Kanchanjangha (8586 M) is the third highest mountain in the world after K2 and Mt. Everest. It was assumed to be the highest mountain in the world until 1852. Mt. Kanchanjangha was first climbed on 25th May 1995 though it was officially opened for trekkers from 1988. Kanchanjangha massif is the part of great Himalayan trails that includes the five great Himalayas know as “five treasures of the snow”. The great Himalayas of Kanchanjangha massif are Kanchanjangha Main (8586M), Kanchanjangha West (8505M), Kanchanjangha Central (8482M), Kanchanjangha South (8494M) and Kangbachen (7903M). As one of the world’s fourteen eight-thousanders, trekking in the Kanchanjangha Himalayan region is strenuous trekking in Nepal. Thus Kanchanjangha trekking is suitable for well experienced trekkers who wish to experience the satisfying and wild experience of walking in the remote and not formed tracks in the Himalayas of Nepal. In comparison to Annapurna and Everest trekking trails, Kanchanjangha trekking is less explored and possible to walk blissfully whole day with no other trekkers. Kanchanjangha trekking covers the whole area of Kanchanjangha Conservation Area that was established in 1997 and covers the area of 2035sq. km. The landscape of the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area comprises cultivated lands, forests, pastures, rivers, high altitude lakes and glaciers. Various fauna found in the area are snow-leopard, spectacled bear, red panda, golden-breasted fulvethta, snow cock, blood pheasant and red-billed chough.
Trekking in Kachanjangha nowadays can be shifted from traditional camping trek to comfortable tea house trek in the months of September to November and March to May. Some lodges in high altitude may be closed during the end and start of the season. These guest houses serve from typical Nepali food to varieties of continental dishes. Tongba is warm millet beer served in brass-decorated wooden pots with a straw is the best local drink to try after a long day hiking. All guesthouses are wooden houses with basic facilities and sharing bathroom. Kanchanjangha trekking starts either from Basantapur or Suketar and ends at the same place where you start.
