Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek

We offering you one of the best treks in the Indian Himalayas for spring 2022. This is the perfect trek for people who love uncrowded paths and stunning views of the Himalayas.

The Kanchenjunga Base Camp trek is considered to be one of the best treks in India. Offering some of the challenging yet delightful trails, this trek is undertaken by trekkers from different parts of the world. While for the non-adventurers this trek might sound difficult and strenuous, for the thrill mongers it is a dream come true. Geographically, Kanchenjunga and other surrounding five massive peaks are together forming the third highest peaks in the world.

They are in the mighty Himalayas located in the small beautiful state of India, Sikkim. Kanchenjunga stands at an elevation of about 8586 meters, this trek runs from the western side of Sikkim, and east of Nepal.

There is a regular trekking route to Kanchenjunga it is also called Gochlea pass trek, many people only trek from Yuksum which is a faster route through the alpine forest. According to Namaste Nomad co-founder, Yuksum to Gochlea is good to trek but for an amateur, it’s a bit risky because it gains altitude very fast from the second day. He prefers the hidden valley trek which starts from Uttrey village near the Nepal border and takes you through the India Nepal borderline, in this route you will also able to see Everest, Makalu, Lothse, Nuptse including Kanchenjunga.

In this route, trekking was not allowed here for a long time but now it’s fully open for trekkers, you can find hidden treasures like lakes, dense forests, tribal villages, landscapes, and rich flora and fauna.  Until 1849, Kanchenjunga was considered to be the highest peak in the world before the discovery of Everest and K2. The verdant meadows, quaint villages, gleaming mountains, secluded regions, snow-clad summits, gushing rivers, and lakes are the prominent attractions lying on the way to the base camp. These are the simple reasons for trekkers to choose this strenuous trek to rejuvenate themselves. This trek is not busy and commercial like other treks in the Himalayas. it is still authentic and real.

Total 12 days trekking trail to Kanchenjunga Base Camp is quite different when we compare it with the other treks in the Indian Himalayas. Very unique and traditional nomadic style trek. Everything is carried by horse, yak, and porters, no sleeping in tea houses like Everest, no crowded huts or bars. We have a kitchen tent, dining tent, lots of fresh food, our own kitchen crew with great food menus every day. Personal tents single or doubles, mattress and all other equipment will be provided.  Before we reach each camp all your tent and food are ready by our crew every day. You only carry your day bag with water, some rain gears, that’s all. This is very flexible as we have the choice to camp wherever we like depends on how we are feeling.

On the first day, Trek starts with a gradient walk through a small settlement village. After that it becomes steep and we enter into a dense forest. As we climb up you can see Rhododendron trees and other alpine trees which make the walk so beautiful, April and May month is the best time to explore this area. You can see Rhododendron flowers blooming in the trees and it looks spectacular. walk today will be up to 5hours, slow-paced. Today our stop will be at Chewabhanjyang Pass (3142 m) this the border between Nepal and India, after reaching to camp we can actually to Nepal and have Nepali tea and come for dinner in India. Enjoy the evening here.

Day 5 -: Phokteydara rest day

We spend this day as a rest day to give your body needful time to acclimatize to this high altitude before we move further. But that doesn’t mean that we should do nothing. We can go for an acclimatization walk to a nearby hill called Phokteydara from where you can see the beautiful panoramic view of the greater Himalayas. One of the few places on Earth from where you can see four of the five highest mountains in the World. That’s also the main reason I prefer this route compare to Yuksum. When the weather is clear here your day will be like heaven Overnight stay in a tent.

Day 7 – Chewabhanjyang to Dhor (3749 m)

It will be a beautiful walk today. Don’t forget to have breakfast and pack your day bag accordingly, and ask lunchtime to your guide, today you will be reaching up to (3749 m). The most exciting thing about today’s walk is that sometimes you walk in Nepal and sometimes in India. Yes, this trail is just on the Indo-Nepal border. This zigzag walk along with a beautiful mountain view makes this walk one of the stunning high Himalayas trek. Lots of meeting and across Yak-herder huts today which is only evidence of human civilization in this region. Beautiful birds in the Rhododendron forests singing away. After the great hike, you will be at your camp already set up by your trekking team, have a cup of tea and popcorn before they offer you fresh cooked yummy dinner at the dining tent. yes, they do have all you need. Overnight stay in tent.

Day 8 – Pharey Megu (3905 m)

Today you trek to Pharey Megu (3905 m) this is my favorite day of the hike, not much to climb just follow the ridge, and the view of Greater Himalayan peaks is a prime attraction today. 3rd highest Kanchenjunga, Kabru, Talung peaks will dominate the view. apart from mountains, you may be lucky today to see rare Himalayan blue sheep today. It will be around 6 hrs trek to reach our Pharey Megu campsite. And again relax and check your photos and write your day experience and have a bit of banter with your trekking crew and rest.

Day 9 – Lampokhri (4297 m), 6 hrs

Today will be a little bit less oxygen for you, and the walk will be much slower but the distance is not much. The first one hour will be an easy walk. As there is almost no vegetation you can get an uninterrupted view, but prepare the suncream and hats and plenty of water, maybe up to 3 liters today. Today you cross some difficult patches that might be loose scree in some patches. After crossing this area you will reach a beautiful valley from where you can see Himalayan peaks Kabru, Pandim, etc. From here your campsite Lampokhri (4297 m) is just 2 hrs walk. In the afternoon ask your guide permission for a short walk and experience the sunset. Your colder nights are started and you will be getting less oxygen and closer at nights. Your trekking crew will look after you well with hot water bags, warm sleeping bags, boil water and you will have pleasant sleep. Good sleep and good food, enough water are very important at high altitudes.

Day 10 – Gomathang

It will be an exciting day as you go from Pharey Megu to Lampokhri. Today will be a little bit less oxygen for you, and the walk will be much slower but the distance is not much. The first one hour will be an easy walk. As there is almost no vegetation you can get an uninterrupted view, but prepare the suncream and hats and plenty of water, maybe up to 3 liters today. Today you cross some difficult patches that might be loose scree in some patches. After crossing this area you will reach a beautiful valley from where you can see Himalayan peaks Kabru, Pandim, etc. From here your campsite Lampokhri (4297 m) is just 2 hrs walk. In the afternoon ask your guide permission for a short walk and experience the sunset. Your colder nights are started and you will be getting less oxygen and closer at nights. Your trekking crew will look after you well with hot water bags, warm sleeping bags, boil water and you will have pleasant sleep. Good sleep and good food, enough water are very important at high altitudes.

Day 11 -Pangding (4268 m), 5 hrs

As every day your trekking crew will come in the morning with hot tea and hot water for your morning wash. have a good breakfast and enjoy your morning at Gomathang. a little bit of meditation beside the river would make more joy in your heart, that’s what I do. after your morning around 9 am trek start with a meadow walk then you enter Rhododendron and silver fir forest. It will be an easy walk today before you reach Pangding camp (4268 m) where we take a steep trail to reach our campsite. This campsite also offers an amazing view of the big Himalayan mountains.

Day 12 -Dzongri (4170 m)

Today’s trek starts with a descent. You walk down for about an hour and then climb up again. We cross two rivers Tikep Chhu and Rathong Chhu on our way to Dzongri. Dzongri is more like a junction point where various trails go in a different direction, some trekkers only trek up to Dzongri and return after viewing of Kanchenjunga. That is why Dzongri is always a busy campsite, but there is not a busy area you can choose to camp. In the afternoon go for an excursion to Dzongri Top for a stunning view, you can also hike around yak headers camp. Overnight stay in tent.

Day 13 – Thankgsing (3858 m), via Kokchurong.

We start in the dark to reach the Dzongri top to experience spectacular sunrise over Kanchenjunga and other peaks, golden colors mountain you have never seen before, this is your opportunity. It will take around 1 hour to reach the top. Experiencing this beauty you will return to the campsite and after breakfast, you start for Kokchurong, a riverside camp lunch. It will be a lovely walk today as the view of Kanchenjunga, Pandim and other Himalayan peaks will be with you all the time. It will be around 6 hrs to reach your Thangsing campsite. At the height of 3858 m. Thangsing is a greenfield campsite looking towards Kanchenjunga and just above white peak mt. Pandim, a beautiful place to explore. With Prek chu (River) is flowing just beside the campsite, its gurgling sound is so amazing and you can spend your hours just watching at the flowing river. Overnight stay in the tent, hopefully, the sky will be clear so you can see stars very close.

 

Day 14 – Thangsing- Mt. Pandim base camp.

Today is a very relaxing day, as you will only walk about 2 hours to another camp called lamuney, it is also called Mt Pandim base camp. But we can use this day for visiting the glacier lake called Milky lake (dud Pokhari). after the day hike to the lake, we will walk a flat walk to Lamuney campsite. You enjoy every moment of this walk as the astounding view of the Kanchenjunga, Pandim, Tenzing Khang peaks will keep you enchanted all the time. It is one of the most beautiful campsites here and the sunset view over gigantic Pandim is spectacular from here. It will be a colder night, but your support team will keep you warm with hot water bottles.

Day 15 – Summit Day – 5000mtr

You have to start around 3 am today for Goecha La. This journey is something that you will cherish forever. Trek amidst dark night in freezing weather is so adventurous. It will take around 3.5 hrs to reach the Goecha La (4980-5000 m), its something similar we do in Everest base camp as well, from Lobuche to base camp and return, we start there at dark too. While standing at the Goecha La you can see the gigantic view of Mt. Kanchenjunga, the world’s third-highest peak at stone throwing distance. from Everest base camp it’s very hard to see Everest but here you will see nearly the whole Kanchenjunga standing in front of you. Mt. Pandim (6691 m) also looks so massive from here. On your way down to the camp, the view of Kabru and other peaks will make you speechless. After returning to the campsite we have our lunch and move towards Thansing (3865 m). It will take 1.5 hr to reach there. We spend the afternoon just reaching our legs, checking photos, eating warm meals. It will be great to sleep here with the sound of the river.

Day 16 – Tshokha (2957 m)

Today will be an easy downhill walk all the way to Tshokha 1200mtr decent in one day. On the way return when you look back at the mighty Kanchenjunga, you amaze to think about the Goecha La summit! We take the same trail up to Kokchurong but from here we will take another trail to reach Tshokha. The trail goes through dense Rhododendron forest. During spring this trail looks so beautiful. This will be your celebrating evening with teammates and crew. Overnight stay in tent.

Day 17 – Back to Pelling

Today is your last day hike after almost 2 full weeks of walking in the Himalayas, I am sure you will be delighted to back for a real hot shower and soft bed in a hotel room. We start in the morning for Yuksom it will take up to 5 hours walk, many people end their trek in Yuksom and get a jeep from here next day, but I suggest you drive 2 hours today to Pelling and get the best hotel for your well-deserved rest. It’s a day for teasing other trekkers going uphill and you are running down. Upon arrival at Yuksom your transport will be waiting for you with some refreshments and they will drive to spelling for the night and good sleep, you will get all your storage bags and extra clothes you left before trek…

Day 18 – Back to Capital

Early morning drive back to gangtok

I love traveling with Nameste Nomad! This is my fourth trip with Mohan and Nameste Nomad, the reasons I keep coming back are; 1. Affordable- they are half price of most guide companies! 2. Ecologically friendly- when trekking in Nepal we take boiled water over plastic bottles, He asks that people think of their impact as travelers, leaving only footsteps not trash. 3. Quality- from transport to hotels we stayed in high quality hotels and comfortable transportation. 4. Personal touch- the guides where fantastic in looking after all sorts of details and needs. Each trip I have learned new words to use in the countries I’ve been in. 5. Humane travel- Nameste Nomad asks you to participate in the local culture by trying and eating the locally. As in Nepal you will be asked eat Vegetarian since that is the local norm. 6. As a small organization I have had the privilege to travel with the owner, Mohan on multiple trips. 7. Local impact- since I have traveled multiple times with Nameste Nomad, I have had the privilege to see Mohan do charity work while trekking. We have fed small children as we hiked and have stayed at off the beaten path locations to provide a more equitable impact in the mountains of Nepal. One group raised money to aid a village women’s group. Two years later I visited to see the final work that the money did. 8.safety- All guides with Nameste Nomad have had training in first-aid. In Nepal most of his guides have mountain rescue skills from working on Mt. Everest. 9.Multi-National groups. As an American, it is refreshing to travel with persons from all over Europe and Australia. Each time I’ve been on a trip I have met new friends. 10. Experience-each trip has been filled with wonder and delights; from my co-travelers to the knowledge of the guides. I have nothing but great memories and new friends!

Epic trip to Everest Base Camp.

"

I took part in a trek to Annapurna Basecamp with Namaste Nomad in April 2019. I had trekked with Mohan and his team twice before- to Langtang Valley in Nepal in March 2018 and The Picos, in Northern Spain in June 2018. This was my third trip- so I wasn’t as anxious about what awaited me in Nepal! The route to Annapurna is very accessible, the walking was tough enough, I thought- a lot of steps, which are sore on the knees! We were well looked after my our guide, Mohan, and his Sherpa team, Dowa and Mingma, as well as the rest of the team. The food, as on all the trips I’ve been on, was really superb. I loved the rice, lentils, local vegetables and of course the ginger tea! The accommodation was basic but always clean and adequate. Reaching Annapurna Basecamp was the high point of the trip for me- I will never forget it! We were part of a small group, just four hikers. I was traveling with a friend. We had both been part of larger groups on our previous two trips.I think I would prefer to travel in a bigger group if/when I go on a trip like this again. It was a great experience and I recommend Namaste Nomad.

Annapurna Basecamp trip

"

My serious walking career began at the age of 60, when I trekked with Mohan of Namaste Nomad in Ladakh. Since then I have gone back to the Himalayas with him every year: Everest Base Camp, Langtang, Island Peak... Each year I've thought it was as high as I could go, and each year I've come away wanting more. This time I hoped to attain the summit of my ambitions - to climb a 6500 metre mountain, Mera Peak, at the age of 65. Mera, known as the highest trekking peak in the world, was hard. It was steep. It was exhausting. It was wonderful. With the help of Mohan's right-hand-man, Dawa, and Nerbu, a younger sherpa; in the company of three other incredibly supportive Irish trekkers; with the amazing aid of our porters; and with the help, in my case, of copious amounts of oxygen (!), I made it to the very top. Mohan and Dawa always believed in me and did everything in their power to get me to the top. I am immensely proud to have done this, and immensely grateful to Namaste Nomad for giving me the opportunity. Seize the day, people. You are capable of so much more than you think.

I couldn't recommend this trip enough, I highly recommend Mohan as a guide. Trip was so enjoyable. I can't wait to go on another . From scenery to accommodation , everything was top class.

Picos De Europa

"

I first heard of Mohan and Namaste Nomad 2 years ago and since then I have been on 3 amazing trips with them. The first one was in March 2018 when I went to Langtang in Nepal. My first time there I was excited but more than a little apprehensive. I needn’t have worried. Mohan and his team of sherpas were absolutely wonderful. Everything was taken care of, tickets, transfers, all accommodation, most meals, money exchange and advice on where and what to eat and drink. We had been told that it would be completely vegetarian and dairy free on the trek. I had no problem at all with the vegetarian part of it but thought the dairy free might be tough. It wasn’t at all. We ate the most delicious food all prepared by our sherpas using fresh mostly locally sourced ingredients. The dal boat was to die for. We were constantly reminded to drink water, use sunscreen, wear a hat etc. The scenery in langtang was spectacular, towering snow capped mountains and deep valleys with raging rivers. It was an area which had been badly hit by the recent earthquake and there were sad reminders of the damage which had been done. Overall a very good and memorable experience. June 2018 I headed off to the Picos in Spain with Mohan again. For anyone who might be reluctant to travel too far , but wants amazing scenery I would totally recommend the Picos. Somewhat similar to the Himalayas I thought, one area known as the gorge stood out for me anyway. It was breathtaking. We stayed in the most beautiful little villages, ate delicious food and drank lovely local wine. Just a little as we had to remember we were walking in the morning! In April of this year I went back again to Nepal this time to do Annapurna base camp ( usually just known as ABC). A totally different area but no less lovely. It had a lot of forest and was very fertile. As well as being our guide Mohan was a great source of information about the local people and their way of life. I never stopped asking questions!. Again great walking , lots of steps this time but we kept going and finally on Easter Sunday morning at around 8 local time we arrived into ABC. We were told that the morning was the time to see it at its best . The rising sun in such a blue sky , the snow capped Annapurna range all combined to made it such a highlight. It was so well worth it. I think the fact that I did 3 trips with mohan and his team in such a short space of time says it all and I’m certainly not finished yet. For anyone who wants a trek with a difference but at a good price I don’t think you could do much better.

My treks with Namaste Nomad

"

Incredible trip! My wife and I came from the states to join Mohan and a bunch of wonderful Irish people on an island peak expedition. This was our first exposure to trekking in Nepal and technical mountaineering in general. We are rock climbers and hikers, but we trained extra hard the few months before the trip to develop good fitness and strong legs for long walks uphill. We met Mohan briefly while visiting Ireland a year earlier and felt instantly that we could trust him. Mohan is extremely experienced with trekking in the Himalayas (18yrs I think). He has connections every step of the way from hotels in Kathmandu, to flights to lukla, and in even in tea houses all along the route. This allows him to offer his clients fantastic service at a great price. Nice accommodations and food the whole time - everything is included in the cost up front so the only thing we had to think about was water which we just treated with chlorine tabs. Mohan gives great guidance to help avoid getting sick either from altitude or food. He demands good hygiene from kitchen staff and always sends his Sherpas into the kitchen to help and make sure our food is clean. The whole experience felt like a private trip with friends and not commercially organized. And really that's what it is - no middle man. Mohan genuinely cares about his clients and you will quickly become his friend. He will do everything he can to keep you healthy and acclimatized so you can have the best shot possible at meeting your goal. You won't have to worry about being confused the whole time - he keeps you well informed and is always checking to make sure you are doing well. He even coordinates with a guy in Kathmandu so they can make changes for summit attempts based on weather. Because he did this, we ended up summiting a day earlier than planned which made all the difference - I think nearly everyone failed the day before and the day after us due to snowfall, but we had 5 out of 8 summit in our group thanks to Mohan's leadership. Also if you do island peak - he won't make you walk from base camp to Chukkung after a 12-15 hr summit push, we met several people who after making it back to base camp still had a few hours of walking to get to a lodge and we really felt for them. His Sherpa staff is awesome and Mohan ensures they are well taken care of in addition to the porters/yaks. These Sherpas have more than adequate experience and are some of the kindest people you will ever meet. They even threw me a birthday party with a homemade cake along the way. They are fun, happy, and incredibly humble - always working hard to support their families. They deserve a good tip when the trip is over. Whatever you're looking for in a trek/climb - Mohan is your man. He'll work with you to make it happen. He is a friend for life now and I seriously recommend his guide services. Namaste!

Experience of a lifetime!

"

I had the most amazing experience walking up to EBC and Kala Pattar with Namaste Nomad. Words cannot describe the views and euphoria. The trip couldn't have been any better from beginning to end. We were thoroughly spoilt and taken care of to the highest standards by Dawa our guide and Sudip his assistant. They were both very accommodating, flexible, helpful, polite, knowledgeable and fun to be around. Our porters were efficient and helped ease our pain! The team offered us excellent advice at all times. In preparation for our trip Ashim and his team briefed us at our hotel and answered all of our questions. I would not hesitate in recommending your highly professional team to any friend or family member (RJ from Southampton UK)

Everest base camp

"

I went to India and Ladakh with Namaste Nomad two years ago. I absolutely loved it, particularly the Himalayas. I therefore challenged myself to trek to Everest Base Camp with them. I did this last year and I can truthfully say that it was one of the most wonderful things I have ever done in my life. I am in my sixties, but the care and attention given me made everything not only manageable but immensely enjoyable. I've now signed up to climb Island Peak with Mohan and the team - my first serious Himalayan mountain. It's a prospect that fills me with a mixture of great excitement and a healthy dose of fear - but I know that I am in the safest of hands. Mohan and the team are watching you every step of the way. Safety is their number one priority, but they manage to make every trek great fun too. Bring it on!

Malachy D

Truly a high-point of my life

"

This was the second trip I booked with Namaste Nomad. The first was hiking to Everest Base Camp which was a phenomenal trip! I placed a deposit on Bhutan before I left Nepal due to the shear genuineness of Mohan. He is very thorough in ensuring a safe and successful trip. In Bhutan he was open to group needs and used this information to organize alternative to the original plans. The group I was with had great communication between so that we could make choices that benefitted all of us. If you are thinking of traveling abroad and you love realism in your travels this is the company to book with. You will get the chance to see everyday life in your travels vs sitting on a tour bus skipping the realities of life outside.
