Kanchenjunga North Base Camp Trek

Kanchenjunga North Base Camp Trek is the finest option for a short Kanchenjunga trek. It provides breathtaking views of Mount Kanchenjunga (8,586m) and Yalung Kang (8,505m). Likewise, Mt Kanchenjunga, at 8,586 meters, is the world’s third-highest peak and Nepal’s second-highest peak. The Kanchenjunga Conservation Area is located in the Taplejung. In eastern Nepal, this is the most popular and picturesque hiking location. It will be the best for your Kanchenjunga Short Trek.

Trek to Ghunsa Village

This beautiful trek starts from Sekathum, Taplejung, after a 45-minute scenic flight from Kathmandu to Bhadrapur then drives to Kanyam and continues to Sekathum. After that, Your trekking continues to Amjilosa, Gapla, Folley, and Ghunsa Village. Then finally reach the Kanchenjunga North base camp of the 3rd highest mountain in the world. The trail is very nice walking through the jungle so big chance to see wildlife red pandas.

Beautiful views of the Waterfall and follow the Tamor Khola and Ghunsa Khola. Ghunsa is a very beautiful traditional BhoTiya village with a sturdy wooden house. Ghunsa village is a nice place to stay with friendly people and a Great Tea House. As well as good accommodations and delicious food in the Himalayas.

Side Trip from Khambachen

After the acclimatization day at Ghunsa, Our trek continues to Khambachen. It is a small and beautiful place to stay. If you have enough time, we highly recommend an extra day at here. You have two options for your side trip from Khambachen. Especially, the first option is to hike to Janu ViewPoint (Faktanglung) which is an amazing place to visit.

The second option is to hike to Nupchu Pokhari (Lake) following the yak trail through the Nupchu Khola Valley. Nupchu Lake is one of the most beautiful glacial lakes in the Kanchenjunga region. You can enjoy seeing the reflection of Kumbhakarna (Janu Himal) on the lakes (it depends on the weather). But, It is harder and more adventurous to hike uphill.

Hike to Pangpema (North Base Camp)

Finally, Your Kanchenjunga trek continues to Lonak, 4,792 meters above sea level. Then Hike to Pangpema (5,140m) first thing in the morning (Kanchenjunga north base camp). This is where your Kanchenjunga Trek’s final destination. If you have enough time, there is another option to visit/hike Dormo ri (Dormo Peak) for the great view but you have to a night in Pangpema. It makes your trek more enjoyable and adventurous.

You may take in breathtaking views of Mt Kanchenjunga and Yalung Kang’s north face, as well as a breathtaking vista of the Kanchenjunga Himalayan panorama, Kanchenjunga Glacier, glacier lakes, wildlife, and much more.

  1. We first had GB as our guide on a trip to Kanchenjunga Base camp in 2009, and have subsequently used him in 2010, 2012, and most recently in 2018. His English fluency and ability to get things done is amazing, and dealing with him through email is absolutely no problem. Our trips usually involve project work and being able to give him all the responsibility for logistics frees us up.
