Kangtega ExpeditionThe Snow Saddle is another beautiful mountain, which rises majestically to a saddle shaped summit from the Khumbu and Hinku Valley and sits next to another prominent mountain Thamserku to the north. We take about a week to reach the Kangtega base camp situated at the bottom of the Kangtega Ice-Fall, which resembles with the infamous Khumbu Ice Fall of Mt. Everest. Setting up our base camp at 5,182m.


Though an obvious route up the mountain would be to follow the Ice Fall, we have to go for the rock face leading to a ridge around 6,070m. and rappel down for about 70m. to reach at the top of the icefall to avoid possible icefall hazards. Our approach to this mountain is start from Lukla toward Dudhkoshi River to the Base Camp of Kangtega.
