The Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek offers a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the rich biodiversity of the region. From rare species of plants to elusive wildlife, every step of the journey is filled with awe-inspiring encounters. The trek also provides a glimpse into the vibrant culture and traditions of the local communities, making it a truly unforgettable adventure.

I did not like this trek there was lots of landslides that had swiped away entire part of the trail and the forest in the surroundings. The mountain scenery wasn't so great except when sawing Mount Jannu. And also the cost of this trek is really expensive compare to other region like EBC, and Annapurna which is not entirely justified in my opinion. I also heard that there is a road now build from Taplejung to Tibetan border, and know several days of the trail are made on road.

My trip to Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek was super wonderful. I'm planning a trip to Kanchenjunga word third highest planet and the second-highest mountain Himalayan country of Nepal side. Luckily, I visited this autumn and I thought, the weather and the mountain scenery are especially showing me. I really fell in love with the natural beauty of the Himalayas. once the time is not enough to explore pristine Mount Kanchenjunga.

I made this trek once in 2014 and it was very beautiful and rewarding. But I went back in 2022 and it has changed so much since the last time. The pollution on the lower tamor river is very present with a lot of trash along the trek like bottle of plastic etc. There is a huge hydropower plant since 2-3? years in construction and a lot of road building which has made the first days of the course awful. You can see bottle of plastic old tent until the south camp base it's really a shame!

A tough but rewarding trek. We started at Taplejung and walked to North Base Camp before heading over Selela to Cheram and up to South Base Camp. The huge drop down into Cheram was hard on the knees but we were glad we were descending not ascending.

You walk from Taplejung towards North Base Camp along a deep valley through attractive forest, alongside a white water river. For five days you only see glimpses of snow covered peaks until you reach Gunsa.

Most tea houses are ultra-basic, - think Annapurna thirty years ago. However, a few are surprisingly good, particularly in Gybla and Ghunsa. Most tea houses do not have a menu and serve little more than tasteless dal bhat or pasta with veg. Beds at many tea houses are hard as rocks. Some high altitude tea houses cook and heat with dried yak dung which makes life very aromatic.

Availability of beds in tea houses can be limited, particularly at Kambuchen and Lonak. I recommend sending a fast porter ahead each day to book the rooms you need. At Kambuchen go to the 'White House' or the new Lodge which is currently under construction (as of Nov 2019).

Spend two nights at attractive Gunsa and climb the nearby hill (400 meters) on your rest day. Spend two nights at Kambuchen and take the side trip up to Jannu.

The one day return walks from Lonak up to North Base Camp and from Cheram to South Base Camp are long hard days but totally worth it. If I were to do the trek again I would stay a night at Ramche which is wonderfully scenic. This would give time to fully enjoy the very attractive route between Ramche and Oktang South Base Camp.

We flew in and out of Badrapur. We could have saved two long days of expensive and scary road travel by flying in and out of the new airport at Taplejung.

Mobile phone reception using Ncel sims was non-existent more than one day out of Taplejung. Nepal Telecom (Namaste) sims were much better but are harder to get (I was told they are available only to Nepalese nationals). Some Nepalese will let you use their phones - I paid Rs100 (about $US1) per minute for calls to Australia.

Kanchenjunga is a trek for people who enjoyed/suffered Annapurna and Everest in years past. The grotty tea houses will evoke nostalgia. The huge uphill and downhill tracts will push you to your physical limits.

A very hard but rewarding trek would be the best way to describe this trek. We went in January, completely off season and very, very cold at night, as a group of 14. The route is hard, very much up and down throughout. Unlike Everest the facilities are under developed and can be basic. Worth every second of it for the views and challenge.

The trek is pretty tough but very rewarding.
We chose to trek from the south (Sukethar) to north (Taplethok) and were happy with the decision as we saw mountains every day on the approach.
The trek visits both south base camp - Oktang, and the north base camp - Pangpema, where the views of Kanchenjunga are splendid.

There are some lovely side trips including Yamatari Khola, from Ghunsa, Jannu viewpoint from Kanbachen, and Domo Ri from Pang Pema.
Thankfully there are still no crowds on this trek, so it was a very enjoyable experience .

In general the accommodation and food selection is limited and basic, with the most basic teahouse in Ramche, but the trek can be done as a teahouse trek, so we did not have to carry a tent. It is a must to have own sleeping bag, as most lodges do not provide any blankets.

With the road being slowly built, the approach can be shortened by starting from Hapu Khola and finishing in Taplethok, from where a local jeep transport goes to Taplejung.

A guide is mandatory, we were lucky with a great guide who was organized by an agency that pioneered this trek, Visit Himalaya Trek, and all went flawlessly due to their perfect organization skills.

Kanchenjunga trek is one of the treks known as an off the beaten trekking trail in the far eastern part of Nepal. which gives you an opportunity to explore the true reality of local vulture and green vegetation as well as the white snowcapped mountain. The duration of the trek would be the 17/26 days depending upon how long you wanna stay inside in it.
Thanks
