Trekking in Eastern Nepal
Eastern Nepal is home to the popular routes to Makalu Base Camp Trekking and Kanchenjunga, as well as an eastern route to Everest. The area boasts a cultural diversity like nowhere else and prosperous villages. To go Eastern Nepal it takes either a bus journey or a flight to Tumlingtar, from where treks to the Makalu Barun National Park usually start, or Taplejung, for the Kanchenjunga treks.To be exact Kanchenjunga means "Five Great Treasuries of the Snow", but in reality it has seven main summits.Kanchenjunga which stands at an elevation of 8,585m the third peak mountain in the world is the residence of gods who impart affluence and benevolence on them and their lands, while to the climbers of this peak the saying "Five Great Treasuries of the Snow" takes on a somewhat more warning tone.
We start the journey to Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trekking with a flight from Kathmandu to Taplejung (Suketar). It takes you all the way through attention-grabbing Rai and Limbu villages and untouched forests to the magnificent South Face Base Camp at Ramche, before crossing the Mirgin La (pass) to the north side of Kanchenjunga and the Pang Pama Base Camp.
From Suketar the trek leads to Chauki through the villages of Mitlung, Ghunsa, Khambachen and Lhonak to Pangpema (5,140m) which is also the base camp for expeditions attempting the North Face of Kanchenjunga II and the peak of the first part of the trek.
