The world’s third highest mountain Mt. Kanchenjunga (8585 m) endows unique experience to the trekkers other than those memories of usual Everest and Annapurna region trekking in Nepal. The trekking route of the eastern Nepal is the symbol of sacredness to the locals. It is believed that the mountain bestow blessings of prosperity and those mountaineers who successfully climb the mountain don’t stand on its summit. The historical fact that the leader of first successful summit of Mt. Kanchenjunga in 1955 promised then Maharaja of Sikkim to stand short of the summit once scaled. This is for the expedition but for the trekkers doing Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek it would be the journey towards five great jewels of snow. Trekkers will get abundance of the tranquility, remoteness, wilderness adventure, vegetations and local culture to explore.
The flight from Kathmandu to Suketar or Taplejung district is the first action during Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek. Outstanding villages like Ghunsa, Khambachen, Mitlung and Lhonak present marvelous opportunities for the trekkers to witness the rich cultural background of eastern region people of Nepal. During the trip the journey of the Yalong Ri Base Camp (5400 m) is the highest altitude to trek on. The panoramic view of the mountains as far as the Mt. Chomolhari of Bhutan would worth every penny spent for this trip. As the trekkers reach the Kanchenjunga Base Camp (5100 m) our trekking guides will be extremely alert. The mountain is highly prone to the avalanches as well. In fact Kanchenjunga often provides surprising large avalanches too. Accommodation will be in the tented camps and about a month of this trekking in Nepal could be arduous task too. The detour of the Kanchenjunga circuit would test your physical perseverance and spirit of adventure. The journey returns back to Suketar for the flight to Kathmandu.

Annapurna Circuit in May
it was great while we were there together on the mountains etc. All in the same boat and as they say that sinking feeling but we were adamant and were keen on not letting the ship drown and carried on and persevered and eventually we saw light at the end of the tunnel - literally - we reached muktinath -a very holy place for buddhists and hindus alike !!!

Best Trekking company in Nepal
Our guide Prem Pandit (Managing Director / Owner of Mountain Hawk) was outstanding from the time we booked with Mountain Hawk over the internet to the time we flew out of Nepal. He provided immediate responses to any questions we had over the internet.

Upper Mustang Trek
My wife and I went to Upper Mustang in October of 2016 with Prem Pandit from Mountain Hawk Treks. I can only say that it was the most remarkable trip we've ever been on. Mustang is vast, stark, raw, remote, and to date, unspoiled.

Recommend Mountain Hawk for anyone going trekking in Nepal
Mountain Hawk were recommended to me by friends who trekked with them last year on their honeymoon. From the organising perspective, couldn't have been easier. Prem was quick to reply to any emails as I worked out exactly what I wanted to, which ended up going to Chitwan NP and doing the Everest Base Camp trek.
