What to Expect
Eastern Nepal is wonderfully known by its greater diversity on many accounts; ethnic groups such as the Rai, Limbu & Magar communities, a fertile range of flora due to the higher summer rainfall in the region, and some of the most breath-stopping mountain vistas anywhere in the Himalaya. By following the glacial torrent of the Tamur and Ghunsa Rivers to their source on the North West side of the Kanchenjunga Himal, we enter into a lesser known world where the beauty of the landscapes is downright rugged…but simply beautiful…& breathtakingly awesome.
Dwarfed by an alpine opulence in almost every direction, peaks such as Pyramid Peak, Jannu, the Twins and of course Kanchenjunga (8586m) dominate the regal skylines of this region. It is no less dramatic on our southern traverse of the mountain on the return journey by way of the Mirgin La Pass at (4500m). This is a challenging traverse through a region seldom frequented in recent years…this adds up to the uniqueness of this area…where its just ‘us & the mountains & everything else it has to offer.

This trek approaches the North Face Base Camp of the world's third highest peak, Kanchenjunga (8598m) which lies in the eastern frontier of Nepal. Mt. Kanchenjunga, one of the world's most challenging peaks to climb, geographically lies on the Nepal-Sikkim (India) border. The trek gets into gear right after arriving in Taplejung and goes through captivating green, crop growing villages and immaculate forests to the awe-inspiring North Face Base Camp at Pangpema (5065m), before crossing to Oktang – 4370m) the South Base Camp of Kanchenjunga via 3 PASSES OF SINION LA (4440m), MIRGIN LA (4480m) and SINELAPCHE BHANJYANG (4646m).
