Kanchanjuhgha Trek ( 12 days )

Kanchanjuhgha Trek

Trip Overview

Kanchenjunga “the mountain of jewels”, the third tallest peak (8586m) in the world and possibly one of the least unexplored remote region of eastern Nepal and certainly one of its most beautiful. Breathtaking views of the vast Himalayan range from the majority of the routes trails. Walking in pleasant villages, through rhododendron forest in the lower valley then in the high regions, glorious mountains views of Everest, Makalu and the Kanchanjunga massif will make the trip memorable and abundant wildlife such as musk deer, blue sheep and yak grazing in the high altitude always astonish us. Nepal opened the Kanchenjunga area to trekkers in 1988, though people have trekked in the area in connection with mountaineering expeditions since the turn of the century. Kanchenjunga is a long way from Kathmandu, and the nearest roads and airports are a long way from the mountain. You can trek either to the north or south Kanchenjunga base camp, but it takes luck, determination and a lot of time to visit both sides of the peak. The northern side is particularly remote; it takes almost two weeks of walking to get to the base camp at Pang Pema. Kanchenjunga is on the border of Nepal and the Indian state of Sikkim, so a circuit of the mountain is politically impossible. The next best alternative is to visit both the north and south sides of the mountain from the Nepal side. The Kanchenjunga region remains technically restricted, but you can trek here if you get a trekking permit form. There are a few tea houses in the lowlands, but in the high country we must have food and a tent. A 20 to 25 day trek takes you to the snowline through high pastures and into the romance of the mountain jewels. Much more than a trek, it is a journey of discovery.

Detail : It's a long but fine trek from Hille or Tumlingtar along Arun river to the Makalu Base Camp in eastern Nepal. On this trek you will go through Arun Valley which is famous for its unique flora and fauna not only for Nepal but also for the world. this place still needs your exploration to come out with true delight and entertainment provided by birds and wildlife.
