Kanchenjunga Trek

Kanchenjungha 8586m – the third highest mountain in the world, known as the queen of the Great Himalayas stands on the Nepal – Sikkim border high above rhododendrons and large forests with rivers pouring from its sides. This region is to the west of Kathmandu and the nearest airport and roads are a long way from the mountain. On the trip you will be able to study the culture and lifestyle of Rai and Limbu communities.

For a trekking trip to the north base camp at Pangpema 5140m, we trek to Kanchenjunga North Base Camp and return to Taplejung by the same route, then flying back to Kathmandu from Taplejung takes minimum 23 Days. But the same trek can be done in 18 days if taking both way flight from/to Taplejung. To make a trekking trip to the south base camp at Oktang 4800 meter and Yalung glacier at same elevation, taking both way flight from Kathmandu to Taplejung takes minimum 16 days.

If you want to make the entire trek into the Kanchenjunga region including Milke Danda ridge (the trekking route above 4/5 days from Basantapur) with both North and south base camp, crossing five high passes in ‘Mirgin La route’ (Crossing max.4660 meter) or ‘Lapsang La route’ (Crossing max. 5110 meter) in between the short connection route of these two base camp takes minimum 26 to 30 days.We can also tailor a trek to your liking and develop an itinerary of your choice.
