Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek

Trip Code: KBC

21 Days

Mount Kanchenjunga Range

Kanchanjunga Base Camp trek is off the beaten trail which takes you to the base camp of the world’s 3rd highest peak - Kanchenjunga to the north-east part of Nepal. The entire trekking area is renowned for having the most pristine wilderness found on the planet.  The biodiversity of the Kanchenjunga region is equally impressive as it showcases a number of natural & cultural significant landmarks, including indigenous villages, centuries-old monasteries, and more than 2,500 species of flora & several endangered wildlife species.

We start our trekking journey with a domestic flight from Kathmandu to Biratnagar and then drive up to Suketar. From Suketar we walk through great rhododendron forests & lovely villages of Chirwa, Sakathum, Amjilassa, Kyapra, Gunsa, Khambachen until we reach Kanchenjunga Base Camp at the elevation of 5220m.  On the way, we cross over high passes & glaciers where we enjoy overwhelming views of the Himalayan giants that rise all around. After Ghunsa it takes another four days before reaching the north side base camp of Pang Pema (5100m) with fantastic views of Makalu, Chamlang, Everest, Jannu and the Kanchanjunga massif in the background. The views are stunning both from the Base Camp as well as during entire trekking. A special trekking permit is required to do the trek in Kanchenjunga region. The latitudinal variation and contrast between jungles and glaciers with some of the world’s highest peaks makes. Ethnic cultures are well preserved. Hinduism is the main religion of the local inhabitants of the region.
