“Chhatra I found right through out our communication (both in Australia and in Nepal) to be informative, respectful to my individual requests and very flexible to my changing needs and it appeared to me that Chhatra was available 24/7. What more can you ask for when traveling oversea Nothing that I can think of because Chhatra had already done the thinking for me.Thanks for a fantastically well organised trek Chhatra :)”

This trek was welly managed and organized which make the trek more flexible during trek with very helpful and experienced guide along the trek who helped me in every step of this trek , that's why i want to thank the local operator for organizing such a great trek here in Nepal. I had this great time and i strongly recommend this company for organizing any kind of trekking here in Nepal.”

Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek - Overview

If you are looking for a truly remote and adventurous trekking experience, then the Kanchenjunga trek is right trek for you! With its 8,586 m, Kanchenjunga is the world’s 3rd highest mountain, after K2 and Mount Everest. To the locals Kanchenjunga is not any mountain, but the abode of gods who bestow prosperity and goodwill.

Kanchenjunga is situated in far Eastern Nepal and lies within the 2,035 square kilometers Kanchenjunga Conservation Area. This part of Nepal has never been densely populated and neither has it ever received many trekking tourists. The area is therefore an absolute haven for many rare Himalayan species, including snow leopards, red pandas, and blue sheep. This trek delivers true pristine landscapes.

Via the 5,160 m Lapsang La pass the 4 week trek will take you through both the northern and southern base camp of Kanchenjunga. On the entire trail there will be stunning and remote mountain terrain because in addition to the Kanchenjunga peak, four subsidiary summits exceed 8000 m and more than some twenty peaks exceed 7,000 m.

Kanchenjunga Base Camp - Safety considerations

All trekking agencies available at Bookmundi.com take safety seriously and are assessed on their safety standards after every trek, via trekkers’ feedback. They will therefore go through safety procedures with you during your pre-trek meeting about the Kanchenjunga trek:

  • This is a high altitude trek and therefore careful acclimatisation is needed.
  • Most of the Kanchenjunga trekking is done in +4,000 m and without guest houses nearby. Please therefore be sure to bring enough warm clothes, especially during winter season (mid Nov - mid Feb). Your selected trekking agency will brief you in greater detail about this.
