Five Treasure of Kanchenjunga Reviewed Tour: Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek
Lilly Alli From Norway
5 - Excellent
“This May me and my family were joined in this Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek of 21 days which was very much great and wonderful with all views of Himalayas, Mountains, flora and fauna,Wildlife and local people culture and traditions.We had the flight from Kathmandu to Bhadhrapur where we saw the beautiful scenery of Far Eastern Part of Nepal including the best views of Himalayas and landscape along our flight to Bhadrapur for our great trek ahead.This trek was very much relaxing and enjoyable with all the great hospitality and welcoming around this regions from the Local people who were very much friendly. During this trek we encountered the best business and occupation of this region with main income source were Cardamon, Animal Husbandry,Agriculture, Natural Medicine and Herbs and Tourism which makes this Place a really unique in Culture and Tradition of ages. So this trek is very much great destination for those tourists who want to spend their time with nature with less crowded areas as we encountered a lot of people last year in Everest region trek but this region was very much different where you will have your own time around the natural landscapes with less crowded people and visitors, regardless there were basic lodges and tea houses that's why camping is the best for this trekking area but we can find the great facilities in the Ghunsa village with facility of showers, bathroom,electricity in the loges and tea houses .Our team group was very much greatly organized with their designated job for this trek, which help us to be more comfortable and relaxing during the trek.This trek taught us to be more thankful towards the nature and it's resources which helps us in our daily life and makes our life better and happy.”

We want to thank all the team members, especially our guide Pasang for taking care of us on every trail and way as we had both tea house and camping trek which is difficult to manage but also this Mount Adventure Holiday's Company organized this trek for us with great precision and care with all the fooding and Lodging even though this region had only basic tea house lodges.”

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.
