How To Reach Kanchenjunga
To reach Kanchenjunga, we hike through several scree slopes and glacial moraines to reach the Tibetan settlement of Khangpachen, where we have a breathtaking view of the northern face of the Jannu (7,710m).
The hike from the base camp takes hikers to an alpine region where dwarf shrubs flourish in abundance, and the temperatures are extreme. The hike leads through large mountain forests with rhododendrons, orchids, pines and magnolias, high valleys and gentle meadows where you can admire herds of yaks and Lepchas.
The Kanchenjunga region is inhabited by a mixed Sherpa community (Rai Limbu Gurung) and offers hikers the opportunity to understand their culture and lifestyle. Trekking offers breathtaking views of massive mountain mountains such as Lhotse (8.516m), Everest (9.848m), Kanchensi (8586m), Makalu (8481m) and many others.
Situated at an altitude of 8,586 meters, one has to ask oneself how to reach Kanchenjunga. For the people of Sikkim, it is more than just a high peak; it is also considered the residence of the patron goddess of the state. Nominated with the best mountain environment for trekking, the summit is the base camp for trekking and a captivating hike. At the same time, climbing to the Gecha La Pass at an altitude of 5,000 m offers outstanding views of the east face of the summit.
The route to Taplejung is the most challenging, and there are three possibilities. The other trekking route starts at Tapleen-Suketar airport, where you can fly in, but the logistics are fluid as a new road is being developed.
From Taplejung, hike along the Mitlung Trail, which follows TapleJung Sekathum, where you descend into the Ghunsa River Valley. The valley flows into the ice massifs of Kumbarkarna, Jannu and Kanchenjunga and follows the river to Pang Pema, the northern base camp.
Kanchenjunga trekking routes are exciting, challenging and popular for organizing excursions and are located in the Kanchenjunga Nature Reserve, which covers 2035 m ². The routes are open to all, and we have arranged Himalayan Journey Treks expeditions for numerous trekking groups in the corresponding areas. Trekking in the region is Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek and includes the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trekking Trail, the southern Pangpema Base Camp and the northern Oktang Base Camp.
The same hike can be made in 18 days with a scenic flight to Taplejung. The trek from South Base Camp to Oktang (4,800m) and back to Yalung (at the same altitude) takes at least 16 days. After reaching Kanchenjunga, we hiked from the mountain north of the base camp and returned on the same route by flying from TapleJung to Kathmandu, which took at least 23 days.
If you want to do the entire trek through the Kanchenjunga region, including Milke and Danda Ridge, the trek takes 4-5 days from Basantapur to the north-south base camp and crosses five high passes on Route M virgin La.
The trek from Ghunsa to Gyabla on the fifth day begins with an elevation gain. At an altitude of 2,730 meters, the picturesque and quiet path from Amjisola dares to Gyablas for 4-5 hours. On the way, you can return to base camp, turn south from base camp, climb higher and higher and cross Sele La (Means Pass) at 4,720 m to reach Cheram.
Most treks pass through areas between 1,000 and 3,000 m. The Evers Base Camp Trek and Annapurna Circuit Trek are the most popular trekking routes reaching 5,000 m. The walk begins at the foothills of cultivated terraced areas along a path that follows a centuries-old trade and communication path through deep gorges, forests, lush valleys, suspension bridges, mudflats and high passes from one area another, connecting villages, monasteries and communities.
This trekking package offers gradual views of the mountain and the true beauty and views of the Nepalese peaks, crossing the peak from which the Kanchenjunga base camp emerges. It is the South-North way and perseverance, patience, and the will to reach the great reach of the highest mountain.
Janu Himal includes several mountain peaks in the immediate vicinity, beautiful landscapes, waterfalls, suspension bridges, fertile farmland, fascinating people and their extensive culture. If you are planning this hike, you should have sufficient exercise and more or less experience with hiking in the mountains. The hike starts in Taplejung (long derived from Kathmandu), where you will take a flight from the capital Biratnagar and Biratnagar to Suketar, where after your hike through a rice country decorated with beautiful and traditional villages and in the distance you can see the Kanchenjunga snow caps and other mountains.
Our Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is an excellent 26-day holiday in eastern Nepal with 21 days trekking over 220 km in an area rarely visited by tourists, including a wide range of wonderful landscapes, lush tropical jungle and rhododendron, chestnut and oak forests high above base camp. It is the most visited base camp on the north and south sides of the highest peak in the world. It is usually run by small groups of people looking for customs and dates. Still, we provide experienced advice and preparation for this hike with a high level of professionalism and care for our excellent staff. The number of visitors in this area is limited to those who hike to KanchensjungA, so you will need a local guide or 2 trekkers to meet and obtain the required permits.
