The Kanjiroba Himal lies in the Shey Phoksundo National Park, in West Nepal.
The mountain has a simple route up its wide south-west ridge with only minimal difficulties to cross several near-vertical icy stretches.
The approach to the mountain is about 12 days walking from Jumla. After a village called Hurikot, the trail heads north following the Jagdula Khola (river). The trail eventually breaks east to Dunai (in Dolpa) via the Kagmara La and the rest of the approach to the mountain is through unpopulated wilderness with only faint trails used by hunters and Yarchagumba harvesters.
During the rest of this approach needed five log bridges building, one across a gorge of 100m depth. Two 'Tyrolean traverses' were needed to pass loads.
Basecamp for the mountain is at 4200m, advanced basecamp ~5500m and camp I at ~6000m.
