Khang Karpo Expedition

Khang Karpo is one of the most beautiful 6646 meters mountains in Nepal. Located near Rolwaling valley on Ripimo Glacier, Khang Karpo stands on the border between China and Nepal. However, only a few climbers have summited this peak in two four-day expeditions. The summit of Khang Karpo offers a 360 panoramic view of all six peaks together, including Mt Langtang, Chukhung Ri (7877m), Mt Ama Dablam (6840m), Nuptse or Meili Xueshan (7861m), Lhotse (8516m), Mt Everest (8848m), and Makalu (8546m). This fact makes it popular among climbers who want to see all peaks together without crossing borders.
