◊Kanchanjunga expedition south side 8,586M)

Kanchenjunga; Standing at 8586m). Kanchenjunga is the third highest peak in the world and 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, who 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. 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, 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. When they had climbed Yalung Kang, a German Expedition climbed Yalung Kang in 1975, and an Indian army team also mounted the second successful expeditions to the main peak of mount Kanchenjunga.

My country Nepal

My country Nepal is surrounding by two countries ,China lies in the east side and west, north and south is cover by India. It is in the northern hemisphere. It has three geographical zones. Himalayan, Mountainous and tarai. We have monsoon climate. It is very cold and dry in winter and hot, stormy and rainy in summer. It is rich in natural beauty and resources. It has long and wide rivers like koshi, Gandaki, and Karnali.We have large lakes like Rupa, Begnas, and Rara etc.Like-wise we have green valleys, lovely water falls etc. It is rich in religious and historical heritages.Lumbini, Gorkha, Janakpur, Kathmandu are the famous examples.

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

People of many    castes and religions leave here. About hundred languages are spoken. Our popular foods are dal bhat, dhindo, gundurk etc. dashain, tihar,losar,Id etc. are the most popular festivals. They observe these festivals very happily.Most people are farmers. They grow rice, corn, wheat,millet,barley,potato etc. some people in the cities are businessmen. Some have industries. They are very laborious and polite.

Due to the reach in natural resources, tourists love to visit your country. They can see endangered birds and animals here. They can see natural beauty, too 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, from today we have to aware all of the citizenship of country. Give to education equally both men and women, government should have to bring advance program and help citizen. And by providing different facilities which gives benefit to both citizen and government.

Nepal is a beautiful country. So we have to publish it all over the world which directly or indirectly helps to attract tourist and we can control our economic condition. Success is achieved by developing our strengths, not by eliminating our weaknesses.
