Trip Overview:

Among the trekking trails in Nepal the trekking trail that leads to the Khanchenjunga Base Camp trek (South) is comparatively new. These seventeen days of trekking takes you to one of the most remote location on earth.  The nature and culture of the area is still untouched from modern developments and people have a simple and easy way of life very much dependent on the mercy of nature. We can see the influence of Buddhist traditions, shamanistic practices and little bit of Hinduism in here.

The nearest village is Simbu which is the most developed and has quite cozy accommodation. People often claim to have spotted snow leopards on the trail below This will add a couple of days to your trip. The exact height has not been measured but it is most likely. It is also a non-technical summit, so basic mountaineering equipment and skills will get you safely to the summit where photos make the extra effort worth it. As with theSouth base camp trek, accommodation is very basic and, at higher altitudes small stone huts, which are only open at peak times make camping a reasonable choice. There are always good flat aerie’s to pitch your tent.
