Kanchenjunga Circuit and Base Camp Trek Oct, 2015
“Kanchenjunga Circuit/Base Camps trek, Oct, 2015”
Trek off the beaten path, far from the crowds, into the sparsely populated and remote N.E. corner of Nepal, to the home of the Snow Leopard and the world’s third highest peak – Kanchenjunga.
Two of us, both retired Americans with Nepal experience, are going to trek the Kanchenjunga Circuit beginning early October 2015 (slightly flexible). This will be an independent trek (not a packaged tour) with a comfortable 23 day schedule securing our food and lodging at basic tea houses at budget prices along the route (no camping needed). Each trekker will be responsible for their own expenses which would include permits, transportation, food, lodging, own porter (if desired) and personal incidentals. Shared costs would be the required guide’s daily rate and bus or possible Jeep hire to Taplejung. Our intention is a simple, relaxed, enjoyable and budget-mid range trek with each person making their own daily food and expense choices.
This is not an ‘easy’ trek by Nepal route standards, but in terms of sheer views of the massif and unspoilt village culture, this trek is considered one of the finest in the entire eastern Himal. Best information on the trek can be found here: http://kanchenjungatrek.org/.
We would like to add a couple more trekkers to defray shared costs and to enhance the group dynamic and interaction. We would like to keep it to a party of four, which we have found to be the most practical, but will consider any serious inquiry.
If this sounds interesting, post back or send a PM and we will get back to you with more information.
