  • Chortens temples and prayer walls - Traditional Sherpa Village
  • Unique Himalayan Culture - flowering glory of Rhododendrons.
Many people have described the Kanchenjunga trek as the finest trekking route in Nepal. It is a long trek going deep into the remote mountain ranges on Nepal’s border with Sikkim and Tibet. The trail explores the areas around Kanchenjunga the second highest mountain in Nepal and the third highest mountain in the world (once thought to be the highest among the world’s giants).

The mountain is part of the Great Himalaya Range. The Kanchenjunga massif is in the form of a gigantic cross, the arms of which extend north, south, east, and west. This recently opened Kanchenjunga region routes offer the chance to discover absolutely unspoiled highlands wilderness. In Tibetan, ‘Kanchenjunga’ means ‘the five treasure houses of snow’, which gives you some idea of what to expect when visiting the area. The Kanchenjunga conservation area (20,35Sq km) extends into protected areas in Sikkim and Tibet, and comprises beautiful and unspoiled wilderness. The area is snow leopard territory, but the reclusive predator shares the unbounded forests with the Himalayan black bear and the Assamese macaque, musk deer and red panda among others. Cascading waterfalls, lush vegetation and thousands of species of plants await the trekker. More than 2,000 different flowering plants have been recorded in the Kanchenjunga area and in the springtime some of the richest rhododendron forests in Nepal can be seen.
