Kanchenjunga, the world's third highest mountain, lies on Nepal's eastern border with Sikkim. It is a beautiful, unspoilt wilderness area which boasts some of the most impressive mountain scenery on Earth. The name Kanchenjunga means 'five great treasure houses of snow' in Tibetan which indicates the visual riches of this area.
This outstanding trek begins and ends at the small airstrip at Suketar-Taplejung, in the remote north east corner of Nepal. It takes you through fascinating Rai and Limbu villages and pristine forests to the awe-inspiring South Face Base Camp at Ramche, before crossing the Mirgin La (pass) to the north side of Kanchenjunga and the Pang Pama Base Camp. The magnificent mountain views of Kanchenjunga and surrounding mountains, traditional villages, cascading mountain rivers and scarcity of other trekkers combine to make this trek a glorious and unforgettable experience.
