Kanchenjunga Trek - 33 Days

Kanchenjunga Trek

Kanchenjunga 8586 meter – the third highest mountain in the world, as the queen of the Great Himalayas stands on the Nepal- Sikkim border high above rhododendrons and large forests with rivers pouring from its sides. Nepal opened the Kanchenjunga Trek in Kanchenjungha region to trekkers in 1988, though people have trekked in the area in connection with mountaineering expeditions since the turn of the century.

Comparatively the region is a long way from Kathmandu and the nearest airport and roads are a long way from the mountain. As per the rule of Nepal Government there should be at least two trekkers in a group to trek at a time. On the trip you will be able to study the culture and lifestyle of Rai and Limbu communities.

For a trekking trip to the north base camp at Pangpema 5140 meter, taking flight from Kathmandu to Biratnagar then drive Biratnagar to Basantapur and trek to Kanchenjungha North Base Camp and return to Taplejung by the same route, then flying back to Kathmandu from Taplejung takes minimum 23 Days. But the same trek can be done in 18 days if taking both way flight from/to Taplejung. To make trekking trip to the south base camp at Oktang 4800 meter and Yalung glacier at same elevation, taking both way flight from Kathmandu to Taplejung takes minimum 16 days.

One who wants to make entire trek in Kanchenjungha region including Milke Danda ridge (the trekking route above 4/5 days from Basantapur) with both North and south base camp, crossing five high passes in ‘Mirgin La route’ (Crossing max.4660 meter) or ‘Lapsang La route’ (Crossing max. 5110 meter) in between the short connection route of these two base camp takes minimum 26 to 30 days.
