One of the highest points of the trek is the South base camp of Kanchenjunga situated at 4620m. From this height, you will be able to observe both Yalung and Kangshen glaciers on the southwest flank of Mt. Kanchenjunga. These two glaciers at an altitude of 4800m are the water source for the mighty Arun and Kosi rivers.

Yalung Glacier Trekking is perhaps one of the longest trekking adventures in Nepal that partly falls within Kanchejunga Conservation Area. Initially the trail passes through subtropical forests and eventually enters into temperate vegetation in higher altitude. The pristine forests and amazing flora and fauna make Kanchenjunga one of the hot biodiversity spots in the world. The blooming of rhododendrons, primula, lilies and orchids during spring and autumn is a treasure sight to behold. If you are lucky enough you could very well encounter snow leopard, blood pheasant, musk deer, red panda among the rare species. Further the region is inhabited by ethnic Limbu and Rai people whose unique culture and their harmonious relationship with nature will surely inspire a great deal of sharing. 

The actually trekking begins from Taplejung. You can either fly to Bhedatar from Kathmandu and take a private vehicle or directly take a ride to Taplejung. The trekking has been graded as difficult hence trekkers are required to have some experience of trekking in high altitude.

Adventure Thirdpole specializes in Yalung Glacier Trekking, thanks to its strong team of Sherpa guides and porters.  Spring and Autumn are the best seasons to do Yalung Glacier Trekking.
