Introduction

The Kanchenjunga Circuit trek gives each adventure seeker an option to discover the unique landscape and visits both the north and south base camps of Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world at 8,586m.  It is a long trek itinerary passing deep into the remote mountain region on Nepal’s border near Sikkim and Tibet. Trek to base camp offers scenery from the lush, green forest through to rhododendron, oak forests and then goes at higher altitudes into the alpine zone. While passing through typical Nepali villages, you'll witness warm hospitality from Nepali people with Nepalese culture and life-style from Rai and Limbus to Tibetan Buddhist villages. This is mostly a remote area and high-altitude trek, So a good level of physical fitness and some previous trekking experience is required. We go through Kanchenjunga Conservation Area, so a special permit is required to enter where you can also enjoy varieties of flora and fauna in pristine conditions. The main highlights of this trek are majestic views of high mountain peaks including Kanchenjunga, Yalung Kang (8,505m), Kambachen (7,903m), Everest(8,848m), Janu (7,710m), Jongsong (7,483m), Kabru (7,353m), Tent Peak (7,365m), etc. Months of Apr-May and Oct-Nov are the best for this trek.

Trek to Kanchenjunga Region is a unique experience where trekkers get right into the heart of the remote, and unspoiled part of eastern Nepal. Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek starts with a scenic flight to Suketar. We pass through several Tamang and Limbu villages and stopping points such as Chirwa, Sakathum, Gyapla, Ghunsa, Lhonak, Pangpema North Base Camp, Sele La pass camp, Mirgin-La Pass, Sinelapache-La Pass, Cheram, etc. A walkthrough Kanchenjunga Conservation Area lets us experience wildlife diversities and endangered species such as Impedance Pheasant, Shy Dragon,  Red-Billed Blue Magpie, Amphibian and Mammals including Snow-leopard, Red Panda, Himalayan Black Bear, Musk Deer, etc. If you are looking forward to making memories in high mountains and pristine environment, this trek is just what you are looking for.
