Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek

US$2490

per person

Kanchenjunga trekking begins from Tamur River through the trail along the riverside beneath the lush green Pipal trees. Modern etiquette has left Kanchenjunga conservation area untouched. Ethnic Limbu culture, known for coining the recipe of Tongba, dominates the population. The high terrain is harsher whereas the lower pristine oak and rhododendron forests give trekkers clean and fresh ambience. This forest shelters more than 250 wildlife species including birds. Grazing yaks give amazed looks as their eyes follow the trekkers as they move forward. High passes such as Mirgin-La pass which is situated at 4725m above sea level gives the mouth gaping views of Makalu, Chamlang and Everest.

Overview

Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek lies in the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area which is a protected area in the eastern Himalayan region. Kanchenjunga trekking was first attempted in 1979 and it was a British mountaineer who said that he felt heaven on earth walking the trails. Kanchenjunga trekking leads the trekkers to the world’s third tallest mountain (8586m). The name Kanchenjunga means ‘Five Treasures of the Great Snow’ which is derived from the structure of five summits that make up a complete Kanchenjunga mountain.

Accommodation

Kanchenjunga base camp trek is a moderate difficulty trek, which requires reasonable fitness just like any other trek in Nepal. Kanchenjunga trek can be completed solely by camping alone but it will add additional weight to you back during the daytime while carrying it. Tea houses are also available and are warm and cozy to spend the nights at. tea house saves money and the added load of the tent will be avoided.  provide typical Nepalese staple food as well as other continental breakfast and dinner menu. During the trekking season, carrying a tent is a wiser deed. Porters at Taplejung provide service throughout the year. Agencies facilitate the renting of porters, which ensures the responsibility and reliability of a person accompanying the trekkers. During the trekking season, renting porters beforehand will eliminate the chaos of hard bargaining right at the beginning of the most beautiful trip of a lifetime.

Air flights are available from Kathmandu to Bhadrapur and a long drive from Birtamod will lead to Taplejung from where the Kanchenjunga trekking begins. The altitude rises as the trekkers’ approach to Kanchenjunga base camp. Enough acclimatization is essential to avoid any unnecessary hassles related to health and safety. A first aid box is always beneficial to carry as the trail sometimes passes through dense forest where any places nearby are miles away. Oral rehydration solutions are a must to have during the daytime. Kanchenjunga trek can extend up to three weeks and reach a maximum height of 4725m.
