Trip Overview

Mount Kanjirowa Expedition (Unclimbed) is located at an elevation of 6612 m in the Dolpa area of Shey Phoksundo national park, with latitude 28°14'00" and longitude 82°52'35". This Himal is also known in Dolpa by its local name, Gangchhen Ralwa Himal. Gangchhen means "Big Mountain," and Ralwa means "Horse's Mane," according to the name's meaning. It got its name because when you look at the mountain, you can see the horse's neck and some straight lines on the mountain that seem like the horse's mane. 

Kanjirowa Himal is the second tallest peak in Dolpa and is located right on the Phoksundo Lake. However, the lack of accurate information about this peak has left climbers perplexed and has discouraged climbers from attempting the peak. According to a local source, the Japanese were the first to attempt to reach the peak of this Himal, however numerous foreign and national climbers followed suit subsequently. To date, no evidence of any climbers reaching the summit has been recorded.

The Firante Team's Kanjirowa Expedition begins with flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj. Then it's on to Juphal. After landing at Juphal's airstrip, we will start our trek with Sherpa Guides in a remote area with stunning scenery, sub-tropical and low alpine woods. Similarly, until we reach the Base Camp, we will have the option to visit religious and culturally interesting villages. Several endangered kinds of wildlife are likely to be encountered throughout our expedition. Furthermore, we will be exposed to the genuine culture of kind, accepting and hospitable locals.

We will gradually ascend from Kanjirowa Base Camp by setting up a large number of high camps and taking plenty of time for safe acclimatization. At first, we will choose a non-technical trail that often takes us through snow-covered walls. As we approach the peak of Kanjirowa Peak, 6,883m, our ascent gets more technical and difficult. Following a successful summit ascent, we will securely return to base camp and then hike back to Juphal. Our Kanjirowa Expedition Nepal adventure comes to a close with a connecting flight from Juphal to Nepalgunj and then returning back to Kathmandu.

We provide a Kanjirowa Expedition Package that includes logistical support, transportation, lodging and a professional mountain guide - everything we need to climb Kanjirowa Peak at a fair price. Kanjirowa Expedition prices are competitive in the sense that we ensure you get the best of everything. In Nepal, we would like to explore the Himalayas and engage in professional peak climbing. All climbers who wish to reach the top of Kanjirowa in Nepal should contact Firante to realize their most cherished ambition. We feel we are capable of handling any difficulty flawlessly and effectively during our excursion in Nepal.


Day 8: Rest Day

We will stop for a day at Gau Chaur before continuing on to the raised summit of Mt. Kanjirowa.  We will allow our bodies to adjust to the higher altitude and continue our expedition from tomorrow. 

Day 9: Trek from Gau Chaur – Thulo Palat 

The expedition into the severe woods begins from Gau Chaur. We'll pack our lunch and set out on our journey. The walk is tough, despite its short length. Most of the time, the three-hour trek climbs uphill through the jungle, with frequent stops on the leveled trail. We will arrive at the campsite in Thulo Palat, which is a large cave near the river, after 3 hours of constant walking through the bush.

Day 10: Trek from Thulo Palat – Bahiri Pudwa Khola Camp

We will arrive at Bahiri Puduwa Campsite after a three-hour hike through the jungle and Yarsa Gompa Fields beside the Jagdul River. The camp is located on a ridge in the center of the jungle.

Day 11: Trek from Bahiri Pudwa Khola Camp – Bhitti Puduwa

On Day 11, the Kanjirowa Expedition pursues the jungle track for three hours, largely on a moderate downhill and leveled trail to our Bhitti Puduwa campground. The campground is located in a low alpine woodland.

Day 12: Trek from Bhitti Puduwa – Kanjirowa Base Camp

From Bhitti Puduwa, you will trek to Mt. Kanjirowa base camp, from where your excursion will begin.

Day 13: Rest Day

Before moving forward, it's better to gain a good understanding of the mountains and improve your acclimatization. So today we'll just go exploring around Mt. Kanjirowa Base Camp. We will gain a little elevation and descend back to our Base Camp.

Day 14: Base Camp – High Camp

Slowing down as you gain altitude during peak climbing or an expedition is a must if you want to stay physically fit and complete the task. Therefore, today we'll trek to Kanjirowa High Camp, which is a few hundred meters above the Base Camp. 

Day 15: Acclimatization Day

We have another rest day at the High Camp, this time to explore the elevated regions and completely acclimate. Drink plenty of water and get plenty of rest before the big day in a few days.

Day 16: Trek to Camp I

As we climb higher, we will reach Kanjirowa Peak's Camp I. Slow and steady wins the race, so we're going slow so you can acclimate properly, take in the scenery and receive what you've come for. When we will first arrive at Camp I, we will proceed to explore the area and get some rest.

Day 17: Summit Day

Today will be our big day. Early in the morning, we will set out for Mt. Kanjirowa summit. We've acclimatized well, so scaling the summit just above 6000 meters shouldn't be too difficult. In terms of technical skills, the mountain does not necessitate a great deal of them. Basic alpine abilities, including as rope work, ice work and the usage of mountaineering equipment, are essential. The spectacular Himalayan peaks on our head level, Tibetan landscapes to the north and extensive valleys to the south are all visible from the summit. We will return to Mt. Kanjirowa Base Camp after reaching the top.

Day 18: Reserve Day

A reserve day will be required for extreme adventure vacations such as peak climbing and expeditions. The reserve day is set aside to prevent the rush if our adventurous excursion is hampered by bad weather or other factors. 

Day 19: Trek from Mt. Kanjirowa – Bahiri Puduwa

We're starting our trek back to Juphal today, after a successful summit of Mt. Kanjirowa. Today, we'll retrace our steps all the way to Bahiri Puduwa, a six- to seven-hour jungle trek.

Day 20: Trek from Bahiri Puduwa – Tallo Jagdul

We will retrace our step back to Tallo Jagdul on the route today. We will spend the night at the riverside campgrounds.

Day 21: Trek from Tallo Jagdul – Kaigaon

Today, we will continue walking back to Kaigaon on our retracing trail. We will stay in the camps for the night.

Day 22: Trek from Kaigaon – Tripurakot

Our trip continues on the retracing trail all the way to Tripurakot today.

Day 23: Trek from Tripurakot – Jhuphal

The expedition comes to a close on the final day in Juphal. Congratulations on ascending Kanjirowa, a stunning mountain in Nepal's rugged west Dolpo region.

Day 24: Flu from Jhuphal – Kathmandu via Nepalgunj

Because there are no direct flights from Jhuphal to Kathmandu, we will eat breakfast and catch an early morning flight from Jhuphal to Nepalgunj. We'll fly from Nepalgunj to Kathmandu on another flight. When you arrive in Kathmandu, you will be taken to your lodging. You might choose to relax in your hotel or take a stroll through Kathmandu's lively streets.

Day 25: Final Departure

Our Airport Representative will drop you off at the International Airport according to your flight schedule.

Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu

A Firante representative will meet you at Tribhuvan International Airport on the day of your arrival. You will be greeted and then transferred to a hotel in center of Kathmandu city. You can either rest in your hotel or visit the Firante office for additional details about the trip. In the evening, you will join us for a welcome dinner event that we have organized.

Day 2: Fight from Kathmandu – Nepalgunj

We'll fly from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj on a short flight today. The town of Nepalgunj is located in the western Terai which is close to the Indian border and the Bardia National Park. It serves as an important transportation center for Nepal's western, mid-western and far-western regions.

Day 3: Flight from Nepalgunj – Jhuphal then trek to Tripurakot

The day begins with a flight from Nepalgunj to Juphal in the early hours of the morning. We will land at Juphal Airport after a 35-minute flight. You will depart from Juphal's airstrips for Tripurakot, where you will spend the night. Tripurakot is considered to be one of the holiest places in Hinduism. The Devi Tripurasundari Temple is well-known and there are various myths concerning the location in Hindu holy scriptures.

Day 4: Trek from Tripurakot – Ghodakhor

The cultural attractions of today's trek will include numerous visits to actual rural communities like as Liku and Pahara, among others. We will arrive in Ghodakhor at the end of the day after winding through yak grazing grounds and yak herders' shelter.

Day 5: Trek from Ghodakhor – Hurikot

We will take the incline trail through the forests to the pastureland from Ghodakhor. The trail gradually ascends to the top of Balangra Pass from here. Our slow and steady trekking to the top of the pass will be followed by a trek to Hurikot via the settlement of Kaigaon on a leveled and downhill trail. The Baiji Magar’s, who practice Bon Buddhism, are the majority in Hurikot. 

Day 6: Trek from Hurikot – Takpoche

Today, the journey enters Shey Phoksundo National Park for the first time. The majority of today's walk will be spent on a jungle route. Toijum is reached after nearly an hour of trekking uphill and another hour on a leveled track through the bush. The Army Camp, which protects the preserved National Park and the wildlife within it, is 15 minutes’ walk via the settlement of Toijum. After passing through the Army Camp, we will have a short thirty-minute trek to reach Takpoche, where we will stay for the night.

Day 7: Trek from Takpoche – Gau Chaur

We'll begin our trek today by hiking uphill to Chheten Bada and then to Tang Tunge, a popular Yarsa Gompa Hunting Base Camp in the area. From there, a three-hour uphill climb via Phulbari along the Pani Palta River gets us to Gau Chaur. Gau Chaur is a mystery village where there is no human settlement at present. However, we will get to witness a lot of historic settlement remains and terraced fields.
