Introduction

 Nepal is home to arguably some of the most beautiful trekking destinations in the world. Right from the Mountain ranges to picturesque grasslands, pristine lakes, majestic slopes as well as gushing rivers, the region is a trekker’s delight and Kanchenjunga North Base Camp Trek is a combination of all. With elevations of about 5,200 above sea level, many people consider Kanchenjunga North Base Camp Trek as the most splendid of the Kanchenjunga Treks. The trek to Kanchenjunga is a long itinerary and offers one of the thrilling high altitude trekking trips, leading the most famous peaks of eastern Nepal as Kanchenjunga and mysterious Jannu via the spectacular Yalung Glacier. You'll also get to witness some of the spectacular mountain peaks including Everest (8848 meters), Kabru (7412 meters), Tharpu Chuli (Tent Peak) (5663 meters), Makalu (8481 meters), Jannu (7710 meters), and Kanchenjunga(8,586 meters) itself, third highest mountain in the world. If you're lucky enough, you'll get to encounter the impedance Red –Billed Blue Magpie, Musk Deer, Pheasant, Himalayan black bear, and even the Red Panda. Trekking to Kanchenjunga is possible throughout the year but March to May and September to December are the best months of the trek.

Kanchenjunga North Base Camp Trek begins with a scenic flight to Suketar, Taplejung, in the remote northeast part of Nepal. From Suketar, the trek continues through fascinating Rai and Limbu villages where you get to learn about their culture and history. As we head up through pristine forests to the awe-inspiring South Face Base Camp at Ramche we can enjoy the best of the off-the-beaten-path trek.  We cross Mirgin La Pass to the north side of Mount Kanchenjunga and the Pang Pama Base Camp. Stepping on the base camp of the world's third-highest mountain is a beautiful feeling. Pristine mountain rivers, Himalayas, nature, and culture make this trek an unforgettable experience.
