“Surely, of all the wonders of the world, the horizon is the greatest.”

Go on a valid off the beaten path trek alongside stunning mountain vistas on our 24 days Kanchenjunga Trek Going towards the segregated districts of eastern Nepal, you get the opportunity to stroll on an extremely grand mountain trail loaded with rhododendron timberland and witness tremendous social assorted qualities as you go passing a few nearby towns inside this wonderful locals. In conclusion, see the shimmering stars above you as you set down to rest and make a vital trip to Nepal amid your trek.

Arranged at the stature of 8,586m, Mt. Kanchenjunga is the third most elevated mountain on the planet and is the second most elevated mountain in Nepal as it is only 300 meters shorter than Mt. Everest. The word Kanchenjunga actually signifies “Five Treasures of Snow” which means the Tibetan dialect as there are five summit tops inside and out in Kanchenjunga. A trek to see this extolling mountain takes you on an extremely burdensome excursion as it is profoundly secluded far from the advanced frameworks, for example, transportation. This makes making a trip toward the eastern districts of Nepal more troublesome as it is not broadly available, henceforth the person who sets out to visit this place can without much of a stretch see that there are less number of outside trekkers here if contrasted with other well-known trekking areas of Nepal like Annapurna and Everest locales. Thus alone, it is regularly believed that the Kanchenjunga Trek is one of the best off the beaten treks done in Nepal. At first, we take off to Suketar airport and then make a beeline for Lalikharka and Khesewa villages. Afterward, we ascent furthermore to reach Cheram village via Yamphudin & Tortong where we are to acclimatize. The following day we shall explore around Ramche and visit the Yalung Base Camp (4500m). Continuing on with our trek, we also visit the Kanchenjunga Base Camp on our sixteenth day of the trek. Later on, we start descending down to Suketar via Pangpema to Lhonak and Phurumbu villages for a flight back to Kathmandu.

Trekkers with a better than expected physical wellness and legitimate well-being conditions to adapt to high altitude can be a piece of this trek. Furthermore, the regular months of April to May and September to November are considered as the finest time for a trek to Kanchenjunga area of Nepal. Need to experience this other common trek to see the excellent statue of Mt. Kanchenjunga, then contact, Himalayan Holyland Treks & Expedition at this moment and join this trek with our professional trekking staff of personnel’s.
