Kanchenjungha Trek... Exploring the valleys of Eastern Nepal. Now we plan to trek in one of the most remote and beautiful areas in Nepal which still lies surrounded in mystery. The area is abundant with wildlife, as inhabitation consists of only scattered villages. There are musk deer, blue sheep and, for the believer, the Yeti! Magnificent views of Everest, Makalu and Kanchanjunga massif will make the trip worth your while.

Kanchenjunga (8,585m) is the third highest mountain in the world. "Kang-chen-zod-nga", meaning "Five Great Treasuries Of The Snow", actually, has seven major summits and the avalanches that Kanchenjunga throws down are said to be the largest anywhere else in the world! Your journey to this remote area passes through the same route, that was once the Base Camp for expeditions attempting the North Face of Kanchenjunga and the culmination of the first part of the trek.

Prayer Flags - What you see very often while trekking in Himalaya

While you trek in Nepal, in most of the places you see the strips of coloured cloth printed with Buddhist sutras are strung up at the top of passes and streams and houses. The colours are highly symbolic - red, green, yellow, blue and white represent the elements of fire, wood, earth water and iron. These are believed to purify the air and pacify the gods. Beautiful, multi-hued prayer flags line every hilltop, rock wall and trailside singing prayers to the gods with every breeze and every passing traveler.

Climbing the smaller peaks

If you trek in Nepal, lets say in most of the places you'll have an option or more to the extension of your plan to climb lesser known peaks designated as "Trekking Peaks".
