Kanchenjunga - "Is the third highest mountain in the world"

Kanchenjunga Trekking

The Kanchenjunga Trek follows an incredible trekking route around Mt. Kanchenjunga, the third highest peak in the world (8586 m), and visits both the north and south base camps of this mountain. Kanchenjunga is located in the northeast part of Nepal and borders both Tibet and India. This lengthy trek travels deep into the remote mountain ranges surrounding Mt. Kanchenjunga, and passes through a variety of landscapes from fantastic lush, tropical forests with rhododendrons, orchids, pines, oaks and chestnuts, meadows with grazing yaks, to high alpine environments.The Kanchenjunga Trek has gained popularity in recent years amongthose interested in the natural resources and beauty of Nepal.

Kanchenjunga is also called Five Treasures of Snow after the five high peaks that make up the mountain. Fewer people go on this trek compared to many of the more popular treks in Nepal, and intrepid travellers are rewarded with an exclusive insight into Nepalese culture and lifestyle. The route itself starts on the north side of Kanchenjunga where the magnificent views of Nepal Peak, Cross Peak, Tent Peak and Kanchenjunga Base Camp soon become visible. Viewpointsare also located near the climbing base camps on the south and north sides of this massive mountain. Another attraction of this trek is the Nepalese culture. The trek returns from Pangpema to Ghunsa and then crosses the Mirgin La pass over the Kanchenjunga from the south side. Once over this pass we visit the elegant yak pastures of Ramche and Oktang where there are exciting views of the southwest face of Kanchenjunga. The climate varies on this trek from hot sweltering forests to cold icy glaciers.
