I’m thinking of doing the kanchenjunga trek South to North first week of june.
I did Manaslu few years back and loved the sense of being off the beaten path. Although even that one was getting quite busy with trekkers.
Are you already thinking of doing EBC/Annapurna but still on the fence?
Is it your first time in Nepal?
Like to escape the crowds?
Then maybe think of switching to this one! It’s a minimum of 2 people plus a guide as it’s a restricted area trek for the most part.
After doing Manaslu/tsum Valley in 2012, I couldn’t imagine doing one of the more popular treks like EBC/Annapurna. Trekking along side 1000’s of others doesn’t really float my boat. It’s why I’d like to try the Kanchenjunga Trek!
I’d like to follow the exact track notes as laid out in the link http://kanchenjungatrek.org/
South to North.
Or if you’re planning on doing a different off the beaten path trek I’d be willing to save this one for another time and join your group!
Let me know!
This is the exact email from my trekking agency I have lined up, its very detailed and they seem very professional.
