Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek is a chance to reach the base camp of the world’s third tallest mountain on a
remote mountain trail ideal for trekkers who enjoy the solitude. Located in the far north-eastern corner of
Nepal, Mt. Kanchenjunga is considered to be one of the most beautiful mountain massifs in the world.
The name Kanchenjunga means ‘Five Treasures of the Great Snow’ which is in reference to the five
summits that make up Kanchenjunga. The 24-day circuit trek begins after we fly to Suketar from
Kathmandu. The long journey on a less crowded path also rewards us with a unique insight into the rural
Nepalese lifestyle of the country’s eastern region.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements
The trip is categorized as difficult as we will be travelling in high altitude for a long duration and cross a
few Himalayan passes. Therefore, previous trekking experience, physical fitness and positive attitude are
essential. It is always best to start jogging and exercising regularly at least a few months before the
actual trek. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases are
required to consult their doctor before taking the trip. It is also advised that you inform us about any medical condition before booking the trek.
