kanchenjunga mountain

The Kanchenjunga trekking region arguably offers some of the grandest mountain vistas of the Himalaya . The main approach along the eastern side of the Himal (range) to the northern base camp takes us among an avenue of peaks that frequently appear in adventure catalogues and brochures. Exotic name such as Wedge peak, Pyramid peak, Janu Himal, White Wave , the Twins and, of course, Kanchenjunga provide the inspiration to make the challenging trek to base camp. Our approach takes us up through terraced hillsides of the remoter ethnic group of Rai and Limbu and then among well preserved forest of rhododendron , birch oak and spruce. The return journey will follow a high yak herders route over the snowy pass of the Mirgin La in to the remote valley of Simbuwa Khola. The Kanchenjunga region is restricted to organised expedition group only and therefore sees few if any trekking parties.
