HIGHLIGHTS
  • Great views of Kanchenjunga, the 3rd highest mountain in the world
  • Challenge yourself on this long, onceinalifetime trek
Kanchenjunga south base camp trekking is one of the popular destinations in Kanchenjunga region. Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586 m), the third highest mountain in the world is one the unspoiled trekking trails in eastern part of Nepal in the border of Nepal and Sikkim (India). The trekking to the south base camp offers varieties of landscapes, cultures and panoramic views of four highest mountains including Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Kanchenjunga .

Kanchenjunga South Base Camp With regards to the mountains themselves, in addition to the main peak of Kanchenjunga, there are four subsidiary summits exceeding 8,000m, the most important being Kanchenjunga West, also known as Yalung Kang (8,505m). Also found in this area are approximately twenty peaks exceeding 7,000m, the highest being Kambachen (7,903m), Janu (7,710m), Jongsong (7,483m), Kabru (7,353m), Tent Peak (7,365m) and the Twins (7,350m). In addition there are numerous peaks over 6,000m. Amongst this impressive cluster of peaks are five major glacial systems. Of these, Zumu, Talung and Rathong flow into Sikkim while to the west, the Kanchenjunga and Yalung glaciers flow into the mighty Tamor River of Nepal.
This just adds to the fact trekking in Kanchenjunga is an unforgettable experience where trekkers get right into the heart of the remote, less trekked, Himalaya mountains and valleys. With the recent addition to the trekking map, as well as other, remote areas so there is the opening up of more tea houses on the route. While this is a positive for the local communities, now would be a good time to go to Kanchenjunga before more trekkers ‘discover’ the area

“Going valley in the morning over 4000m was severe coldness in winter because no sunshine due to surrounding mountains and wind. (Dingboche to Lobche)
It might be better to add 1 more layer, considering the weather.
Since a bit earlier than year end holiday, I could spend more quiet time.
On the way to back, I met more people who were going up.
Mr Bibek, the guide was knowledgeable and explained the mountains.
He was good advisor also for health conditions but you should know yourself first.”

“Great experience for people with lack of time for decent trek. It contains various aspects of nice trek: countryside, hills, forest trek, rocks & waterfalls and (of course) sunrise experience with the great view of both Annapurna and Dhaulagiri.
Recommended as first experience with Himalayas - not demanding, time consuming but totally rewarding.”

“This trek was very nice and my guide Om was very friendly and patient. The steps in lodges were perfect. And I was lucky because the view from Nagarkot on the mountains was under the sun: beautiful! I recommend this agency for its seriousness!”
