Kanchajunga Trek

Kanchanjunga trekking takes you to the base camp of world’s third highest peak, Kanchanjunga, (8,586m.) and offers infinite variety of landscapes, cultures and panoramic views of Himalayas. The Kanchenjunga region is very rich from the point of view of its natural beauty and offers the great diversity of culture and tradition. Trekking in Kanchanjunga is strenuous as it is regarded as one of the most remote places of Nepal. Walking on the low lands of Nepal passing terraced fields, colourful villages of Rai, Limbu, Magar, Tamang, Brahmin & Chhetris, green forests, kanchanjunga trekking enters into country's most pristine oak and rhododendron forests. As the trail gains altitude, gorgeous views of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, & Kanchanjunga, four of the worlds five highest mountains make kanchanjunga trekking rewarding. Approaching Yalung glacier & crossing a series of passes, the views become more magnificent. The trail reaches Pangpema (4800m.) which is the base camp for Kanchunjunga expedition.
