Kanchenjunga Base Camp trek is an adventurous in far eastern Nepal.Comparing to other region this trek is more wilderness and remoteness. Mountains and massive forest views are fantastically awesome, and the people from this reason are the friendliest so the trekkers feel the worthy doing a trek there.
Being at the height of more than 5000 meters north and south base camps, Crossing several passes Selele pass, Mirgin la Pass and Senion lapche pass are challenging and the diverse of landscapes are beautiful which make you the whole trek is just incredible and adventurous-nowhere you see.
