The Kanchenjunga North Base Camp trek offers views of sensational snow-capped mountain peaks plus a landscape of subtropical lowlands, rhododendron and alpine forests and spectacular glaciers. Being a strenuous trek it is recommended it should be undertaken with those with some trekking experience and a good level of fitness. The north face base camp itself is situated at Pangpema (5,100) which is reached by a high track following the moraine of the Kanchenjunga Glacier. Located above the glacier, the base camp offers stunning views of the north face of Kanchenjunga and Yalung Kang, sometimes know as Kanchenjunga West (8,505m). An extra day is spent here to regain stamina for the return trip and take in the glorious views of Mount Kanchenjunga, Janu Himal and other Himalayan peaks.
It is interesting to note that Mount Kanchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world at 8,586m, and until 1849 it was thought it was the highest, but it now lies just behind Mount Everest (8,848m) and K2 (8,611m). Protected by the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area, and the Sacred Himalayan Landscape initiative of the World Wild Life Fund (WWF), there is an abundant variety of wildlife including the elusive snow leopard, the Asian black bear, and red panda, to name just some of the more rare mammals. Bird lovers may get the chance to see the golden-breasted fulvetta, snow cock and blood pheasant among others. Situated in the far eastern corner of Nepal, and bordering Sikkim in India, and Tibet, the Tibetan Buddhist villages, monasteries and prayer flags adds real flavour to the trek
