Kanchenjunga North & South Face Trek

Trip duration : 25 Days Trip Grade : Strenuous

Kanchenjunga, the world's third highest mountain lies on the border of Nepal - Sikkim. Kanchenjunga was first climbed by the south-west face in 1955 by Charles Evans and has only been open to group trekkers since 1988. Recently this beautiful unspoilt region has been designated a conservation area. Our route gradually climbs through the rich farmland of the Limbu people famous for their distinctive tall caps to the upland Buddhist communities whose inhabitants have their origins in Tibet. On higher ground we may see musk deer or blue sheep on the crossing from north to south base camp. Eastern Nepal is a remote region that has remained largely unspoilt by tourism. There are few facilities for the trekker and most of our supplies will be brought from Kathmandu. It is a long but rewarding trek that is suitable for people who are confident about their fitness. Some days may involve 8 hours of trekking. High altitudes will be experienced and we have allowed time for acclimatisation. On the crossing between north and south base amp snow may be encountered and we have the option of crossing the shorter but higher Lapsang La or the lower but very scenic Mirgin La.
