Mount Kusum Kanguru is a mountain with a difference. It is a complex mountain with triple summits, addressed as Three Snow-White Gods by the local population. Among these three, the northern face of the main summit is the most magnificent.The impressive rock and ice peak, which has al least five major ridges, acts as a border between the Dudhkosi in the south and Hinku Valley in the north. Described as extremely challenging on all possible routes by the trekkers, Mt. Kanguru Peak dominates the southern end of Charpati Himal. Dominating the southern end of Charpati Himal that separates the valley of the Dudh Koshi from the upper reaches of Hinku Drangka lies Kusum Kangru(6369m). This peak is a complex, triple summated mountain, having at least five major ridges and faces. The north face of the main summit is the most spectacular one. The name Kusum Kanguru comes from Tibetan meaning “Home of three gods” and it actually has three different summits. This peak is one of the most difficult trekking peaks to climb and was a first ascended in the autumn of 1979 by a Japanese team. Kusum Kanguru has the reputation for beings the most difficult without doubt increased by the level “ trekking peak” , with all that entails. It can in no way, even by its most moderate route, be compared with the more straight forward climbs on summit such as Island, Mera, or Pisang for instance. The climbing is technically difficult, needing a high degree of commitment and experience.
