanjerawa Himal Explore and Study Expedition 2016 recently explored climbing routes in this beautiful mountain with the support of Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) and Dolpa District Development Committee, among others. After a month of complex study, we succeeded in discovering the base camp (4,506 meters) and safe climbing route. The expedition also came to a conclusion that this mountain could be climbed safely and easily from the south ridge as compared to other sections. Despite bad weather, we successfully climbed the second summit of Kanjerawa (6,426 meters). We also concluded that it is not difficult to get to the main summit (6612 meters) from the second summit.
Duke Nepal Adventure offers this trekking at reasonable rate to our valued customers.
