Trekking Details

Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trekking is situated in the eastern frontier Taplejung District of Nepal. This trek is known as mount Kanchenjunga 8586 m. height above sea level third highest mountain peak in the world. It is laid down between Nepal, Darjeeling & Sikkim India border. Tibetan call Kanchenjunga means ‘the five treasure houses of snow’, which gives you some idea of what to expect should you visit this area.

This Trek is attractive because it is less visited by tourists, the rhododendron forests are spectacular and the mountain scenery offers new vistas. A number of glaciers and server high trekking passes originated from Himalaya have no doubt added to the beauties of this region.

This is a Snow Leopard territory, but the reclusive predator shares the unbounded forests with the Himalayan Black Bear and the Assamese Macaque, among others. Cascading waterfalls, lush vegetation, and thousands of species of plants await those who take the long trail to Kanchenjunga Base Camp, the main route which has been described as ‘untracked’.
