Trip Overview

The Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek will take us to the north of Kanchenjunga base camp. Kanchenjunga is the third highest mountain of the world. The peak stands at an elevation of 8586 meters. The first ascent to Kanchenjunga was made in 1955, May 25 by Joe Brown and George Band.

The Kanchenjunga range comprises of Kanchenjunga Main, Kanchenjunga West, Kanchenjunga Central, Kanchenjunga South and Kangbachen. In Sikkim, Kanchenjunga is treated as a sacred peak.

The trek begins at Suketar and ends at Thorpu. The Kanchenjunga trek is generally considered appropriate for wilderness and adventure. We will also get a chance to closely see the remote areas of Nepal and rural lifestyle of Nepal during the trek. The rich culture of villages that we will pass by during the trek will also amaze us. As the trek takes us to a greater height, there is much possibility of altitude sickness. Therefore, good health conditions and prior trekking experience is recommended if you are planning to trek in the Kanchenjunga region

FAQs

Trekking is an adventure activity in which people walk through villages and climb few hills. The path is usually steep hill and we will likely encounter snows at higher altitude.
In my opinion, trekking is good for everyone who is physically fit, healthy and loves adventure and outdoor activities.
You will be trekking countryside, high elevation, wild and remote areas of the Himalaya. Guide does not only show you trekking paths, he also helps you to be safe and entertain you during the trekking. And this will make your trip joyful.

Difficulty of trekking depends on specific trek. We define difficulty of trekking through trip grade. Basically, there are 3 types of trekking - Easy trekking, moderate trekking and hard trekking. But climbing is of course harder and challenging but It also can be categorized from less challenging to hard challenging.
Indeed, travel insurance is mandatory. It must cover Helicopter rescue and medical insurance, in case of some emergency. We would like to suggest you World Nomads because it covers medical evacuation and heli rescue up to 6000 m.
It depends on specific trekking routes. Some areas like Upper Mustang, Manaslu Circuit, Upper Dolpo etc require special permit, whereas other require only conservation area/national park permit. All trekking routes require TIMS. But don't worry ! We will manage all permits for you.
During the entire trek, we usually walk 4 to 6 hours each day. It will be between 5 to 15 kilometers each day.
Standard twin shared accommodation is provided in hotel in Kathmandu. In higher elevation, there is not luxurious hotel. So tea house and lodge accommodation is provided in the higher elevation.
Of course not. We provide a porter who will carry you stuffs. But remember, a porter is provided for 2 trekkers, and each porter can carry only up to 20 kg.
Some of the trekking routes were damaged but most of them were not. Among them, Langtang valley was badly damaged, but now it is reconstructing and safe now. Earthquake 2015 caused avalanche in Everest and killed several mountaineers and also destroyed some tea houses. But rest of the places of Everest are relatively unaffected. Western Nepal was not affected by earthquake at all.
There are several possibilities which are almost endless. Everest Base Camp, Everest Three Passes Annapurna Base Camp, Annapurna Circuit, Langtang Valley, Manaslu Circuit and Upper Mustang are the most popular routes. But there are numerals trekking places all round the country.
It is not mandatory tipping to guide and porter. But they appreciate your small gratuity after your trek ends. By the way, tipping is a great way to show your appreciation for team and devoted attention of guide and porter to your successful trip. But you are free to give tip to guide and porter how much you would want.
