Duration: 27 Days

Availability: All Year

Grade: Easy

A long trek in the wilderness of the remote Northeastern mountainside of Nepal around the third highest mountain in the world- the Kanchenjunga.”Kanchenjunga” translates to “Five Great Treasure Houses of the High Snow”- in reference to the massif’s five peaks. This trek covers both the North and South base camps of Kanchenjunga and offers spectacular views of the massif and surrounding mountains. Not as popular and less frequented compared to the Everest and Annapurna circuit treks, the Kanchenjunga circuit trek is regarded as a complete Nepali experience that spans a large area relatively untouched by modernization. Charming little Rai, Tamang and Magar villages dot the Southern areas of the trek, while mostly Sherpa villages adorn the North.

The moutains you will see along the trail: The five peaks of Kanchenjunga (Main- 8586m, West- 8505m, Central- 8482m, South- 8494m, Kangbachen-7903m), the Kabru mountains (all of which are 7000m+), Wedge Peak (6,750m), Mera Peak(6,344m), Nepal Peak (6,910m), the Twins (7,351m), Jannu (7,710m) Koktang (6,147m), Rathong (6,679m), and numerous other smaller peaks.

The trek starts at Suketar Airport, to the Southwest of the mountain, and climbs up slowly, allowing for acclimatization. The first half of the trek takes you to Pangpema- a landscape photographer’s paradise- near the North base camp of Kanchenjunga, after which you retrace your steps back to Ghunsa, cross the Margin La Pass(4663m), and head towards Okhtang near the Southern base camp for spectacular views of the Southern face of Kanchenjunga.

The trek can be completed in fewer or more days depending on your ability and preference.

Teahouse treks are available but don’t expect luxury. Tented trips are much more comfortable. For further information about all your options, contact us by email. Or call us-
