Kanchanjunga Circuit Trek

Kanchanjunga is the third highest mountain in the world at 8598 m and the most challenging peaks to climb. Situated Nepal and Sikkim border, it offers some of the world's most exciting trekking off the beaten track to the remote northeast Nepal and the land of the ancient Lomi race. Trekking to the remote north or south base camps requires a fully organized camping trek with all meals cooked by our trained Sherpa cooks.

From the base Camp at Pang Pema we admire the beauty of the Huge North Face of Kanchenjunga. The latter half of the trek traverses the southern side of the mountain via Mirgin La Pass (4663m). The view of Pyramid Peak, Jannu and the South face of Kanchenjunga(8586m) is spectacular. The trek also highlights the cultural of the remote villages dominated by the ethnical tribes including Rai, Limbu and Sherpas.
