Trekking > the great kanchanjunga - 25 Days

the great kanchanjunga


At 8,598m/28,172ft 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 head for the Shangri-La of the Yalung glacier immediately to the south of Kanchanjunga. Our journey starts with a trek over the Mahabharat Lekh range with majestic views of both the Everest and Kanchanjunga massifs and the Arun Valley between them. Recently this beautiful unspoiled region has been designated a conservation area. Our route gradually limbs through the rich farmland of the Limbu people famous for their distinctive tall 'topi' or caps to the upland Buddhist communities whose inhabitants have their origins in Tibet. We trek through richly cultivated hillsides, Rhododendron forests and yak pastures below the glacier. On higher ground we may see musk deer or blue sheep on the crossing from north to south base camp. The return route heading west passes through some of the delightful villages of Taplejung. The panoramic views of Everest, Makalu and Kanchanjunga are magnificent on the easy walk down to the road head.
