Kanchenjunga Base Camp

Immerse yourself in the landscape en route to the base camp of the 3rd highest mountain in the world. Of all the world’s great peaks, Kanchenjunga is perhaps the least known; the third highest in the world at 8,598m. It sits astride the Nepal/Sikkim border only a few miles from Tibet.

Immerse yourself in the landscape en route to the base camp of the 3rd highest mountain in the world. Of all the world’s great peaks, Kanchenjunga is perhaps the least known; the third highest in the world at 8,598m. It sits astride the Nepal/Sikkim border only a few miles from Tibet. This region was opened to the trekkers in 1988, though people have trekked in the area in connection with mountaineering expedition since the turn of the century. Kanchenjunga in eastern Nepal is a long way from Kathmandu and the nearest road and airports are quite a distance from the mountains. This results in a longer journey and more time to enjoy the trek and the culture along the way.
