Kanchanjangha Trek

Trip Description

 Kanchenjunga is the world's 3rd highest mountain with the height of 8,586m,is located in the far north eastern corner of Nepal bordering Sikkim, it is considered as one of the most beautiful mountain massifs in the world.

Kanchenjunga circuit trekking is getting popular these days among nature enthusiasts as it is a long adventure to the most remote and beautiful area of Himalayas in Nepal’s eastern regions. The name Kanchenjunga means five treasures of the great snow which is in reference to the five summits that make up Kanchenjunga. Since, this trekking is less crowded you will be rewarded with a unique insight into Nepali rural lifestyle and its rich culture. You will also experience every climate Nepal has to offer from steamy jungles to jumbled glaciers. Kanchenjunga Circuit Trekking offers it all.

This trek is opened for trekkers on 1988, even today the area is very less travelled. The remoteness of area and lack of proper accommodation means we have to go for a fully supported camping trek - staying in tented camps.

The indigenous groups of Rai and Limbu who belong to the Kiranti group are local inhabitants of the region. This trip also offers excellent opportunity to witness one of the many colorful festivals and traditions enjoyed by these communities. On this trek, we will be visiting both sides of the Kanchenjunga Base Camp.
