Kanchenjunga straddles the border with Sikkim in the remote North East region of Nepal . The third highest mountain in the world it is one of the most inaccessible and formidable of the entire Himalayas. The trek in is a long and often an arduous one. Kanchenjunga's proximity deters all but the most avid mountain enthusiasts. A journey, which takes you through scattered settlements of thatched farmhouses with colourful flo wer gardens, wild coniferous woodland and on to remote Buddhist settlements where people scratch a living from the barren land. The climax of this trek in both altitude and scenic splendor is undoubtedly the three days hike up the Kanchenjunga glacier where the views are quite simply overwhelming.
At 8598 m. Kanchanjunga, is the third highest peak in the world. It lies in a sensitive restricted area astride the Nepal/ Sikkim border, only a few miles from Tibet. Our trip will avoid the restricted area and head for the Yalung glacier immediately to the south of Kanchanjunga.
The journey starts with a trek over the Mahabharat Lekh range with majestic views of both the Everest and Kanchanjunga massifs with the Arun Valley between them. We trek through richly cultivated hillsides, Rhododendron forests and yak pastures that lye below the glacier. The return route heading west passes through some delightful villages of Taplejung. The panoramic views of Everest, Makalu and Kanchanjunga are magnificent on our descent to the road head.
