Mountain Kanchenjunga is the third-highest peak in the world at an elevation of 8586m. Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is the most scenic journey in the eastern part of the Himalayas of Nepal.

The circuit trek around Kanchenjunga is getting popular now a day because it has basic rooms available at the teahouse from September to November and April to May. We see the panoramic view of Kanchenjunga, Makalu, and Everest, and also this trek offers high alpine vegetation and a variety of Rhododendrons, Fir, Pine, Home Lock, and Oak trees. This trek is also rich in wildlife such as the Snow Leopard, Clouded Leopard, Blue Sheep, Wild Goad, Marmot, and Weasel.

During the Kanchenjunga Trek, we visit Ghunsa – the Bhotia village and other several villages of Rai and Limbu which are the mainstays in the British Gorkha Regiments. We spend two nights in Ghunsa for safe acclimatization before we are pushing to Kanchenjunga North Base Camp – Pangpengma 5160m. There are spectacular views of Jannu Himal, Nepal Peak, Kanchenjunga I (8586m), and its glacier from the Jannu viewpoint at an elevation of 4400m. We back to Ghunsa village and go to the South Base Camp of Kanchenjunga by crossing Sininon (Selele) La at an elevation of 4646m. After Kanchenjunga South Base Camp, we go to Khebang with an up and downhill walk on a narrow trekking path which is more adventurous. From Khebang, we travel to Bhadrapur by jeep/bus and fly out to Kathmandu.
