In this trek Pasang sherpa, our guide was very much talented and friendly with the experience of guiding and mountaineering, in this trek we visited both North and South Base Camp of Kanchenjunga which was pretty much breath taking view from both base camp of Kanchenjunga.And we hope to revisit Nepal for more Treks in near future with Mount Adventure Holidays and team.”

“I have done the Kanchenjunga trek with Pemba as my guild staying in tea houses. Pemba introduced me to the local people and customs and he also introduced me to Tomba a local beer . there was no 5 star accommodation and no 5 star dining in the tea houses. if you want to meet the local people and see some beautiful county Pemba is the guy he will make it a very memorial trip. loved it.
one day I will be back to walk with Pemba .
I tried to upload some photos but my old laptop would not let me.”

“I trekked the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area with Mount Adventure Holidays in Nov/Dec 2017.The fact that Kanchenjunga is an incredibly remote and isolated area, we spent 3 amazing weeks in some of the most unspoilt land imaginable. This was all due to the incredible organisation and local knowledge of both the Thamel based office staff at Mount Adventure Holidays and their highly qualified and experienced guides (Pasang, Lkapa and Pemba). A big thank you must also go out to all of the incredible guys that worked as our porters carrying our gear, setting up campsites, cooking food, entertaining us with their fun loving sense of humour, and showing us more care and compassion beyond what you would normally expect. I would recommend Mount Adventure Holidays to all and any of my friends, family and anyone else considering travelling 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.

Amazing evening view of Mount Kanchenjunga

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.
