Kusum Kangaru Peak Climbing (6367m)
Kusum Kanguru (6,369 m.) overlooking the southern final point of Charpati Himal split the valley of the Dudh Koshi from the higher reaches of Hinku Drangka to the west and also to the east, the Hinku Valley. The mountain is the core source of the Kusum River or Thado Koshi River which pours westward to combine into the Dudh Kosi River at the village of Thado Koshi. Kusum kangru peak is actually situated at the range of Mahalangur Himalayan in Everest region at Solukhumbu District in Nepal.
Kusum Kangaru in Tibetan language means "Three snow mountains". This is one of the most demanding peaks climbing which is triple-summated and have at least five chief edges and faces. Optionally, this peak can be climbed from south-east Ridge way or north route. It was first ascended by a Japanese group in 1979. Walking all the way through Sherpa community, visiting Namche Bazaar; exploring Khumjung village and witnessing the mind-sweeping views of Mt. Everest, Amadabla, Lhotse, Khangtega, Thamserku and several more are the most fascinating part of this trek. And the best seasons to go for this trek are autumn and spring.
