Overview

Kanchenjunga Circuit Trekking is an excursion to the heavily isolated mountainous region of Nepal. It is located at the border region with India. The trek surpasses your imagination about the beauties of the remote areas and the breathtaking Himalayan white peaks at the vicinity of Kanchenjunga. Fully camping trek is wonderful on this route.

Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586m) is the third highest mountain in the world. It has got five stunning and snowy summits that bear the quality to be the queen of the mountains. The Kanchenjunga circuit trek includes both South and North base camp. It is a perfect example of the fabulous remote trek in the Himalayas. The trail is rugged, rocky and includes various ups and down on the trail. But the trail in northern part is quite improved. The traverse between south and north base camp is amazingly pleasant, where you can have an experience of walking through the highly wild areas. The trail is not only peaceful, but also the views of wild animals or birds are awesome in the Kanchenjunga National Park.

Kanchenjunga trek is spectacular to explore the indigenous culture and lifestyle. Limbu, Rai and Sherpa are mainly populated groups in this area. They offer Tongba while passing their village, which is so amazing in the cooler places, which gives warmth. It is a traditional alcoholic drink, made by millet. In the lower part, mixed villages are found and in the alpine zone, Tibetan Buddhists’ communities are found.

The Himalayan views of Kanchenjunga North, Chang Himal, Kirat chuli and other neighboring peaks can be explored during the Kanchenjunga circuit trek. Lhonak, Ramche, Pangpema, Yalung glacier are some of the super scenic places and viewpoints. Vertex Holiday excellently organizes these treks with fully arranged trips.
