Kanchenjunga Trekking

Kanchenjunga Trek is among the best trek destinations in Nepal. It takes you close to the vicinity of Mount Kanchenjungha, which stands tall at 8586m, and which is also the third- highest peak in the world and second- highest in Nepal. The literal meaning of Kanchenjunga is “The Five Treasures of Snow”. Kanchenjunga is a cumulative form of five peaks among which four are above the height of 8450 meters.
Kanchenjungha Trek is less crowded and this Himalaya Trek takes you into a wild journey of varied experiences which includes walking through vibrant forests, terraced fields, forests of birch, bamboo and rhododendron and wild paths at lower altitudes to trekking through High passes and glaciers at high altitude. Warm hospitality of locals of Lhomi communities provides yet another reason to embark on Kanchenjungha Trek. While in Kanchenjunga, Tongba- the hot fermented millet drink typical to the east will help you in overcoming the coldness and also the tiredness from the trekking.
Kanchenjunga Trek route was opened for the foreigners only after 1988 and requires special permit from the government to visit the area. Kanchenjungha Conservation Area is a home to many wild animals including snow leopard, Himalayan bear, barking bear and Panda. It also boasts of having more than thousand species of plants and more than 600 species of butterflies.
