Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek

Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is getting more popular among adventure lovers. Mt. Kanchenjunga, located in Eastern Nepal, is wonderfully known for its greater diversity on many accounts.

You will trek by following the glacial torrent of the Tamur and Ghunsa Rivers to their source on the North West side of the Kanchenjunga Himal. You will enter into a lesser-known world where the beauty of the landscapes is rugged but simply beautiful and breathtakingly awesome.

The trek will offer magnificent views of Pyramid Peak, Jannu Himal, and Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586m). On the trek, you will cross many high passes, which are known as the Mirgin La Pass (4500m), Sinion La (4440m), Mirgin La (4480m) and Sinelapache Bhanjyang (4646m); then you will reach the Kanchenjunga Base Camp.

Prepare Your Gear and Pick the Right Guide for Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek

Having the right gear for your trek to go smoothly is essential. Make sure you have adequate supplies such as clothing, equipment, snacks, first-aid items and survival tools available before embarking on your journey. Additionally, find a knowledgeable guide with plenty of experience in leading the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek so that they can provide able pre-trip guidance and during the actual trip itself.

Familiarize Yourself with the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek Itinerary

Before going on the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek, familiarize yourself with the itinerary. You should know which places you will visit each day, how many miles you will be trekking, and what altitude gain or loss will occur during the day. This way, you can plan your supplies and rest appropriately at night since the elevation and terrain may change from one day to another.

Pack Lightly for Easier Movement on Trails

Pack your bag lightly when thinking about what to bring on your Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek. The more weight you carry on your back, the slower you move up and down the mountains. Additionally, excessive weight could cause fatigue and physical discomfort in the long run. Therefore, it is recommended to only bring essential items for the trek. You can bring clothing that layers for different temperatures. Also, you can bring trail snacks and water bottles, a small first-aid kit, sunscreen lotion and sunglasses, and any medication you need.

Practice Proper Mountain Etiquette During the Trekking Adventure

While trekking to the Kanchenjunga Base Camp, be mindful of your actions and practice proper mountain etiquette. Ensure you stay on the designated trail, as shortcuts or alternative trails can cause harm to vegetation and disturb wildlife habitats. Be mindful of other hikers you encounter—offering a friendly smile and greeting goes a long way towards creating a peaceful environment. Lastly, respect religious sites, local communities, and the mountain environment. These tips will help ensure that you and other trekkers have an unforgettable experience on this Himalayan adventure!

Il trekking del Kanchenjunga è lungo e classificato difficile, ma l’ottima organizzazione di Nepal Hiking, la competenza e la capacità di Bikesh Rana ( la nostra guida ) e di tutto lo staff l’hanno reso un’esperienza bella ed indimenticabile.

Tilak inoltre è stato un prezioso aiuto per risolvere i problemi sorti alla fine del trekking a causa dei voli sospesi nel periodo dell’eruzione del vulcano islandese, i quali ci hanno costretto a prolungare il soggiorno di altri quattro giorni.
Sembra che in Nepal ci sia un detto che dice “mai viaggiare in tre […]” e noi eravamo tre, abbiamo avuto qualche contrattempo ma tutto si è risolto per il meglio grazie all’impegno dell’agenzia di trekking.

Ci sentiamo quindi di consigliare Nepal Hiking a chiunque voglia visitare questa mag-nifica nazione.
