Kanchenjunga Jaljale Trek

Trip Code: KJT

27 Days

Gufa Pokhari, Sankhaswaba

Kanchenjunga Jaljale Trek is one of the most pristine wildernesses to be found in the Himalayas. The name of this trek has been named after the lowest Himal of the Kanchanjunga The trekking route to Jaljale was opened in the spring of 1988. Even today we rarely see any other trekkers along this route. However, it remains the most pristine wilderness areas in the Himalaya.

We begin our trip with a flight to Tumlingtar and then trek to Kharang Bazaar, where we can visit a weekly market held every Friday. Next day morning we gently ascend Milke Danda that lies across JaIjale Himal. With its highest point just over 15,000ft Jaljale is the lowest Himal in the range. It is a long, spiny mountain, stretching north-south for over 25 miles, with rugged rock formations rising above clear alpine lakes. While the net elevation change each day is minimal, the terrain, elevation, and remoteness are challenging. We next travel to the rarely visited town of Topke Gola 13,000ft, on the banks of the upper Mewa (Papaya) River. It is inhabited by Tibetan traders and yak herders. As we descend the river, we experience greener, warmer and gentler terrain. Shops selling local green tea and Tongba (fermented millet alcoholic drink) offer additional opportunities to interact with the local people. We end our trek at Basantapur and drive back to Biratnagar and catch the flight to Kathmandu.

The Jaljale Himal trek can be undertaken by any trekkers but requires trekking experience, as some parts of the trail need to be ascended across the ridge and seems to be quite difficult. With the help of our experienced guides and Sherpas, trekkers with limited experience we can organize this trek safely and comfortably.
