Trekking through the wilderness of Kanchenjunga national park
One of the least visited trekking destinations of Nepal, Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek is perfect for solitude lovers. The major highlight of the trek is base camp of mount Kanchenjunga scaling 8586 m which is also world’s third tallest mountain. This trek could be a comparatively tough one with few high mountain passes that demand physical fitness and fine health condition. The three week trek starts from Suketar airport in Taplejung district. The highest altitude is at Kanchenjunga Base Camp at Pang Pema 5143m.
Kanchenjunga Circuit trek attracts low number of trekkers annually because it doesn’t supply several facilities to the trekkers as compared to the mount Everest region and Annapurna region. Therefore, trekkers have to be compelled to be ready for tenting for several days and ample supply of food ought to be carried.
