The Kanchenjunga Trek was started by the British mountaineer Pete Boardman who was known as the strong contender for walk in the world in 1979. By having the elevation of 8586 m, Kanchenjunga has been able to keep its position at 3rd in whole world. 

The word Kanchenjunga was originated from old Tibetan and translated to five treasures of snow i.e. Gold, Silver, Precious Stones, Grain, and Holy Scripture. Local citizens are worshipping these holy mountains from their ancestor generation. Kanchenjunga is located in the eastern side of Nepal bordering with Sikkim, a tiny Himalayan state in the north eastern part of India. There are some restricted areas in route to reach the camp so permits are compulsory required in order to complete the trek. The government of tourism in Nepal doesn’t allow for solo hiking and local guides must be employed to obtain permits. A trek to Kanchenjunga is an unforgettable adventure into the heart of the Himalaya where the scale of both mountain and valley is difficult to comprehend. On the way of trekking you will meet local Tibetan refugees, who welcome you with hospitality. The Rhododendron national flower of Nepal, their farmland males your face smiling with excitement and joy.

Before going on Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek the participants should be physically fit enough to walk for at least 6 hours per day. However, today government has made lodge and night stay facility which makes you easier in the trip.
