A trek through the pristine mountain valley and snow treasured mountains

(5/5) By Erica Grimes I on 22 January, 2022

Kanchenjunga circuit trek leads you through the wilderness of the Kanchenjunga conservation area. On this trek, you can get magnificent views of numerous mountains including the 3rd highest Kanchenjunga. The area is trekked less by tourists and gives a very rare opportunity to experience the joy of a true wilderness. Ktmguide organised my trekking very well in terms of budget, accommodation, transportation, and food. Lhakpa was my guide and he knew the region in detail. I recommend doing this trek with Ktmguide.
