Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek

KANCHENJUNGA BASE CAMP TREK

Kanchenjunga(8,586m) is the 3rd highest mountain in the world and located in the eastern part of Nepal on the border with Indian state of Sikkim. This is a really adventurous trek which takes trekkers to many of farms and rural villages still untouched by modern civilization, and into magnificent forests of rhododendron, oaks and pines and over scenic high passes that straddle the border with Sikkim.
Kanchenjunga region is also home of to an unusually large concentration of Nepal's birds and wildlife. The mountain is held sacred and early expeditions were not allowed to climb as far as the summit. As the trek is designed for camping arrangement, everything is handled by our team of porters, sherpas and cooks who carry the equipment, assemble and dissemble the camp and have hot meals waiting for you at every food break. An appropriate time to carry out the trek in an Extensive Kanchenjunga is spring and autumn.
