Kanchenjunga Trekking is an adventure trekking for the brave Himalayan hearts in eastern Nepal, located in the border region of India. It guides you through the less trafficked trail, which is perfect for the trekkers who love the remote and isolated trekking into the Himalayan wilderness. Mt. Kanchenjunga, with an altitude of 8586 meters, is the prime attraction of the charismatic alpine landscape in Nepal.
Trek to Kanchenjunga base camp embarks from Suketar with the usual and popular itinerary, which escorts you through the luminous green hill landscape and the astonishing variety of the surrounding territory. The deeper you enter, you will encounter the breathtaking sceneries that welcome you with the serene and hidden gems in this rural part of eastern Nepal, preserved as the restricted region of the country.
