Kanchenjunga Trekking is an isolated area of Eastern Nepal is the home to Kanchenjunga, the third highest peak of the world (8586m). This enormous peak dominates the southern range of the Himalayas bordering the Sikkim area of India. This sector of Nepal has only been opened to trekking since 1988, which explains its richness of conventional culture. This is one of the longer treks that we recommend and it has many possibilities for extra days to investigate different areas that are encircled by many great mountains of eastern Nepal. The Kanchenjunga area has a profusion of high summits of which three are above 8000m and eleven above 7000m Your trekking route is exhausted by the Tamur River that meets the Arun River below Mulghat. Numerous glaciers feed this river. The glaciers north of the main peak are clockwise Nupchu, Lhonak, Chichima, Gimsung, Pyramid, Kanchenjunga, and Ramtang.
