KANCHENJUNGA BASE CAMP TREKKING
‘an adventure to the foot of the world’s 3rd highest peaks visiting both base camps’
Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trekking is an exclusive adventure around Nepal's far north-eastern Himalayas, special for various reasons. The first is Mt. Kanchenjunga listed as the world’s 3rd highest peak as well as the 2nd tallest mountain in Nepal. The other fact is the only trek that takes you to both base camps in one single journey. Visiting south and north base camps of Mt. Kanchenjunga, after scenic walks through the enchanting forest to sheer mountain wilderness.
The next is Mt. Kanchenjunga, actually pronounced as the ‘Kanchendzonga’ a Tibetan origin name. Which means a mountain range with five precious jewels that relate to the group of adjoining peaks that make the Kanchenjunga massif. 
Mt. Kanchenjunga towers high at 8,586 m / 28, 169 feet, and straddles the border between Nepal and Sikkim (a small state of North East India). 
The first ascent of Mt. Kanchenjunga was on May 25th, 1955 by a British Expedition led by the late Sir George Band. The region of Kanchenjunga is least visited, due to its remote location, where few groups of trekkers often venture. But it is slowly drawing trekkers and mountaineers than it was before. The network of motorable roads has been constructed around the mid-hills. Making the trekking days much shorter than it was in the early days. Mt. Kanchenjunga base trek starts after a sweeping panoramic flight from Kathmandu to Bhadrapur airport around Far South East Nepal, sub-tropical lowland, then the journey heads to cooler hills towards the Taplejung district.
From Taplejung our adventure begins, after an exciting drive on a hilly rough road, the walk follows to lovely farm villages. The trek encounters, varied landscapes and vegetation heading towards cooler hills, crossing a few streams and bridges to reach Tseram. Located amid the South and North routes of Kanchenjunga base camps. The visit takes to South Base Camp close to Yarlung glaciers, the original route for the first conquest of Mt. Kanchenjunga.   
After exploring the Southern Base Camp of Mt. Kanchenjunga, on the trail towards the other Northern side of Kanchenjunga. The walk leads to traversing three smaller passes above 4,200 m high in a day. Crossing Mirgin-la, Sinion-La, and Sele-La Pass to Sele through beautiful rhododendrons and pine forest, then reaching Ghunsa, a lovely village. Inhabited by the highlanders Sherpa and Bhotias interwoven to strong Buddhist religion and culture.
Slowly the walk heads towards our last main destination Lhonak and Pang-Pema at Mt. Kanchenjunga North Base Camp. The highest point of the adventure also offers mind-blowing views of arctic snow and ice landscapes.
Standing beneath the towering North Face of Mt. Kanchenjunga with adjoining mountain range Mt. Jannu and Wedge peaks. Enjoy the time of your life with a wonderful experience, then on the return journey to the road head.
The trail leads downhill through nice farm villages of Ghunsa, and Sekathum to join the newly opened motorable road at Ranipul. Then our walk concludes taking a drive to lower cooler hills past Taplejung to lovely Ilam town. Famous and renowned for Tea-Gardens and products, the journey leads to the low warm flat land of the Terai belt.

Must Know Information
High Altitude Sickness
High altitude sickness is a condition that can occur when our body does not adapt well to having less atmospheric pressure and oxygen at high altitudes. It typically affects individuals who are not acclimatized to high altitudes and can be potentially dangerous if progresses to more severe forms without treatment. 
Causes of Altitude Sickness
Low atmospheric pressure: The decrease in atmospheric pressure is primarily due to the thinner air at high altitudes. Low atmospheric pressure at high altitudes has several effects on the human body and develops altitude illness. 
Less oxygen:  The primary factor in altitude sickness, oxygen pressure becomes thinner at higher altitudes. This leads to hypoxia, in this condition body tissues have inadequate oxygen.
Rapid ascent: Ascending to a high altitude rapidly does not give your body enough time to adjust to the changing altitude and the reduced oxygen levels.

There won’t be an electricity heating system in the mountain while doing trekking.

Drinking Water

Drinking water must be pure, safe and contamination-free. You can get bottled or purified drinking water during the trip even in the mountain which is very safe for you to drink. The majority of the people who make trekking or adventure trips in the mountains go with boiled water which is prepared by the local lodges/guesthouses on the trail which is the best way to keep you safe from contaminated water. However, some people carry water purifying ingredients and they apply it to the drinking water and they drink it. But, don’t try to drink the water from the Local River, stream and taps. The bottled water you can buy along the trek in the guesthouse.

Communication 

You can enjoy excellent facilities of communication in Kathmandu. However, in the case of the trekking trip in the mountains, you may not be able to have such kind of facility as in the cities. But, most of the local teahouses/lodges/guesthouses/ hotels on the trail will offer you the facility of  Wi-fi. Sometimes, you get it for free and sometimes, you may have to pay for the installation of Wi-fi during the trip in the mountains. 

The best way to access good communication over your smartphone is to get a local Nepali SIM Card like NT and NCELL. You get these local Nepali SIM Cards easily in Kathmandu and even in International Airport, Tribhuvan International Airport. For this, you have to present a copy of your passport and a passport-sized- photograph. You can buy a data pack via this local SIM Card and you make a very good communication.  You can make a call, and access the internet over it.
