Description

The Kanchenjunga mountain (8,586m) is the third highest mountain in the world, second only to K2 (8,611m) and Mount Everest (8,848m).

To say that Kanchenjunga is spectacular simply isn’t enough. No words can truly express how amazing it is. However, this 29 day trek is not about climbing to its summit. Instead, this trek is about reaching it’s North base camp and seeing all of the wonders along the way.

Firstly, this trip is rigorous. There will be some difficult parts along the way, as we will be trekking through some of the most remote areas of the Himalayas. As a result, previous mountain trekking experience is required, as we will be crossing rough, exposed terrain, including some landslides. However, because of the length of this trek, you will also have plenty of time to get properly acclimatized.

The highlights of this trip are in abundance. There are simply too many to list. But I would like to give you an idea of some of the things you will see during this breathtaking expedition. You will see Kathmandu, where you will get to enjoy an all day tour. You will see bamboo forests, and the Tibetan village of Ghunsa, where you will get to enjoy a rest day. You will get to meet local villagers in remote areas where tourists don’t go. If you are lucky, you might even get to see a panda or snow leopard. And, of course, you will get to admire the Kanchenjunga mountain, along with several other glorious peaks watching you from above.

I know you will have the time of your life on this 29 day adventure to the base of Kanchenjunga. And it would be my pleasure guiding you through it. Please send me a message if you want to join me.

And if you want to trek to the base camp of the incomparable Mount Everest, you can also join me on this 16 day journey.
