Kanchenjunga North Base Camp (Pangpema) - Kanchenjunga South BC (Oktang)
Unspoilt and cultural, the Kanchenjunga region offers some
of the best trekking in Nepal. We begin in the warm middle hills,
whole hillsides of terraces and picturesque villages, and work our way up thru
thick forests into the high alpine regions with valleys that just keep going and
going. No crowds, just mountains and more mountains, and bloody big too.
sight of Kanchenjunga, seen from both Oktang and Pangpema is unforgettable, as is the north
face of Jannu/Kumbhakarna, a worthy destination itself. Kanchenjunga is the third highest mountain on the planet
but unlike Everest and K2, the trek to its base camps has been strangely neglected.
This is a particularly satisfying route, join us for what is truly the trek of a lifetime!
**For 2018, we are organizing at least two private group March-April treks on this itinerary.**
