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.
