Kanchenjunga North & South Base Camp

A special trek to the North and South Base Camps of the world's third highest peak Kouang Si Waterfalls and its views

 

Kanchenjunga Base Camp TrekkingMt. Kanchenjunga, at (8598m.) is the world's third highest mountain and lies on the border between Nepal and the Indian state of Sikkim; this classic Nepal trek visits both the North and South Base Camps of this incredible mountain. The trek starts in the tropical lowlands after scenic flight to Suketar, from where we head north through lush forests and neatly terraced hillsides towards the mighty Himalaya.

 

Jannu Himal ViewsThe views become more spectacular the higher we go and as we trek onto the glacial moraines the huge bulk of Kanchenjunga towers high above. Only opened to trekking groups in 1988, the Kanchenjunga region offers the keen walker a unique opportunity to visit a pristine mountain wilderness, passing through seldom visited villages en route and ending with some of the most impressive high mountain scenery on earth. Trails back with spectacular mountain scenery as we gradually descend to Taplejung and flight back to Kathmandu from Suketar.
