Overview

Kanchenjunga circuit trek lies in far-eastern Nepal on the border with Indian Stated Sikkim. Kanchenjunga is the 3rd highest mountain in the world at an altitude of 8586m with the unspoiled natural beauty. Similarly, this pristine circuit en-routes to two poled base camps of the Kanchenjunga; Kanchenjunga North Base Camp at 5388m on Kanchenjunga Glacier and Kanchenjunga South Base Camp at 4850m on Yulang Glacier.

Surprisingly, the Kanchenjunga means “The five treasures of the Great Snow” which refers to the five peaks of the Kanchenjunga and each with its own meaning. The main peak (8,586 m), West peak (8,505 m), central peak (8,482 m), South peak (8,494 M) and Kangbachen (7,903 m) representing five repositories of God; Gold, Silver, Gems, Grain and Holy Book.

The trek requires fitness and little experience of trekking since the trails are remote, isolated, rocky and icy, strenuous and challenging. Likewise, the Kanchenjunga trek is full of mesmerizing and unspoiled beauty throughout the trails by the massive glaciers, deep gorges, waterfalls, Mountain Rivers, high meadows, dense forest pine and birch, rough-rocky trails and steamy jungles leave trekkers speechless and clueless to the creation of nature.

Meanwhile, The Kanchenjunga Conservation Area is filled with wild flora and fauna such as 30 varieties of rhododendron, 69 types of orchid, snow leopard, mountain goats, and musk deer. Enthusiastically, the Ghunsa valley offers acclimatization in comfy lodges and cottages, delicious food, and serves a panoramic view of the astoundingly beautiful green surrounding backed by snowy mountains massifs.  The Ghunsa holds ancient history represented by the Tashi Choeling Gompa built around 1774 AD and another ancient monastery built over the rock in a skull shape.

Along with this, the story of Hajare Odhar (1000 Cave) associated with the killing of then Limbu King by the locals where the Queen avenges the King’s death by inviting the locals on the feast and killing 1000 people by poisoning them, hence, the cave holds a name since then.

Trekkers reach the North Base camp (KNBC) and view the majestic Kanchenjunga’s peak with a snow sheet covering the land all around leave trekkers flabbergasted. The next day after a night stays in KNBC, trekker hike down to Ghunse again to head for the South Base camp from the Ghunsa Intersection. Trek to Kanchenjunga South Base Camp (KSBC) is magnificently beautiful and alluring after crossing the Selele. The KSBC is as beautiful as KNBC but with little more comfort during the night stay. Finally, Trekkers re-trace back from a different route of the Tortong, Lalikharka enjoying the scenic and Himalayan views before en-routing to Suketar.
