Why Kanchenjunga Trek?
Kanchenjungha trek is one of most enticing and exciting journeys in remote wilderness of far-eastern Nepal. Secluded within the lap of the great Himalayas, it gives visitors a chance to reach the Kanchenjungha base camp at the foothills of the Mt. Kanchenjungha, the third highest mountain in the world. A difficult but beautiful trek journey through one of the most sparsely populated regions of Nepal; and the trek, not being a complete tea-house trip, receives even fewer visitors giving visitors a sensation of solitude and moments of contemplation.
Kanchenjungha trail is often regarded as the best trek in the Himalayas by every one of its visitors. The trek gifts every wonders the nature has to offer: swift, beautiful white-water rivers, dense subtropical and temperate forests, alpine flower-covered green meadows, river and mountain valleys, innumerable waterfalls, and last but not least, enchanting view of four of the highest mountains in the world. It offers trekkers to experience great mountain passes and beautiful lakes; magnificent, titanic glaciers; and as icing on the cake, chance to see some of the most endangered species as in snow leopard, red panda, Himalayan black bear. In addition to that, this culturally affluent trail provides trekkers to experience a unique hospitality of the Rai and Limbu folks, the predominant ethnic groups in the region and unique to the Himalayas, too.
Kanchenjungha trail is undoubtedly a great trekking experience to all the travellers, an ideal trek for solitude. Difficult, yes, but easier and with less bureaucratic hassle than some of trails like Upper Dolpo trek which promises the same thing. It is indeed the best all-round trek in Nepal.
