Overview

Kanchenjunga is Located in the eastern fringe of the country bordering Sikkim. Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world has always captured the imagination of the visitors. It is one of the most inaccessible and formidable of the entire Himalayas. It is a journey which requires a good degree of fitness. We travel through hamlets inhabited by people from various ethnic backgrounds like the Rais, Limbus, Gurungs, Sherpas and Tibetans. Most Villages have very less population and terraced fields, which like very impressive against the background of some of world’s highest peaks, characterize the landscape. Crossing farmlands, gurgling streams and green rolling pastures is a part of the whole adventure. The feeling of looking at Kanchenjunga, Kabru, Januu, Rathong, Makalu and a host of other peaks from close quarters is indescribable. The climax of this journey in both altitude and scenic splendor is undoubtedly the three days hike up the Kanchenjunga glacier where the views are quite simply overwhelming. For an all round trekking experience a visit to either or both Base Camps of Kanchenjunga has it all.
