kanchenjunga trek

Kanchenjunga is the third highest of the world’s peaks and one of the most remote trekking areas in the Nepal Himalaya. This route takes you from the south-eastern corner of Nepal at altitude of just 70m to the base camp of this, one of the greatest mountain masses in the world. It is one of Nepal’s least trekked areas and certainly one of its most beautiful., from Kathmandu you fly to Taplejung via Biratnagar and commence trekking up Tamur valley along one of the oldest trade routes in the Himalaya. Walking through lush rhododendron forests you climb on into high alpine terrain beyond the village of Gunsa. A camp established high above this village that provides astounding views of Kanchenjunga’s South face. Returning to Gunsa you then cross the Lapsung La pass and trek on the Yalung Glacier and Kanchenjunga Base Camp. This really is still exploratory trekking and you must be prepared to take the trail as it comes. But to look up at Kanchenjuga towering south face is easily reward enough for your efforts. Retracing your route to Taplejung you return to Kathmandu, having becomes one of few who have experienced this remarkable and little known region of Nepal.
