About Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek

Kanchenjunga Trekking is a wonderful trek in the eastern region of Nepal. The sceneries are breathtaking and the trail is rugged. The preliminary attraction of this trek, Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586m) is the third highest mountain in the world. Due to the geographical remoteness, the trail to Kanchenjunga base camp is peaceful and naturally rewarding. Exploring the green hills and forests, you can carry on your trek. The indigenous groups welcome you with their perfect hospitality.

The trek begins from Taplejung and gradually leads you through the indigenous valleys. Brahmin, Chhetri and other people are from lower region and Rai, Limbu and Sherpa people live in the higher region of Kanchenjunga trek. The isolated part is diverse biologically. Following the glacial River, you trek higher in the alpine region at the bottom of Mt. Kanchenjunga. The locality is really untouched. During the Kanchenjunga trek, you cross over various passes that are almost 5000 meters. They include the Sele La Pass (4500m) and Mirgin La Pass (4480m). The Himalayan views include Mt. Kanchenjunga (it has got five summits and due to its wonderful shape, Kanchenjunga is also known as the queen of the Himalayas), Jannu and other peaks can be explored. There are two base camps: the southern and northern base camp. Lhonak (4790m) and Pangpema (5140m) are the highest places of this trekking. Trek to Kanchenjunga base camp is also to experience the grand trip and have a unique trekking experience. While returning back, the trek ends at Taplejung and drive to Bhadrapur. 

Frolic Adventure offers Kanchenjunga base camp trekking with experienced trekking guides, porters and camping team. We emphasized on acclimatization to avoid the mountain sickness.
