Nepal’s cultural heritage is as much varied as complex, including unique monasteries, traditional teahouses and welcoming, friendly locals ready to give a hand whoever you are and whatever you do. Still, most of the travellers and tourist visit this Asian country due to natural conditons and terrain trekking. Nepal’s mountains are one of the most picturesque landscapes human ever seen with breathetaking valleys, snowy rocks and mysterious fog enfolding everything in sight. Almost every single person matches trekking tracks in Nepal with Mount Everest, also known as “The top of the world”. People travell all over the remote places just to capture this spectacular panorama and take a glimpse at the tallest peak. But it is not the only mountain worth climbing and hiking in Nepal. Today we have much pleasure to inform you about Kanchenjunga expedition.

With almost 8600 m elevation, Mount Kangchenjunga is ranked 3rd on the list of highest mountains in the world. Located on eastern Nepal, just around Nepal-India borderline, eight-thousander includes glacier, snow and ice climbing, thus far it is a perfect option for those, who expects challenges and mountaineering type of expedition. Due to Kangchenjunga area restriction, it is essential to provide an authorized guide and porter, therefore it is impossible to hike in this region on your own. Previous climbing experience with at least seven-thounsanders is strongly reccomended as well as high-altitide camping due to extreme conditions are on a daily basis. Kanchenjunga Trek requires a fair bit of skill and physical coordination because of continuous high climbs and steep descents.

On the other hand, the landscapes seen during our expedition will definitely reward every single sweat drop and physical exertion. Kancchenjunga Trek will take you through spectacular Rhododendron forests, along narrow ridges with marvellous mountain views including even the east face of the remote Everest Range. Kangchenjunga massiff is also a complex of three distinct ecoregions:

The Eastern Himalayan broadleaf forests;

The Eastern Himalayan alpine shurb and meadows;

Terai-Duar savanna and grasslands;

Over 40 days of climbing will be filled with pristine beauty and natural wildness of Himalayan spirit. Because of less popularity than Mount Everest and the difficulty involved in accessing it from India, the Kangchenjunga region is not much explored by trekkers. Therefore, not only natural landscapes are present, but also lack of tourists, which equals peaceful and enjoyable climbing track for the bravest and toughest mountaineers.
