Situated at the height of 8,586 m, Mt. Kanchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world and is the second highest mountain in Nepal as it is just 300 meters shorter than Mt. Everest. The word Kanchenjunga literally means “Five Treasures of Snow” when translated to the Tibetan language as there are five summit peaks altogether in Kanchenjunga. A trek to see this glorifying mountain takes you on a very arduous journey as it is highly isolated away from the modern-day infrastructures such as transportation. This makes traveling to the eastern regions of Nepal more difficult as it is not widely accessible, hence the one who dares to visit this place can easily see that there are very less number of foreign trekkers in this area if compared to other popular trekking regions of Nepal like Annapurna and Everest regions.
For this reason alone, it is often thought that the Kanchenjunga Trek is one of the best off the beaten treks did in Nepal. Initially flying off to Biratnagar, we head to Taplejung where shall stay for the overnight. From here we make our way towards another indigenous village which is locally referred to as Ghunsa village and is located at a high altitude of 3,415 meters above sea level. Before reaching Ghunsa village on the seventh day, we are scheduled to traverse past through several local villages en-route like Chhirwa, Sekathum, and Gyabla village.
One of the major highlight of our trek includes the cross of Mirgin La Pass which is a high Himalayan pass located on our way to Ramche village and from Ramche, trekkers get a very spectacular view of the south face of Mt. Kanchenjunga. Next, we start descending down to LaliKharkaand then head onward to Suketar airport the following day. Kanchenjunga Trek and Manaslu Trekking are the restricted trekking area in Nepal. From Suketar airport, we shall take a flight back to Kathmandu and officially mark the end of our trek.
Trekkers with an above average physical fitness and proper health conditions to cope with high altitude environments can be a part of this trek. Additionally, the seasonal months of April to May and September to November are considered as the finest time of the year for a trek to Kanchenjunga region of Nepal.
