Overview

Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek takes you on a journey to the ultimate wild side of Nepal. This trekking route is one of the least visited areas, one off the beaten track, yet to be explored. Explore the trails of Kanchenjunga with a base camp hike. Within the Kanchenjunga Conservation area that covers a vast area of 2035 square kilometers wide land, you will find yourself amidst unmatched natural beauty on the backdrop of the wonderful Himalayas.

The Kanchenjunga trekking takes you away from the mainstream trekking route and hordes of tourists. You will travel in complete isolation in most of the parts. The trekking route has no disturbances and interference of modern shenanigans. Hence, you can enjoy the pureness of natural beauty.

Mt. Kanchenjunga stands over 8585m, making it the world’s third-highest peak. It is in the beautiful terrain tugged in the eastern region of Nepal spread over the border with Sikkim. It is a massive figure of five different tips that pierce the sky. The locals derive the name Kanchenjunga that means Five Treasures of Snow. Locals believe that the five different mountains are a manifestation of Gold, Silver, Grain, Stone, and Holy Scripture. Locals worship the mountains as the lineage of the gods. The resemblance of the blessings to humankind is in terms of culture and religion.

Kanchenjunga Trekking- A Journey of Self-Discovery

You will travel to the far-eastern Himalayan part of Nepal with the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Hike. The place has its own diverse cultured social values. The luxury of modern amenities is nearly nonexistent. The Base Camp Kanchenjunga Trek also tests your limits and sharpening your moral and mental abilities to grow the feeling of instant gratitude for everything you have, people you care about, and all that exists within you.

On top of that, the Kanchenjunga Base Camp trek is a journey of self-discovery. Hiking through the thick forest, into deep valleys with wild rivers and waterfalls raging through the veins and gorges is like meditation. We highly recommend it to the peace seekers and less visited places. Trekkers still consider the Kanchenjunga hike the best destination for exploratory trekking in the world. Most of everything you see during the trekking is probably a new finding for the world. Besides that, it offers the best off the beaten route for adrenaline to test their limits.

The route through Arun valley is most recommended where you can observe the pure natural beauty. If lucky, you can have sights of rare and elusive animals like snow leopard and red pandas.

The trekking to Kanchenjunga base camp begins from Suketar of Taplejung. Besides, you will need to get a special trekking permit from a government registered trekking company in Nepal to enter the Kanchenjunga. Needless to worry, Heaven Himalaya is there to facilitate all your needs. Our guides and porters are from the area and know everything in the trekking route. So, get a month-long holiday to the unseen Himalayas, far from chaos in the Kanchenjunga with the 24 day’s trek to Kangchenjunga Base Camp.

Trip of a lifetime- Annapurna Circuit Trek

Heaven Himalaya Team offers a magnificently arranged trekking involvement in Nepal. Ramhari answered instantly to all my messages. They make a solid effort to make your vacation in Nepal an extraordinary one and genuinely went well beyond my desires.

I couldn't remember the name of the guide but my boy, you were more than amazing. I wish you good luck in the days to come.

Everything from pickup to trekking in the mountains was very professional with excellent service.

So, I strongly suggest everyone and will trek with Heaven Himalaya again in the future.

Glorious Experience in EBC Trek

We did an EBC trek with Ram and his team back in April 2019, and it was a glorious experience. Ram is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, and very helpful guide. 2 of us got unwell during the trek, and he was very prompt and took care of us in any way that was available.

We enjoyed our chat and his sense of humor along the trail and at the teahouses. He even got us a special breakfast and pickle salad at Namche Bazaar and always fulfilled the strange request with our dietary needs. EBC trek is amazing. With Ram, it is even more spectacular. Thanks for the amazing trip. Looking forward to island peak climb in the future.

Incredible Scenery and Service

I trekked up to Basecamp with Ram and his Heaven Himalaya team last year and had incredible Scenery and Service. The scenery is just awesome, and Ram took amazing care of everyone in our group. He kept us all entertained and motivated and most importantly, healthy. Can't recommend him highly enough!

Best Experience Ever, Thank You Ram

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in the mountains. We made the Three Passes Trek in the Everest region. I can certainly say that it was the ultimate outdoor experience we have ever had, simply astonishing. I'm also very sure that a great part of enjoying that experience the way we did was thanks to our guide (Ram). He's a highly expert in the mountains and more importantly a great person with a big heart and always a smile to offer.

Everest Base Camp Trekking

I did the Everest Base Camp Trek back in Nov’18 and it was an awesome experience. My guide, Ram was fantastic, very knowledgeable, and professional. He was very good in all the preparations that he made and was very attentive to my needs. He was very thorough explaining all parts of the trek and he took good care of me, especially I was exhausted on the last day of the trek, he pushed and helped me out to ensure I made it to EBC. I highly recommend going with Ram if you ever wanted to do any treks in Nepal.
