This 25-day Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is not just a walk, but a journey of a lifetime. You will be setting foot on the base camp of the third highest mountain in the world.

This trek is a well-trailed route despite being a journey into the wilderness. The region is easily accessible. Kanchenjunga, which means Treasures of Snow, stands 28,198ft tall. This is a remote trek through Eastern Nepal, as the trail passes restricted areas and takes the periphery of border to the Indian state of Sikkim.

After a flight to Biratnagar and a four hour drive to Basantpur, the trek starts. The trail climbs through the settlements of the yak herders, Sherpa and Chhetri villages with a backdrop of the Kanchenjunga massif. Crossing the ridge towards the Tamur River, panoramic views of Makalu and Chamlang appear. The trail crosses the Mewa Khola at Dobhan and follows the Tamur Koshi. Dense rhododendron, pine and oak forests pass along the way.

At Ghusna, a Sherpa village, prayer flags and gompas can be seen in plenty. Jannu and other unclimbed peaks can be seen from a monastery nearby. The trail passes through the edge of Kanchenjunga Glacier. After crossing the junction of Lhonak Glacier and the valley, we come to an extraordinarily beautiful clearing with magnificent landscape of unspeakable beauty where we set camps for the day. Lhonaks exploration continues for some days which includes going to Pangpema to view Kanchenjungas north face. Then slowly descending through Tortong, Yamphudim, Khebang, Phakholing, and Tharpu, we reach Bhadrapur from where we take a flight back to Kathmandu.
