Overview

Kanchenjunga Trek is one of the finest trekking routes in Nepal. Its seldom explored and pristine trekking area situated on Nepal’s border with Sikkim and Tibet. The major attraction of this trek is Mount Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world with the staggering height of 8586m/28,169ft. The mountain lies within the famous Kanchenjunga Conservation Area. Trekking in Kanchenjunga region offers amazing landscapes and alluring panoramic views of the Himalayas. You can enjoy numerous miniature and huge frosty peaks above and below 8,000m. It is habitat for many endangered species of animals and birds which will make your trek adventurous.

The most suitable time for Kanchenjunga Trekking is in autumn (September to November) and in spring (March to May).

During your trek    
The trek begins from Suketar. As you walk through terraced fields, meadows and pleasant rhododendron forest you will be accommodated by gregarious local Tibetan people who welcome you with great hospitality. As you ascend you will witness spectacular scenery of frozen lakes, crystal clear streams and glimpse of glaciers and a close up view of Mount Kanchenjunga and Mount Makalu.
Unlike other trekking regions, you will encounter very few people on this trail because of its remoteness and altitude. The trekker should be physically fit enough to walk for at least 6 hours a day. The arduous climb above Cheram will be your greatest challenge of this trek. But don’t worry, as your long and hard walk will be paid with views of lucid glaciers.
Besides glacial excursions this region is also popular for wildlife lovers. If you are lucky enough you will face some endangered birds like the Impedance Pheasant, Red Billed Blue Magpie, Shy Dragon and endangered animals like the Barking Deer, Himalayan Black Bear, Musk Deer and Red Panda.
