Trip: Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek


A massive block of ice and rock, block the border of Nepal & India, with an elevation of 8586 m, in eastern Nepal is the world’s third highest mountains Mt Kanchenjunga. Very few climbing attempts are made in these mighty mountains because it is regarded as the tutelary gods of Sikkimese. Though the first climbing attempt was made in 1905, the first successful summit was made by a British team in 1955. To show the gestures and respect to his holy mountains most of the expeditions end just below the summit.

The foothills of Kanchenjunga are under the restricted zone of Nepal and only allowed to trek with special permit. Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trekking is one of the most pristine trekking routes of Nepal and totally free from the crowds found in Everest & Annapurna region.

The lower part is covered with greenery view of a tropical jungle of Rhododendron, chestnut, and oak, whereas higher elevation is an alpine area. Nepalese indigenous group Rai, Limbu and the Buddhism influenced by Tibetan are also the attraction of this trek.

They were reliable, timely, organized and above all fun!

My experience with Mega Adventures could not have been any better! When I arrived in Kathmandu, I was warmly received by a member of the staff who, after dropping my bags off at the hotel, kindly led me around the city. After spending a few days exploring that wonderful city and meeting my climbing guide, we flew out to Lukla to begin our trek. Our goal was to summit Island Peak with a stop at Everest base camp along the way for acclimatization. Throughout the trek, my guide and porter were incredibly supportive and engaging and taught me so much about the region and culture. Although we ultimately were unable to summit Island peak due to weather conditions (one of the greatest challenges of climbing) we did reach approximately 6,000m, the highest I had ever been. I was immensely satisfied with the climb. Though I have taken a mountaineering course previously and had the opportunity to climb many of the highest peaks in Washington State, I was new to the Himalayan Mountains. My guide taught me several new techniques to enhance safety while climbing and provided a safe, encouraging environment. I would highly recommend this guiding company, as they were reliable, timely, organized and above all fun!
