Kanchenjunga Base Camp trek which pronouns as”Kang-chen-zod-nga”, meaning “Five Great Treasuries Of The Snow”, actually, has seven major summits. To the locals, Kanchenjunga (8585 m.), the third highest mountain in the world, is the abode of gods who bestow prosperity and benevolence on them and their lands. The avalanches that Kanchenjunga throws down are said to be the largest anywhere! The major ethnic group inhabiting the Kanchenjunga region are the Limbus who along with Rais have earned respect as fearless infantry men-the “Gurkhas”. The route starts by approaching the north side of Kanchenjunga where you see views of Tent peak, Nepal peak, Cross peak and then at Base Camp Kanchenjunga itself becomes visible

The Kanchenjunga Base Camp trek in Nepal’s far East is spectacular, challenging, and relatively untraveled destination. You will walk in through the culturally interesting mid-hills from Tumlingtar and Chainpur, then up the Tamur and Ghunsa River valleys to the north Base Camp at Pangpema. Then back south to Ghunsa and over either the Mirgin La or Lapsang La passes. Once over this pass we visit the yak pastures of Ramche and Oktang where there are impressive views of the south west face of Kanchenjunga. You’ll climb again, now on the south side of the massif, to the south Base Camp near Oktang. The Yalung glacier here is a bit tricky, so the south Base Camp has to be “conditions permitting”. Then south to Taplejung where the trek ends and you fly out.

Kanchenjunga Base Camp trek is for real adventure trekkers who prefer tented trek rather than tea house. Want to enjoy natural food rather than chocolate bars and want to enjoy pure water rather than cokes and other drink which are found in cities. Tented Trekking to both Base Camps. The trails are demanding, and you make high ascents to two base camps and cross a difficult pass between them. Even the maps of the area are inaccurate. The great variety of people and cultures, terrains, flora and fauna, plus the great mountains, make this an unbeatable program for the hardy and adventurous trekker
