THE KANGCHENJUNGA ADVENTURE Smythe 2000 Paperback

Detailed Product Description
2000. 464 pp, photos. This is the story of one of the first attempts to climb that great Himalayan peak, Kangchenjunga. Known to local people as 'The Five Treasures of Snow', Kangchenjunga, which rises to 28,208 ft., is the third highest mountain in the world.

Seen from afar it seems to float serenely above the clouds. But to reach the summit means a death-defying battle against the elements, biting cold winds, barrages of snow and, worst of all, terrifying avalanches that sweep constantly across entire faces of the mountain.

Francis Sydney Smythe mobilized this expedition which marched through tropical Sikkim into 'Unknown Nepal' by way of Kang La, a 16,000 ft. pass and then set up a base camp, ready for the attempt. New paperback.
