Overview

For the people of Sikkim, Kanchenjunga is more than just the third highest peak in the world; it is believed to be the abode of the state’s patron deity. This trek takes one right up close to the big mountain, through forests of rhododendrons, orchids, pine and magnolia to the higher valleys and the rolling meadows used for grazing by the gentle yak-herding Lepchas.

In terms of sheer views, this is one of the greatest treks in the entire Himalaya.

*** The best times for this trek are mid-March through April into early May, then again from October into mid-November ***
