Kanchanjunga Phidim Trek

Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), ‘The Five Great Treasure Houses of Snow’, is the world’s third highest mountain and is situated in the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area, an area that comprises pristine forests, alpine meadows and high altitude wetlands alongside this magnificent and spectacular Himalayan massif.

The mountain forms Nepal’s eastern border with Sikkim and this region is one of the least populated in Nepal. You will trek up through lush, green, semi-tropical Rai and Limbu villages in the mid hills, and remote Tibetan villages higher up in the semi arid plateaus at the foot of the mountain.

This remote, stunningly beautiful and ecologically diverse conservation area is jointly managed by the local communities and the WWF and is so home to the endangered and secretive snow leopard and red panda, as well as the vulnerable Himalayan black bear, clouded leopard and Assamese macaque.

This circular trek takes you up through lush valleys full of season flowers that receive the heaviest monsoon rains throughout the Himalayan range, north into spectacular high alpine landscapes full woodlands and mountain streams and then up over high passes to Kanchenjunga Base Camp, before heading back down again to lower elevations and returning to the treks start point at Taplejung.
