Overview

The Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is one of the main Himalayan paths that runs through Nepal's eastern region. In Nepali, the word "Kanchenjunga" means "clear sky." Kanchenjunga (8586m) is the world's third highest mountain and is also known as the "Five Treasures of the Great Snow," which include gold, silver, precious stones, grain and the Holy Scriptures. Kanchenjunga is a renowned mountain in Nepal's north-east region, bordering India's Sikkim. Kanchenjunga can be seen from India, Bhutan and Tibet because the peak is partially in Nepal and partly in India.

The trek to Kanchenjunga Base Camp passes through the Arun Valley, which is regarded as one of Nepal's most attractive trekking areas. The Kanchenjunga Conservation Area, which encompasses an area of 2035 square kilometers, is one of the trek's key highlights. The area is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, as well as species such as Himalayan black bears, musk deer, snow leopards, wild boar, red panda and other animals. From alpine grasslands to subtropical woods, low river valleys, glacial moraine, and rocky scree slopes, the route to basecamp presents a diverse landscape.

Trekkers can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of enormous mountain peaks such as Lhotse (8516m), Everest (8848m), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Makalu (8481m), and many others throughout the journey. The trip ascends through the gorgeous and cultivated foothills into the great mountain fortress of peaks such as Jannu, Kumbhakarna, Rathong, and, of course, Kanchenjunga, delivering some of the Himalaya's most awe-inspiring and majestic views on the way to South Base Camp (5143m). Until recently, the trek could only be completed by asserting considerable effort in transporting all of life's necessities, such as food and camping gear, but with the addition of tea houses along the journey in response to its increasing popularity, the supply chain of the journey has become significantly easier. 

The Kanchenjunga trip is for those seeking adventure, a desire to explore lesser-traveled trails, and the resolve and conditioning to face the demands of a physically demanding route through one of Nepal's most remote locations. The Kanchenjunga region is home to a mixed community of Sherpa, Rai, Limbu, and Gurung, providing trekkers with an opportunity to learn about their culture and way of life.
