A challenging trekking holiday in the remote Kanchenjunga region of the Nepal Himalaya. Traversing the remote and rarely-visited north-eastern corner of Nepal, our trekking route to Kanchenjunga leads through picturesque farmland and rugged valleys to the base camp for the south side of the Kanchenjunga massif at Ramze. Walking to the north side of Kanchenjunga by way of the Mirgin La (4663m), we are greeted with magical views of the Himalaya including Makalu, Chamlang, Everest and Kanchenjunga. Trekking beyond the attractive 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 Nepal side Kanchenjunga base camp at Pang Pema (5100m). Here at last, the formidable north face of Kanchenjunga is revealed. Our trekking efforts are rewarded with magnificent close up views of Kanchenjunga towering above the glacier opposite our camp in icy blue splendor. Varied and sustained, this popular trek is rated amongst the most beautiful walks in the world.
