Trip Overview

Kusum Kanguru Peak Climb, standing height at 6360 metres in the Mahalangur Himalayan range of Khumbu Pasang Lhamu municipality of Solu Khumbu district in Nepal. It is also known as Kusum Kangguru, Kusum Kangru, Kusum Kang, Kusum Khangru, Kusumkhang Karda, Kusu or Mount Kanguru. Its name, Kusum Kanguru, means "Three Snow-White Gods" in the Sherpa language, which refers to the triple summit of the mountain. The first successful ascent of the main summit was made by Bill Denz of New Zealand on October 07, 1981, climbing the southwest buttress (west face), and descending the northwest flank. Denz did not only realise the first ascent, but also the first solo ascent and the first traverse of Kusum Kanguru. Five days later, on October 12, 1981, a Japanese team made the second ascent via the southeast face.

The usual ascent to the Kusum Kanguru Peak marvelous and it is depending on the condisions but it is difficult to climb. Only experience climbers should attempt this climbing route, though it is particially saved with fixed ropes. The summit consists of two summit pyramids, the north face and the south face.The main north-south ridge of Kusum Kanguru forms the border between the Dudh Khosi to the west and the Hinku Valley to the east. The mountain is the main source of the Kusum Khola (or Thado Koshi Khola) which flows westward to merge into the Dudh Khosi at the village of Thado Koshi.
