Kanchenjunga (28198? & treasures of the snow) is the third height mountain in the world and was first climb by the British in 1956. Lying on the Nepal ? Sikkim borders, the lush landscape of the Kanchenjunga area is an ideal environment for musk beer, blue sheep and the infamous yeti. Few westerners have traveled to this remote area.
Traversing the remote and rarely-visited north eastern corner of Nepal, your trek takes you through picturesque farmland and rugged alpine valleys to Ramze (4360m./14300ft.), the basecamp for the south side of the massif.
You then cross to the north side of the mountain by way of the Mirgin La (4663m./15295ft.), with views of Makalu, Chamlang, Everest and Kangchenjunga. Beyond the Tibetan settlement of Ghunsa, with its sturdy wooden houses, numerous prayer flags and smiling villagers, we skirt the incredible northern flanks of Jannu on the approach to the north side basecamp at Pang Pema (5100m./16730ft.). Here we camp in full view of the formidable north face of Kangchenjunga, which towers above the glacier opposite our camp in icy blue magnificence. This long, varied and sustained trek is regarded as one of the most beautiful walks in the world.
