See the third highest mountain in the world up close, trek on Glaciers, enjoy spectacular forest of Rhododendron and the open and warm hospitality of the Sherpa, Limbu, Rai and Lhomi communities.
This is trekking off the beaten track and is located in  far eastern Nepal, on the border with Sikkim and the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area.
Kanchenjunga was one of the first areas of the Himalayas to be explored in the 19th century and yet it still remains largely free of tourist.
Trekking Adventures has decided to take a little longer with this trek to give those who dare to come and enjoy this amazing area the opportunity to trek to both Kanchenjunga Base Camp plus over Selele pass  and up the Simbuwa Khola /valley to Oktang where we have fantastic views of Kanchenjunga’s West Face and Gapur I, II, III and IV. The views are out of this world.
