Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek 2021 is a trekking journey full of fun, adventure, wilderness, isolation, mountains, and natural glory. Far away from the capital city of Kathmandu, in the far east section of Nepal, bordering to the Indian state known as Sikkim lies the world’s third-highest peak, Mt. Kanchenjunga that rises tall eloquently at an elevation of 8586 meters. It takes you through the wild, isolated and diverse sections of Nepal that is still a restricted trekking area and offers a wide range of scenery that transforms from lush tropical forests, alpine forests, pastures to the high altitudinal glaciated area at the base camp of the mountains.
