Kanchenjunga Trekking is considered one of the most rewarding and classical adventure trekking trails in Nepal. Mt. Kaanchenjungha, standing at a height of 8586m, is popular as the third-highest peak in the world. Trekking to the Kanchenjunga region is trekking to a virgin and unexplored remote area of Nepal. This is also known as one of the wildernesses and less crowded areas treeing in Nepal. This less exposed area of the Kanchenjungha region has now been a destination to enjoy nature in its exotic and undisturbed form. Most strikingly, wonderful mountain peaks include Mt Everest (8848m), Mt. Makalu (8,201m) Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), etc. This trekking trail is situated in the north-eastern part of Nepal bordering Sikkim.

We begin our Kanchenjungha trekking from Taplejing after we have a 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 (5140 meters). 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. Various species of endangered species are native to this region. The snow leopard, red panda, musk deer, gray wolf, and 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. The relatively, less uncovered area among the trekking trails in Nepal, Kanchenjunga region trekking is getting popular among adventure trekking enthusiasts.

We, Team Himalaya have been successfully operating various trekking trips to the Kanchenjunga region of Nepal since its establishment. We offer an equipped team to ensure your safety and luxury during the trip. We are flexible to offer any trip to the trekkers.

Kanchenjunga Trekking is considered one of the most rewarding and classical adventure trekking trails in Nepal. Mt. Kaanchenjungha, standing at a height of 8586m, is popular as the third-highest peak in the world. Trekking to the Kanchenjunga region is trekking to a virgin and unexplored remote area of Nepal. This is also known as one of the wildernesses and less crowded areas treeing in Nepal. This less exposed area of the Kanchenjungha region has now been a destination to enjoy nature in its exotic and undisturbed form. Most strikingly, wonderful mountain peaks include Mt Everest (8848m), Mt. Makalu (8,201m) Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), etc. This trekking trail is situated in the north-eastern part of Nepal bordering Sikkim.

We begin our Kanchenjungha trekking from Taplejing after we have a 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 (5140 meters). 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. Various species of endangered species are native to this region. The snow leopard, red panda, musk deer, gray wolf, and 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. The relatively, less uncovered area among the trekking trails in Nepal, Kanchenjunga region trekking is getting popular among adventure trekking enthusiasts.

We, Team Himalaya have been successfully operating various trekking trips to the Kanchenjunga region of Nepal since its establishment. We offer an equipped team to ensure your safety and luxury during the trip. We are flexible to offer any trip to the trekkers.
