It would be hard to be at the incredible mountain views from the inner sanctum high on the Kangchenjunga Glacier. Within this spectacular mountain amphitheater you are enclosed by ridge upon snow -capped ridge that lead to the crowning summit of Kangchenjunga – the third highest peak in the world. To reach these rarefied heights we take an exceptional trek through the remote region of eastern Nepal.

From Kathmandu we fly to Taplejung before heading up the tamer Valley with its terraced rice Paddies and thriving villages. We enter forests of rhododendron, conifer and oak, and Pass small Tibetan settlements to high alpine Pastures where yaks graze to the margins of the moraine.

Reaching the Kangchenjunga base Camp at Pang Pema we gaze in awe at the huge north face of Kangchenjunga. Ascending higher we cross the Kangchenjunga Glacier and enter an inner sanctum Where snow-capped ridges lead to Jongsang Peak, Pyranid Peak, Tent peak and the soaring summits of Kangchenjunga.

From Pang Pema we descend the terminal moraine before following the yak harriers trail over the Mirgin La (4725 meters) – the divide between the northern and southern approaches to kangchenjunga. Completing this traverse we gain spectacular views of Jannu and the huge south face of Kangchenjunga before returning through villages and along forested-trails to Taplejung.
