Trip Overview:

Kanchenjunga area was opened recently in 1988 to trekkers. The immigration office will issue trekking permits for the Kanchenjunga region only to groups and not to individual trekkers. Kanchenjunga, at 8,586m, is the third highest mountain and has several distinct summits. A British team led by Charles Evans made the first ascent of Kanchenjunga in 1953. They climbed from the south of Nepal and climbed the south face of the peak. It is on the border of Nepal and the Indian state of Sikkim.

Introduction

You can trek either to the north or south Kanchenjunga base camp but you need lot of determination, luck and lot of time to visit both sides of the peak. You can fly to Taplejung or Tumlingtar from Kathmandu where there are STOL airstrips. There is no inhabitant in the upper part of the mountains and trekkers need to be self sufficient.

Activities: Trekking and Hiking

Meals: Breakfast in Kathmandu and all meals during the trek

Transportation: Domestic flight and private vehicles

  • Private trek or group option

We can organise this trek on a private basis for groups of friends, families, clubs, charities or any other group.

Costs for this option are available on demand but are often not a huge amount greater than joining one of our ‘fixed departures’. Please contact us with your referred dates and itinerary and we’ll give you a quote.

  • Additional Information

Trekkers need to provide their own personal clothing and equipment. It is recommended that you use tried and tested kit on the trip rather than relying on brand new kit you’re not sure of.

A complete kit list is to be found on this website.

  • Porter Protection


Climb High is a local Nepali company and as such we treat our own people with the respect and good conditions you would expect. Many team members are from our own families and you can be assured that the treatment they receive is second to none. All insurances and porter conditions are met, and more.

Travel in Nepal can be dangerous, delayed and highly changeable. Weather conditions, availability of porters and the health of team members can all contribute to changes.
