Kanjiroba Expedition Overview

Mountain Kanjiroba is a distinctive peak situated in the Dolpo region. It is an adventurous climb due to its undiscovered trails. The experience through the high level of alpine adventure and extreme wilderness are enthralling. Climbers and trekkers can scale the height of 6883m during the Kanjiroba Expedition. Overcoming the summit has become a popular trend. This is due to its unexplored and challenging route for trekkers/climbers.

The route starts in Juphal, and after passing via Jopala Khola, it ends in Kanjiroba Base Camp after summiting the peak. The course comprises interesting passes, waterfalls, villages, wildlife, flora, and fauna. The trekkers experience the genuine customs of the surrounding inhabitants.
