kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek


“Kanchenjunga” a name that originates from Tibetan language, means the “five treasures of snow” and corresponds to the massif’s five distinct peaks. Like many other mountains in Nepal, Kanchenjunga offers world-class trekking. But unlike some of the country’s more popular routes, which can become overrun in the prime autumn and spring hiking seasons, the trails to and around Kanchenjunga remain delightfully free of foreign visitors due to the difficulty and expense of reaching the area.

During the trek, one can enjoy the spectacular view of the Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), the third highest peak in the world. Along with Mt. Kanchenjunga, high mountain peaks that exceed (8000 m) can be seen, Mt. Everest, Mt. Makalu and Kanchenjunga West, also known as Yalung Kang (8,505m). And also the other peaks exceeding 7,000 meters , Kambachen (7,903 m) being the highest among them. Jannu (7,710 m), Jongsong (7,483 m), Kabru (7,353 m), Tent Peak (7,365 m) and the Twins (7,350 m) are some other peaks above 7000 meters that can be seen during the trek.

Rai and Limbu are the dominant ethnic groups on this region.
