Kanchenjunga trek is an adventurous journey in the world's third highest mountain range. Situated in the north eastern part of Nepal, bordering India with Sikkim, this is a remote area, abundant in wildlife. Habitation consists of only a few scattered villages. There are musk deer, blue sheep and for the believer, the Yeti. Magnificent views of Everest, Makalu, and Mt Kanchenjunga abound. The trek follows the quiet trails through beautiful forest on these remote landscapes; and this trip certainly makes it worth the visit to the local communities of Sherpa, Limbu and Rai tribes.
Mt. Kanchenjunga is known as "the five jewels of the great snow range". This route is relatively un-trekked and thus unspoiled villages and environment are yours to explore without the distractions of other trekkers.
This wonderful adventure begins with a scenic sweeping flight, covering range of mountains from Langtang, Everest, and Kanchenjunga to the south Gangetic plain in the Eastern Nepal. You will then overnight at Biratnagar, an industrial town close to Indian border. The next day morning a short flight towards the foot hills of Mt. Kanchenjunga at Sukhetar. And this is where our trek begins, through villages untouched by the modern civilization and enclosed in pristine rhododendron, oak and pine forests. An opportunity to visit the both Base Camps, i.e. the South and the North Base Camp, affords the best of views of the area.
This trek can be quite strenuous at times while crossing the passes, but for every hard effort, you will be rewarded with brilliant scenery. As we head higher towards the windswept rugged terrain, we will be enchanted with awesome views of the towering peaks of the Kanchenjunga under a clear, wide blue sky.
Our highest camp will be at Pang-Pema with enough time to explore around before heading back. The return journey is made by an alternative route till the trail joins at Sukhetar in Taplejung for the last camp of the trek.
