The Climb To The Summit Of Mount Kangchenjunga
Pictures Of Kangchenjunga
The first ascent was May 25, 1955 by George Band and Joe Brown who stopped right below the summit. This is due to the fact that many people who live around the mountain believe it's sacred and that the summit should be left undisturbed by humans.
She reached the summit May 18, 1998 by its north face. She is the first and only woman to reach the top of Kangchenjunga.
