Kanchenjunga treks:-Kanchenjunga Region is restricted area so we have to need special trekking permit and minimum 2 pax if you want to do the Kanchenjunga trekking. Only Everest and K2 are taller than Kanchenjunga (8586m), the massive block of rock and ice that straddles the border between Nepal and Sikkim in India. There have been relatively few attempts to climb this mighty mountain, partly because Kanchenjunga is worshiped as a tutelary spirit by the Sikkim’s. The first serious attempt to conquer the peak was the 1905 expedition led by the occultist Aleister Crawly, but a British team finally gained the summit in 1955. Even today, most expeditions stop just below the summit as a gesture of respect.

The foothills of Kanchenjunga have been open to Trekkers since 1988, but permit restrictions mean that it is only possible to walk here as part of an organized camping trek arranged through an agency. This is an inconvenience, but it does mean that trails are blissfully free from the crowd found around Everest and Annapurna. There are two possible approach routes to Kanchenjunga. The trek to south base camp starts from the airstrip at skater (near Taplejung), taking two weeks to climb to the Yalung glacier and return. The difficult three-week trek to north base camp can be started from Basantapur (near Hile) or from Suketar. It is possible to combine these two treks by crossing the 4663m mirgin la or the 5160m Lapsang la.

 Kanchenjunga Treks trail has more exciting and challenging daredevil and popular organizing trip to situated in the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area which is spread over 2,035m sq km from enrich in wildlife diversities also many threatened species of birds such as Impedance Pheasant, Red –Billed blue Magpie, Shy Dragon, Amphibian and Mammals are found in this region and preserved including Snow-leopard, Himalayan black Bear, Musk Deer, Red Panda etc.
