This is also known as one of the wildernesses and less crowded areas treeing in Nepal. This less exposed area of Kanchenjungha region has now been a destination to enjoy the nature in its exotic and undisturbed form. Most strikingly, wonderful mountain peaks including as Mt Everest (8848m), Mt. Makalu (8,201m) and Mt. Lhotse (8,516m) etc. This trekking trail is situated in the north-eastern part of Nepal bordering to Sikkim.

We begin our Kanchenjungha trekking from Taplejing after we have flight from Kathmandu to suketar. The trail then ascends to Chauki via different beautiful traditional settlements in the region like Mitlung, Ghunsa, Khambachen and Lhonak to Pangpema (5140meters). Pangpema is known as the Base Camp of Mt. Kanchenjungha. Kanchenjungha Base Camp offers numerous opportunities for expeditions like attempting to scale the North Face of Kanchenjungha II and the ending of the first part of the trek. A various species of endangered species is native to this region. The snow leopard, red panda, musk deer, gray wolf, and the Himalayan black bear are the species of wildlife to be experienced in this region.

Kanchenjunga Trekking provides an excellent opportunity to experience exotic flora and fauna, unspoiled trails and landscapes, picturesque settlements, glaciers and cliffs and most striking, alluring giant mountain peaks dominating the skyline.
