Nepal’s Kanchenjunga region offers incredible trekking, and now in addition to the traditional full camping trek style, it’s possible to teahouse trek the region as well. Here is all you need to know
Kangchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world at 8586m/28,169ft and is on the border between Nepal and Sikkim (India). We only cover trekking in Nepal on this site.
The usual trekking destinations are the viewpoints near the climbing base camps on the south and/or north sides of this massive mountain.
The area is rich in wildlife with iconic species such as the snow leopard, Tibetan wolf and red panda at large on the high mountain slopes, pine forests and bamboo jungle. Go in the spring and enjoy the visual feast of over 40 species of rhododendron in bloom, including Nepal’s national flower, the scarlet Lali Gurans (Rhododendron).
You’ll find the villages along the trails equally vibrant and varied from the Limbu peoples of the lower valleys to the Gurung, Rai and Sherpas of the higher hills. If you’re lucky you may be welcomed in to dance and sing on one of the many festivals, or to try the warm mildly alcoholic tongba from the a dark wooden, brass ringed pots. Or try a cardamon tea made from the pods of the many plants growing throughout the lower jungles.
Arun Valley Trek

Tsum valley and Manaslu trek
The Manaslu Valley Trek is more remote and spectacular than many, with rough steep tracks and less than luxurious accommodation. It is culturally fascinating with strong continuing links to Tibet in the upper Buri Gandaki and the Tsum Valley, and even has the Larkya La (5160m) as a challenge. The views of Mt Manaslu, eighth highest mountain in the world, are marvellous and close.
Kanchenjunga base camp trek is an ideal trekking route for those with time and desire to venture into some of the remote regions of Nepal. Kanchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world at 8586 meters, and is a magnificent peak striding the border between Nepal and India.
