22-Day THE GREAT KANCHANJUNGA Camping Trek
To North & South Base Camps Of The Third Highest Mountain

In eastern Nepal on the border with Sikkim lies Kanchenjunga, the world's third highest mountain. At 8,598m Kanchenjunga was first climbed by the south-west face in 1955 by Charles Evans and has only been open to group trekkers since 1988. Recently this beautiful unspoilt region has been designated a conservation area. Our route gradually climbs through the rich farmland of the Limbu people famous for their distinctive tall topi or caps to the upland Buddhist communities whose inhabitants have their origins in Tibet. On higher ground we may see musk deer or blue sheep on the crossing from north to south base camp.

Our point of departure is the Limbu village of Taplejung, nestled in the hill region beneath the landing strip at Suketar, 500m above.

Eastern Nepal is a remote region that has remained largely unspoilt by tourism. There are few facilities for the trekker and most of our supplies will be brought from Kathmandu. It is a long but rewarding trek that is suitable for people who are confident about their fitness and used to extended walks in the British hills. Some days may involve 8 hours of trekking. High altitudes will be experienced and we have allowed time for acclimatisation. On the crossing between north and south basecamp snow may be encountered and we have the option of crossing the shorter but higher Lapsang La or the lower but very scenic Mirgin La.

Trekking days:22
Maximum altitude: 5120m
