TGovernment of nepal opened kanchanjung region to trekkers in 1988. Though, people had trekked in the area in connection with mountaineering. It is situated on the border of nepal and india, state of sikkim. to entire circuit of mountain politically is not possible. the next best altranative is to visit both base camp north pangpema (5100m.) and south yalung (4800m.) from nepal. you require being well equipped for a high pass crossing and having a minimum of four week to spare. it is not so easy to cross pass either Lapsang la or mirgin la. bad weather and snow are often to blame, but more often it is sim;lu lack of time to get starting point of kanchanjung.
Either you have to fly Suketar or drive from kathmandu to Hille Basantapur (552kms.), other option you can drive from Kathmandu to taplayjung via Ilam, but it is long journey. On the route, elsewhere, lodges are not. There is some in the manor village at the lowland that are primitive styled. You can trek either to the north or south kanchnjunga base camp but takes luck, determination and allot of time to visit both side of the peak. Both side of upper land is particularly remote. Visit of this trek is tremendously wilderness. if you are having short time, you can fly to suketar from biratnagar and fly from suketar. The lowland portion of this region is culturally intriguing, but there are few good mountain views. Once the trek reaches the high country south of kanchenjunga, the mountain scenery is some of the most spectacular in the world. The kanchenjunga region is the home of the limbus. Relatives of the rais, limbi dominate the region east of the Arun River and few live elsewhere. limbu men wear a distinctive, a Nepalese cap that is much more colorful than that worn by other Nepalese.
