Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trekking

An adventure amidst worlds' fifth highest peak Mt. Kanchenjunga, "the five jewels of the great snow range" straddles the Nepal and Sikkim borders.  This route is relatively frequented and thus the unspoiled villages and environment are yours to explore without the distractions of other trekkers.  This wonderful trip starts with a sweeping scenic flight, covering range of mountains from Langtang, Everest to Kanchenjunga to the south Gangetic plain in eastern Nepal with an overnight at Biratnagar, a short flight takes us to the foot hills of Mt. Kanchenjunga at Suketar, from here we hike through villages untouched by the modern world enclosed by pristine rhododendron, oak and pine forests. We will visit the South and the North Base Camp affording the best of views of the area. Challenged by the high pass crossings but each new step offers rewards of beauty and serenity. The return route is even more remote before joining the main trail and flying out of Taplejung.

On this journey, our route leads through South and the North of Kanchenjunga Base Camp giving you the best of both panoramas. The going can get quite strenuous sometimes 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's with awesome views of the towering peaks of the Kanchenjunga massif under a clear wide blue sky. As we camp at Pang-Pema our highest camp of the trek we will have time to explore around before heading back.The return journey is made by an alternative route till the trail joins at Suketar in Taplejung for the last camp of the trek.
