◊Kanchenjunga expedition south side (8,586 m)

Kanchenjunga; Standing at 8586m). Kanchenjunga is the third highest peak in the world. Also it is the second highest in Nepal. It was first climbed by a British team in 1956. The peak consists of four summits. The west summit, Yalung Kang,820m high, and some people classify it as a separate 8000m peak. Kanchanjunga expedition south side (8,586m).

The first westerner to explore Kanchenjunga was a British botanist J.D. Hooker. He visited the area twice in 1848 and 1849. Exploration from the Sikkim side of the peak was continued by the British explorers mapping and photographing until 1899. Here, in that year a party led by Douglas Fresh Field made a circuit of Kanchenjunga and produced what is still one of the most authentic maps of the region.

Exploration continued, mostly from the Sikkim side, starting from Darjeeling in British India. One of the major contributors to Western knowledge about the region was Dr. A.M Kellas, who later died in Tibet during the approach of the 1921 Everest expedition. German expeditions attempted on several occasion to the peak like 1929, 1930. And again in 1931, but all failed .When the Sikkim entrance was closed, Nepal entrance was still open. Then, a team in 1955 led by Dr. Charl as Evans approached the peak via the Yalung Glacier.

The Japanese then took up the challenge and mounted expeditions in 1967, 1973 and 1974. Also, when they had climbed Yalung Kang, a German Expedition also climbed Yalung Kang in 1975. Finally, an Indian army team also mounted the second successful expeditions to the main peak of mount Kanchenjunga.

My country Nepal

Nepal is a very beautiful country. It is also a landlocked country. China lies in the east side of the country. Likewise, India in west, north and south. It lies in the northern hemisphere. Our country has three geographical zones. They are Himalayan, Mountainous and Terai. Here, we have monsoon climate. It is very cold and dry during winter. And hot, stormy and rainy in summer. Furthermore, it is rich in natural beauty and resources. Here are long and wide rivers. Such as Koshi, Gandaki, Karnali, etc. Moreover, here are large lakes also. Like Rupa, Begnas, Rara, etc. Likewise, we have green valleys, lovely water falls, etc. Similarly, it is rich in religious and historical heritages. Lumbini,  Janakpur, Kathmandu are the famous examples.

Nepal has highly diverse and rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has many mountains. It includes eight of the world’s ten highest mountains. This also includes the highest  mountain Sagarmatha. It is known as Mount Everest in English. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. It contains over 240 peaks. They are more than 20,000 ft. (6,096 m) above sea level.

People of many castes and religions live here. About hundred languages are spoken  here. Our popular foods are dal bhat, dhindo, gundurk etc. Similarly, Dashain, Tihar, Lhosar, Id etc. They are the most popular festivals. We celebrate these festivals very happily. Most  of the people are farmers. They grow rice, corn, wheat, millet, potato etc. Some people in the cities are businessmen also.  Likewise, some have industries. Therefore, people living here are very laborious.

Nepal is rich in natural resources. So, tourists love to visit our country. They can see endangered birds and animals here. Also, they can enjoy natural beauty. So, tourism is our potential industry.

Nepal is small but rich in natural resources. Although it is poor by economic condition. Nepal is developing country. To develop soon,  we have to aware all the citizen. We must provide education equally. To both men as well as women. Government should bring advance program. This may help citizen in development process. And, provide different facilities to citizen. And it’ll give benefit to citizen. Finally, it’ll help the  government also.

Nepal is a beautiful country. So, we have to publish it all over the world. And it’ll help to attract tourist. In this way, we can control our economic condition. Therefore, we can achieve success by developing our strengths.
