Kanchenjunga Third Highest Mountain Base Camp Trek

This isolated trek is on the Eastern edge of Nepal. Mount Kanchangunga the third highest peak of the world. At 8596 meters this massive peak dominates the southern range of the Himalayas. This section of Nepal only opened to trekking in 1988, which explains its richness of traditional culture. This is one of the longer treks we offer and has many possibilities for extra days to explore different areas that are surrounded by many great mountains in eastern Nepal. The Kanchangunga area has many high summits of which three are above 8,000 meters and 11 above 7,000 meters. Your trekking route goes near the Tamur River which meets Arun below Mulghat. Numerous glaciers feed this river. The glaciers north of the main peak are clockwise Nupchu, Lhonak, Chichima, Gimsung, Pyramid, Kanchenjunga and Ramtang. West and South of the main peak are Kumbhakarna (Jannu), Yamatari and Yalung glaciers. Kangbachenga (4038) in Ghunsa Valley and Walungchung (3,200m) in Tamur Valley are the highest settlements in the region. The latter was an important trading centre between the towns of Darjeeling and Tipta La in Tibet. The only access to the Kanchenjunga area is a road link to Basantapur and a direct air link to the town of Taplejung bazaar.
