This isolated trek takes place in Eastern Nepal which is the home to Mt Kanchenjunga, the third highest peak in Nepal. At 8596 meters this massive peak dominates the southern range of the Himalayas. This section of Nepal has only been open to trekking since 1988, which explains its richness of traditional culture. This is one of the longer treks we offer and has many possibilities for extra days to explore different areas that are surrounded by the great mountains of eastern Nepal. The Kanchangunga area has a profusion of high summits of which three are above 8,000 meters and 11 above 7,000 meters.

Your trekking route is drained by Tamur River that meets Arun below Mulghat. Numerous glaciers feed the river. The glaciers north of the main peak are clockwise Nupchu, Lhonak, Chichima, Gimsung, Pyramid, Kanchenjunga and Ramtang. West and South of the main peak are Kumbhakarna (Jannu), Yamatari and Yalung glaciers. Kangbachenga (4038) in Ghunsa valley and Walungchung (3,200m) in Tamur valley are the highest settlements in the area. The latter was an important trading centre between the towns of Darjeeling and Tipta La in Tibet. The only access to the Kanchenjunga area is a road link to Basantapur and a direct air link to the town of Taplejung bazaar. Length of Trek: Basantapur – Taplejung 26 days / average hiking per day 5-6 hrs Maximum elevation reached 5140 m.
