Kanchenjunga trekking area to open trekkers in 1988, though people have trekked in the area in connection with mountaineering expeditions since the turn of the century. Kanchenjunga is a long way from Kathmandu and the nearest roads and airports are a long way from the mountain. The trails climb from 1200m to 5180m above sea level. You can trek either north or south Kanchenjunga base camp, but it takes luck, determination and a lot of time to visit both sides of the peak. The northern side is particularly remote it takes almost two weeks of walking to get to the base camp at Pang Pema. Amazing peaks are to be found in this far eastern part of Nepal bordering Sikkim- the north east of India. Kanchenjunga (8586m) is the third highest mountain in the world. A journey to this area is a special treat. Starting from the tropical lowlands through great rhododendron (National flower of Nepal) forests and the lovely villages of east Nepal up to the glacier and overwhelming views. Kanchenjunga itself is known as "five great treasure of snow" This recently opened destination provides you with an adventure which will stay with you forever.
