Kanchanjunga North Base Camp Trek
Mount Everest in Nepal and the K2 on the border of Pakistan and China are the only two mountains in the world that are higher than the Kanchenjunga. Kanchenjunga is 8586 meters high, located in eastern Nepal and extends to the province called Sikkim in India. Until 1955 this mountain had never been climbed before. Many climbers stop in today's day just below the summit out of respect for the people of Sikkim. They regard the summit as a saint.
It is a single travel distance from the capital Kathmandu, but the public transport or domestic flight can reach the east in a maximum of two travel days. The permit restrictions mean that the area can only be reached under the supervision of a guide. This and the location makes it not a busy area. This gives you an indescribable image of mainly Limbu and Tibetan people and their way of life. Nature is completely different than around the Annapurna or Everest area.
