Basantapur Kanchenjunga Trek
Basantapur Kanchenjunga trek is a very wild, rather unknown trek that explores remote valleys near the border of China and India. It leads you to the north and south base camps of Kangchenjunga. Basantapur Kanchenjunga Trek is an interesting Mediocre Pass Trekking in Nepal.
During this trek, you are sure to visit much-uncrowded areas and cross typical Tibetan villages. Which carries you a long time before at the beginning of the previous century.
Trip Overview Kanchenjunga- About this unusual trek, we chose to do the complete routes, the north, and the south ones. Beginning from Basantapur and finishing at Tapeljung after having gone up to Pangpema, the north Kangchenjunga BC, and Oktang BC at the foot of the huge Kanchenjunga south base camp face of this giant. This (8,586m) peak is the second-highest one in Nepal after Everest (8,848,86 Meters) and the third one in the world after the K2 (8,611m) (Pakistan)
The Bashantapur Kanchenjunga trek isn’t difficult, because some tracks are not very much used. The weather can be a little bit rainy or snowy in high areas. When you are at altitude you are rather isolated and remote.
So in brief, the Bashantapur Kanchenjunga trek area is not like a standard trek like Annapurna, Everest, and Langtang trek. But be sure to do something unusual and wild, far away from the crowded routes.
Kangchenjunga in Nepali means “five snow treasures” with reference to the five summits of more than (8,000m). South, central, north, Yalung Khang, which compose this huge barrier on the Sikkim border.
