Khang Karpo 6646m, is one of the recently opened (2014) Trekking peaks in the Rolwaling Valley of Eastern Nepal. The mountain stands at the end of Ripimo Glacier on the borderline between Nepal and Tibet. We will use the North West ridge to the summit, which passes through numerous hanging Glaciers. The Climb to the Summit is challenging but more rewarding as it offers the closer view of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho-oyu, Shisha Pangma, Gyachung Khang, Nuptse, Cho-Garu (Melungtse) and many more Peaks around it.

The path to this mountain leads us through the Rolwaling valley – one of the off-beaten trekking routes of Eastern Nepal. Being the least explored region by tourists, it provides you with a quite unique trekking experience encountering nature in its virgin form. The Rolwaling Valley has equal religious value as it is believed that the Buddhist Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava) rested and meditated here for several months. It can be evidenced from the stone carvings and monasteries in the area.

We are proud to include that the Khang Karpo’s first Ascent was made by the team lead by our Director Mr. Nima Tenzing Sherpa with the fellow Climbing member Squash Falconer (UK), Alison Levine (US), Kath Staniland (UK), Gopal Shrestha, Phurba Tenjing Sherpa, Tsering Pemba and Lakpa Nurbu Sherpa (Nepal) in the year 2016.

We at Kaitu Expedition can assure the best possible expedition logistics support to ensure safe and successful climb under the leadership and guidance of professional experts with years of guiding experience. The mountain decides the rest. We believe that with our logistic support and experience coupled with your passion, determination and willpower, Kaitu Expedition can help make your dream come true with memorable experiences and amazing stories to share - A journey of a lifetime.

When carrying cash, try to travel only with recently issued currency in smaller denominations; wrinkled or torn bills are not accepted. Only exchange currency at authorized outlets such as currency exchanges, ATMs or hotels and save receipts as they may be required for exit.
