Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek, Sikkim

A less well known and more challenging trek than the hike to Everest Base Camp, the trip to Kanchenjunga takes you through Sikkim, one of the remotest corners of India. Valleys of magnolia and orchid give way to meadows of grazing yak, herded by the incredibly hospitable Lepcha people who believe that Kanchenjunga is the home of a goddess and should not be summitted. Buddhist monasteries perch against impossibly high peaks as the mountain itself comes into view. It’s a fantastic alternative trek with some of the most spectacular views in the Himalaya.
