Kusum Kanguru Peak lies in the Khumbu region that forms a border between Hinku valley in the north and Dudhkoshi valley in the south. The name suggests ‘three snow white gods’ in Tibetan language. The peak is an impressive rock and ice peak with three summits of which north face summit is more exciting. This peak can be climbed from two sides: one is from the north ridge and the second one is from South East Ridge from Hinku Valley side. Kusum Kanguru peak climbing is the challenging and adventurous from both possible routes and is suited for those who have enough alpine mountaineering experience. Kusum Kanguru peak offers the fantastic panoramic view of the Himalayas like Mt. Everest (8848m.), Cho-Oyu (8201m.), Lhotse (8516m.), Makalu (8463m.), Nuptse (7855m.) Thamserku, Amadablam and Kwongde etc.
The journey to the Kusum Kanguru peak starts from Lukla after the 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu. Along with the climbing experience and the views from the summit, the trekking to the base camp of the peak adds further pleasure to the trekkers. From Lukla you follow the trekking trail of Everest base camp up to Manjo. Then you leave the EBC trekking trail and move towards the east – south and from there it takes two days to reach the base camp of the Kusum Kanguru. On the way you can explore the culture and lifestyle of the Sherpa people. You traverse through the forest of rhododendron and pine where you can explore various types of the flora and fauna and wildlife. The best seasons to go for Kusum Kanguru peak climbing are spring and autumn.
Walking through the Solu Khumbu visit Namche Bazaar; explore Khumjung village and the sweeping views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Amadabla, Khangtega and Thamserku.
