On the far eastern border of Nepal lies Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586m), the third highest peak in the world. The valley approaching the mountain base camp has been opened to trekking, specifically for organized treks. The long trek to the lap of Kangchenjunga takes one through some of the country’s richest and most pristine forests. The region is quite uninhabited, so the visitor must bring along all food and camping equipment. Most groups fly in and out of Taplejung, which  may requires a flight change from Biratnagar. Two separate routes head northeastwards from Taplejung, one to the North Base Camp, the other to the South Base Camp. These routes can be combined into a circuit.
Kanchenjunga trekking route is situated at the far eastern border of Nepal. Trekking to Kanchenjungha provides probably the best natural beauty. Similarly Upper Kanchenjungha and Lapsang La and Yalung Glacier are one of the adventure trips in this region. This route Yalung Glacier and over the Lapsang La and down the difficult route back to Taplejung is an unforgettable experience! However, as the trip crosses the 4,000m mark several times, one must take care of high altitude sickness. This area offers the cultural diversity of Rai, Limbu, Chhetri and Brahmin villagers, with the higher regions inhabited by a people of Tibeto-Mongoloid ancestry. This trek provides exploration of extreme eastern part Nepal and should be taken is for experienced trekkers who seek complete escape into the wildest, richest part of the Himalayas. This trek is also has great for those explorers having natural history interest, with ecological zones from the subtropics to glacial wilderness. Expect close-up views of Kanchenjunga. The trek starts by heading towards the Tamur River past Ghunsa for the north Kangchenjunga Base Camp after flying into Taplejung in a chartered aircraft. There will be optional mountaineering opportunities and is the best option for hikers seeking extended challenge.
