Kanchenjunga is on
the far eastern boarder of Nepal and was opened to trekkers in
1988. This remote trek to the base of Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), the
world's third highest peak, offers close-up views of both the
north and south aspects of the peak leading through lush valleys
to alpine yak grazing pastures and some of the most remote rails
in Eastern Nepal.
This trek takes us from the tropical lowlands to the high glaciers
and the surrounding peaks of Kanchenjunga, Kambachen, Yalung kang
and Jannu. Starting with a descent through terraced fields and
forests to the Tamur river, the trail passes through many villages
before gaining altitude to alpine terrain around Ghunsa,
Kanchenjunga Glacier, Lhonak and Pangpema (5,140 m), the highest
point of this trek. We descend through a fascinating landscape and
terraced fields to the trek end point - Taplejung.
