Kanchenjunga Trek - 29 days

Kanchenjunga Trek is the trek to the Base Camp of the world's third highest peak Kanchenjunga. Kanchenjunga trek is great himalayan attraction and trekking.

Soak up spectacular views of the Jannu Himalayas from the Mirgin La. Visit serene villages on the boarders of Sikkim and Tibet.

Kanchenjunga, "Treasures of Snow" (28,198ft) is the third highest mountain in the world and was first climbed by a British team in 1956 AD. Here you can endure a tough challenge, and reap the rewards!

We promise this high altitude Himalayan trek will leave an impact on you forever. Kanchenjunga, although a restricted area, perhaps one of the most remote trekking regions, is situated in Eastern Nepal bordering the Indian state of Sikkim. This area houses Musk Deer, Blue Sheep and the maybe even the legendary Yeti. Few westerners have traveled to this remote area.

This high endurance trek starts with a pleasant drive to Basantpur after which an easy walk for three days through Sherpa and Chhetri villages will reach you to a place called Suketar.

From here on you will feel isolated and far away from civilization, walking on a route along a ridge towards the Tamur River, enjoying panoramic views of Makalu (27,825ft) and Chamlang (24,000ft) peaks. After covering the forests and rhododendron thickets the Kanchenjunga range dramatically reveals itself. The route continues up the Tamur River through Limbu Villages (where a pot of Tongba can be had) to the terraced mountainside village of Amjilassa and the legendary Sherpa village of Ghunsa (11,400ft). The lovely monastery in Ghunsa makes for an interesting visit before the first glimpse of a sea of unclimbed peaks including Jannu (25,289ft), know as "Mystery Peak" or "Terror Peak" is visible. The trail goes on to reach the edge of the Kanchenjunga Glacier and, after crossing the lateral moraine you will come to the junction of Lhonak Glacier (15,680ft) and the valley beyond it. The campsite at Lhonak can be reached by crossing this junction, an undisturbed landscape of unspeakable beauty.

After a couple of days of rest and exploration at Lhonak, including a day trip to Pangpema (16,900ft) to admire the north face of Kangchenjunga, you will continue back the same way home. There is an option however, if the team is interested, to cross two passes, the Lapsang La (16,760ft) and Sinion/Mirgin La (15,300ft) depending on the conditions. On the last day of your trek you will walk back to Suketar to catch a flight to Biratnagar and a connecting flight from there to Kathmandu.
