Kanchenjanga Base Camp Trek

This trek approaches the South Face Base Camp of the world's third highest peak, Kanchenjunga [8598m] which lies in the eastern frontierKanchenjunga Base Camp Trek of Nepal. Mt. Kanchenjunga, one of the world's most challenging peaks to climb, geographically lies on the Nepal-Sikkim (India) border. It would be hard to be at the incredible mountain views from the inner sanctum high on the Kangchenjunga Glacier. Within this spectacular mountain amphitheater you are enclosed by ridge upon snow -capped ridge that lead to the crowning summit of Kangchenjunga. To reach these rarefied heights we take an exceptional trek through the remote region of eastern Nepal.  

The trek begins right after landing at a STOL airstrip in Taplejung and goes through fascinating green, crop growing villages and pristine forests to the awe-inspiring South Face Base Camp at Ramche at [4360m], before crossing to the north side of Kanchenjunga via the Mirgin La, the highest pass at [4663m]. The glacial excursion around Ramche is truly an unforgettable experience. The return trek via Ghunsa is easier as most of the path passes along the river valley.
