Kanchenjunga trek is a challenging and rewarding adventure that takes you to the base camps of the third highest mountain in the world, Mount Kanchenjunga. The trek offers stunning views of the Himalayan peaks, diverse landscapes, rich culture, and wildlife. You can choose from different itineraries and durations depending on your preference and budget. The best time to do this trek is between late April to May, and September to November. During these months, the weather is relatively stable and the views of the mountain are clear. The trek is also less crowded, as most trekkers visit during the peak months of June and July when the monsoon season makes the trek difficult and unpredictable. In April and May, the rhododendrons are in full bloom and the trek is surrounded by beautiful flowers.

The temperatures are also mild, making the trek more pleasant. September to November is also a great time to go, as the monsoon season has ended and the skies are clear again. The temperatures are slightly cooler, and the fall colors of the trees add to the beauty of the trek. The difficulty level of this trek is challenging due to its high altitude and rugged terrain. The trek starts at an elevation of 1,500 meters and goes up to an altitude of 5,243 meters at the base camp of Kanchenjunga. On average, you will gain an altitude of 500 meters to 700 meters per day. You will also be walking through tough and steep terrain, with extended lengths of descends and ascends, river crossings, and winding pathways. You will also spend many hours a day trekking in remote and isolated places.

Some of the highlights of the trek are:

Exploring the remote and unspoiled regions of Eastern Nepal

Crossing high passes like Mirgin La and Sele Le.

Visiting both North and South Base Camps of Kanchenjunga.

Encountering rare and endangered animals like snow leopards, red pandas, and musk deer.
