Introduction

Perched at an elevation of 4,610m, Kanchenjunga South Base Camp trek is one of the world's most challenging trek, geographically lies on the Nepal-Sikkim (India) border. The trail to Kanchenjunga Base Camp climbs through lush pristine forests, crop fields, and tranquil villages. The trek demands a good level of fitness and previous trekking experience to ensure the perfect enjoying of this challenging, yet beautiful trek in this remote eastern part of Nepal. The trek passes through the Kanchenjunga Conservation area that gives us an opportunity to encounter some of the endangered species of wild animals and birds including Snow cock, blood pheasant, Himalayan black bear, clouded leopard, and Assamese macaque, etc. You'll also get to witness the awe-aspiring views of mountains such as Kangbachen (7903m), Mt. Everest, Yalung Kang (8505m) and Mt. Kanchenjunga itself.

Kanchenjunga South Base Camp Trek starts from Suketar after a scenic flight from Kathmandu then goes through typical Nepali villages and refreshing points such as Tembewa, Khesewa, Mamanke, Yamphudin, Tortang, Cheram, Ramche (4580m) and finally reach Kanchanjangha South Base Camp (4,610m).  Passing through such a village allows you to know about a different ethnic group like Sherpa, Limbu, Bhraman, Chetri, Magar, and Rai, etc. and their culture, lifestyle, and history. So get ready to enjoy icy routes, bone-chilling winds, spectacular mountains, Nepali culture pristine nature, and the experience of a lifetime.

Accommodation

During ABC Short Trek,  we assure you to make you feel homely with the warm hospitality and close interaction to local mountain people. The higher elevation you get, the lodging facility declines a bit as in mountain regions it's difficult to provide all facilities like in Kathmandu city. In most of the teahouses, you'll have a squat toilet system and a twin-sharing room with mattresses, blanket and pillows will be available. We can also manage single rooms on request, but it will cost some extra charges. We'll stay in a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu.

Food

The trek will take you to the high elevations so your body needs enough carbohydrate, protein, nutrition for the body to hike on such high Himalayan trails like Kanchenjunga South Base Camp Trek. You'll find a very convenient meal in teahouses during this trek, not like that in cities, but we make sure you get the best supplements through your complete trek. The food includes varieties of dishes like typical Nepali dishes (Dal, Bhat & Tarkari), Tibetan Bread, Sandwiches, Momos (dumplings), Macaroni, Various Soups items, Sherpa Stew, Steaks, Tenduk, Spaghetti Noodles, and other dishes from the menu.
