Join us on 24-day trek that takes on a journey to the foothills of one of the tallest mountains on earth. Geographically located on the eastern border of Nepal, Kangchenjunga stands at the height of 8,585 meters above sea level and is renowned as the third highest mountain in the world. Spiritually, it is believed to be the abode of the gods who bestow prosperity upon mankind.

Starting with a pickup on arrival in Kathmandu, you will travel by air and land to Mithung, the starting point of the trek. From there you will trek through terraced fields, forests and steep hills to reach Khambachen (4099 m), where you will spend a day acclimatizing.

Your journey from Khambachen takes you past the moraines of the Kanchenjunga Glacier to reach Lhonak (4785 m) on Day 13. Enjoy magnificent views of Mount Kangchenjunga and 15 other peaks in the Himalayas from Pang Pema, located at an altitude of 5160 m.

The sixteenth day of this trek involves crossing the passes of Sinion La (4460 m), Mirgin La (4480 m) and Sinelapcha La (4646 m). Reach Oktang Base Camp the next day. Time to return to Kathmandu and prepare for departure. Continue your journey downhill to Medibung and drive to Ilam. Catch the flight to Kathmandu either from Bhadrapur or Biratnagar.

Although far less crowded than Everest Base Camp trail and Annapurna Circuit, Kanchenjunga Circuit is equally beautiful and allows ample opportunities to travellers to see the mighty Himalayas. Book with us and grab the opportunity to see close-up views the enchanting Himalayas while travelling through a trail less trodden.

“I recently did the EBC trek and my experience with Outshine was phenomenal. Gokul went above and beyond to get my needs taken care of and kept an open line of communication since my schedule was very tight. Since I arrived to Kathmandu he stayed late waiting for me. Next day I embarked into the trek and met my guide and sherpa. The fact that they handled every single thing to make my trip very enjoyable was incredible. Not only they were our guides but they also became our friends, very knowledgeable of the area and wildlife and spoke multiple languages. Always made sure our needs were met and safety was a big priority. I have trekked all over the world but by far, Gokul and his team provided me with the best quality service and care. The trip was magnificent as well, from the views to the colorful people you meet, I just wish i could have stayed longer. Will definitely come back for more.”
