    I was surprised the trek being only 18 days provided exactly the same views and added more from the normally 20+ trek Packages from other travel agencies. This was not my first time visiting Kanchenjunga and will definitely not be the last. The 18 day was a try out for a quick get around the circuit as I wanted to experience the mountain pass and Himalayas again. I would never have thought that I would love this trip more than the one I had previously. Anyone having a short time for a trek in Nepal surely should prefer this package for it takes you everywhere around the circuit available. The walk around glaciers was fun. This is definitely one of the best trips you can have in Nepal. I highly recommend NTA for easy permits and professional guides for the trek.

With only some trek experience I was worried to go for the trek but from the NTA team and the guides encouragement, I could go for it. I loved every moment of it.

    My trip to the Kanchenjunga Circuit was simply awesome. The snow-capped mountains throughout the trek and getting to see the snow-leopard just added to the excitement.

Food while Kanchenjunga Circuit Trekking

In the trekking part, we include three meals (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner) a day in tea house/lodges that you can choose from the teahouse/restaurant menu but if you are on the big group at that time your guide/team leader will choose the food for you. Meals are generally available in Nepalese and continental cuisines on different tastes in everyplace but you have to eat the meals in the same tea house where you are going to staying at night but if you are staying in tented camp (Camping) then our cook prepares food and provides to you.

Acclimatization for Kanchenjunga Circuit Trekking

AMS (acute mountain sickness) is a serious issue. It is the consequence of the breakdown of the body to adapt to high altitudes and can affect anyone, regardless of age or fitness. It usually occurs above 1,800 meters and the likelihood of being affected increases as you ascend. The way to decrease the effects of altitude is to ascend slowly, 300 meters per day above 3,000 meters until you have acclimatized. Poor acclimatization results in headache, nausea, sleeplessness, difficulty breathing and swelling of fingers and glands. The only cure for AMS is to descend to a lower altitude and your guide’s decision on this matter is final. When you are planning to trek above 3,000 meters we recommend not walks faster. If you will get altitude sickness please consult with your guide to go down at least 500 meters to recover.

How do you deal with an emergency?

Trekking on high Himalayan altitudes is always a satisfying experience. However, you must keep your safety in mind. Emergencies, like illness, AMS, storms, missteps, landslides, and even avalanches, are rare but can happen anytime during the trekking, so be prepared for any random goof-ups. To deal with any emergencies your guides, who are expert mountaineers will be there for your rescue. Your tour guide will always carry a first aid kit to deal with any medical emergencies. In the case of some rescue operations, extra charges will be borne by the trekkers.
Is it safe to drink water in Kanchenjunga?
No. You cannot drink the water from the tap or streams in Kanchenjunga. Mineral water is not available on the trail. If available, it is expensive to buy (perhaps 10 times more than in Kathmandu). You can use a water purifier or SteriPen.

What is the condition of the teahouse in Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek?

Most of the tea houses are the basic standard. Don’t expect luxury in this trek. Wi-Fi is in limited tea houses. You have to use a bucket shower. Make you can use the Squat toilet.
