Greetings from Nepal!
This spring Explore Himalaya arranged the logistics for three major expedition groups: CAVAPLAND Kanchenjunga Expedition, Lhakpa Ri Expedition and Altitude Junkies Everest Expedition. This month’s highlights include interviews with members of CAVAPLAND Kanchenjunga Expedition 2009 and Lhakpa Ri Expedition.
Mt. Tukuche is a spectacular peak situated in front of Dhaulagiri 1 and the Annapurna range. Tukuche was first climbed by a Swiss team in 1969. Due to its remote location, the area is seldom visited by commercial trekking groups. As far as risk factor is concerned, the expedition to Tukuche Peak is regarded as ‘low risk’.
