About the Destination:

The Khangchendzonga or Kanchenjunga Base Camp trek is considered to be one of the awe-inspiring treks in India. Offering some of the challenging yet delightful trails, this trek is undertaken by trekkers from different parts of the world. While for the non-adventurers this trek might sound difficult and strenuous, for the thrill mongers it is a dream come true. Geographically, Kanchenjunga and other surrounding five massive peaks are together forming the third highest peaks in the world. 

They are in the mighty Himalayas located in the small beautiful state of India, Sikkim. Kanchenjunga stands at an elevation of about 8586 meters and covers a large portion of Himalaya which is known to be the Kanchenjunga Himal, around 7000 meters area. The Main, Central and South are the three major sections of the peak and they are all located in touch with the borders of India and Nepal.

Trekking was not allowed here initially and later when explorers started unwinding the trek routes, they could find the hidden treasures like lakes, dense forests, tribal villages, landscapes and rich flora and fauna. The massifs spans across the major boundaries of Nepal, Tibet and India and the fact is that till 1849, Kanchenjunga was considered to be the highest peak in India before the discovery of Everest and K2. The verdant meadows, quaint villages, gleaming mountains, secluded regions, snow-clad summits, gushing rivers and lakes are the prominent attractions lying on the way to the base camp. These are the simple reasons for trekkers to choose this strenuous trek to rejuvenate themselves.

    The trekking experience was good. This trek is every trekker’s dream trek. This was the most adventurous trek that I have ever been on. From river crossing to swimming, from trekking to hiking, from walking to camping, this trek has it all. We went on this trek as a gang of three people. We were worried that we might feel left out as most people trek as a bigger gang, but we were in for a fun ride. There were several small gangs and we all ended up like a big gang of buddies. The camp was awesome and super fun. The various experiences we got during this trek will always be cherished in my memory. This was and will remain to be the best trek I ever had.

    This was a nice luxurious trek. The trek was for a week, and we were handed out our itineraries well before. We even had a cab pick-up from the airport to the base camp. From there we went on trekking. The trekking was another nice experience. We had a really nice time with this trek. It was well-planned and nicely done.

    It was a dream come true for me and some of my friends. We have been planning a trek to Sikkim for a long time. We are a group of all girls and we were looking for some packages only for women. But we did not get many options. Finally we decided to book a tour package with other people also. But it went well. We did not face any trouble during the whole trip and very much thankful to all the people came with us and the guides. There was a woman manager too in the group since we were in the trip. Sikkim is a treasure house. It has everything for any age group. The trek was simply amazing. We were so excited and the routes were challenging. Our parents were asking how can we do trekking all alone. But I think, Kanchendzonga and other mountains in Sikkim do not have such variations as boys or girls. It was welcoming from the starting point to the end. Guys, the views from the top were extra ordinary. What we can see are long stretches of mountains and the snow cladding peak tops. The sunrise views were omg extremely astounding. The peaks were glittering in the first rays and it is the most scenic sight. We found yaks too. I was seeing yaks for the first time. They are so cute. Gentle too. But was scared to touch and pamper. What if they do not like us. They were roaming around freely. We were slow at many points since the routes were not so smooth but challenging too. So we had to stop in between, hydrate ourselves and continue. So according to the schedule we could not finish the trek also the last day was a little messed up. We could not explore the places as we discussed earlier but we did not feel it as a loss. Since all the places we saw were absolutely beautiful. We’ll plan some similar trips in the future and will head out to conquer the paths with more energy.

    It was an amazing trek, worth spending money. Sikkim is a small state but with plenty of things to be seen. Kanchenjunga Mountain is a remarkable beauty. It is completely covered with snow. When we went, it was just the starting of winter, still the area began to be white. I am thankful to the entire team for making the trip fun filled and exciting. We never felt that the routes were so tricky or difficult to be covered. The guide was also very enthusiastic throughout the trek though he was going through the same routes for many years now. But he managed the group so well and was taking care of everything from the beginning to the end with utmost sincerity. The lake we saw on the way was the highlight of the trip I guess. It was so amazing to see. The water so clear and the environment was pretty. I don’t think there was anything bad throughout the trip. None in our group had any kind of bad feeling or experience as far as I know. Moreover, everyone was enjoying it too. Helping each other, sharing food, telling stories and so on. Kanchenjunga trek is a challenging trek and if it is winter, then the difficulty level will be increased. Still, it is very exciting to go along the narrow pathways and the rugged ways to reach the top of many hills and mountains. We felt so special and this trek will be close to our heart forever. Sikkim is a place which can be travelled in one week I think and all the places are very clean and maintained so well by the locals. Very beautiful.

    4. What is the level of fitness expected from the participants?

A Flashlight (with spare batteries) will help once the sun goes down and it’s always smart to carry insect repellent and emergency medical kit.

    6. Which type of shoes should I buy?

      Good quality and sturdy trekking shoes that cover your ankles. Refrain from using sport shoes for your own safety and the trails are uneven and tricky hence requiring good grip trekking shoes. If you are buying new shoes for your trek, please remember to use them for at least a month before you commence your holiday.

      You will be served Indian vegetarian food during this trek. Breakfast and Dinner are included. Himalayan water is considered a clean and mineral water but to be on the safe side you will get boiled water with chlorine tablets.

    8. How much weight will I have to carry? Will there be porters?

      A 60 Ltr backpack is advisable to carry but amount of weight to be carried depends on your requirements and capacity. Porters and mules will be available and costs are included in the trek package.

    9. Does one feel altitude sickness over there? If yes, how to avoid it?

      Altitude sickness is very common among trekkers during himalayan treks, it is wise to consult your doctor for the right medication before your trip. Drinking lots of water can also help stabilize the body along with resting at regular intervals. The best rate of acclimatization is to gain no more than 300m (1000 feet) per a day. If you increase this rate you will be much more susceptible to Elevation Sickness. Getting adequate sleep also can help avoid this.

    10. Can I have liquor or smoke while we're on the trek?

      No. Since both these activities can let your body dehydrate easily. Then you will find it very difficult to complete the stretches. Alcohol will open the pores in your skin and let the cold get inside and make the body temperature in terms with the temperature outside. But it will finally lead you to feel dehydrated and thirsty. Hence try not to smoke or consume alcohol. Many of the trekking tours will not allow the participants do any such activities during the trek.
