Trip Overview

Highlights

The area around Kanchenjunga was opened to trekkers in 1988 and its remote location and therefore difficult approach helps ensure the Kanchenjunga region remains one of Nepal’s least-trekked regions. Experience in walking at high altitude and good health are essential to reach the destination of the Yalung Glacier Trekking.

The trek starts and ascends to the Yalung Glacier at 4800m from where the south face of Kanchenjunga is visible.
