Trip Introduction;
Kang Guru Expedition, a fascinating mountain which lies in the Western part of Nepal. It is located between the massifs of Annapurna and Manaslu. Mt Kang Guru Expedition has recently been allowed for mountain climbers. Considered as one of the difficult and challenging trekking peak, the ridges of Mt Kang Guru are steep and very sharp. The first ascend of Mt. Kang Guru Expedition was made by Japanese Expedition Team. Apart from the adventure trip to Kang Guru Expedition, we will also have an opportunity to explore the less beaten and remote region of Nepal. We will trek though numerous cultural and traditional villages, and along the world’s deepest gorge – Kali Gandaki Valley. Previous climbing experience, good physical condition and high degree of commitment is  very crucial for the successful expedition of Mt. Kang Guru.

Kang Guru Expedition with Nepal Guide Treks begins at Kathmandu. After spending a full day sightseeing and making preparations for the expedition, we will drive from Kathmandu passing through Beshisahar to reach Chamje – the starting point of the trek. From Chamje, we will start our trek by crossing a suspension bridge and then climbing towards the village of Tal – official entry to Manang District. Following the trail at the west bank of the river we head towards Dharapani. With good views of the Annapurnas and sections of Lamjung Himal, we will climb through dense pine and fir forest, rejoining the road for a long and easy descent to Koto. After registering at Koto village we will make a gradual downhill descent for the crossing of suspension bridge and then follow the trail at the true left bank of Naar-Phu Khola gorge.

From this point, the trail becomes steeper and we can hear the loud roars of rivers as the rapids crashes with huge stones and deposits of the landslides. We will continue on an easy trek along the forest section before climbing to the stone huts of Singenge. From there our trail heads towards Mount Kang Guru Base Camp. After arriving at the base camp, our Sherpa crew will quickly set up the camp and make necessary checks on climbing gears and our health conditions. With the guidance and instructions of our experienced climbing expert we head towards the summit of Mt. Kang Guru. After the thrilling and challenging climb of the Kang Guru mount summit, we retrace our steps back to base camp. Having achieved our target summit, we follow the trail that passes through Koto and back to Syange. Our memorable and adventurous Kang Guru Expedition with Nepal Guide Treks ends with a drive from Syange back to Kathmandu.
