The Kanchenjunga mountain range in far Eastern Nepal is situated at the border with Sikkim (India). It is the third highest mountain in the world with peaks upto 8586m. The name “Kanchenjunga” means “5 peaks” in Tibetan language.
This trek, which is not very touristy but breathtaking, will introduce you to different landscapes, views and cultures, including Limbu and Tibetan culture.
There are lodges available along the trekking route, although they are very basic with minimum comfort and only for a limited amount of trekkers. Bigger groups have to bring their own tents.
Your adventure starts with the transportation from the capital to the trekking area. A combination of a domestic flight and long jeep drives brings you to this remote region. Make sure to count for some spare days after your trek! A cancelled domestic flight will result in extra days needed if you don’t want to miss your international flight.
This challenging trek is only suitable for people with a flexible attitude, sense of adventure and a good health and fitness.
