Kanchenjunga North Trek



Share with friends:

Kanchanjunga means the mountain of jewels. It is said that the famous sage Guru Padmasambhava buried the treasures of knowledge in this most beautiful of mountains. It is so revered by the locals that the Lamas of Sikkim do an annual tribute dance to this sacred peak. This trek takes you to the snowline through thick forests of rhododendron trees in the lower region and yak grazing in high pastures. The wild flowers are in full bloom during the months of April and May, and clear views of the mountains are also more likely during this period.

Kanchenjunga North trek is a journey of discovery. The Kanchanjunga Range is possibly the last unexplored region of Eastern Nepal. Breathtaking views of the vast Himalayan range can be seen from the majority of the routes trails. This is a sparsely populated area with mainly Sherpa, Limbu, Rai and Gurung communities. The people are not accustomed to receiving tourists at their doorsteps and show great hospitality.
