What do the treks cover in the Kanchenjunga Region?

Kanchenjunga region lies in eastern Nepal. Mount Kanchenjunga stands at 8586 m and is the world’s third highest mountain in the world. The name Kanchenjunga in Tibetan means the ‘Five Treasures of the Great Snow’ and refers to five summits that make up the Kanchenjunga massif. It encompasses 16 other peaks over 7,000m spreading from north east Nepal into Sikkim in India. In 1997, the region surrounding this mountain range was turned into Conservation area which extends into protected areas in Sikkim and Tibet forming a beautiful, unspoilt wilderness.

Choosing to trek in the Kanchenjunga region

This region has been settlements of Limbus and Sherpas with their unique and beautiful culture for many centuries. It is home to many significant plants such as rhododendrons and orchids, and to many mammals, some highly endagred. Abundant rainfall during monsoon season has made this region rich in biodiversity with thousands of flowering plants and more yet to be discovered. The mountain holds an important place in the mythology and religious ritual of the local people and its slopes were no doubt familiar to herdsmen and traders for centuries before a rough survey of it was made.
