Kanchenjunga is located on the eastern side of Nepal which is near to the border of Sikkim, (a small Himalayan state in India). Till 1800, Kanchenjunga was known for the highest mountain in the world.
This area was not opened for trekking till 1980 but as it is known that this region is safe for traveling many tourists are attracted. At present, Kanchenjunga Conservation Area and a special permit are required for having trek in this region. With this restriction, awesome flora and faunas still exist in this region.
As regards the mountains themselves, there are four auxiliary summits above 8,000 m in addition to the main Kanchenjunga peak, the most important being Kanchenjunga West, otherwise known as Yalung Kang (8,505). Moreover, there are some 20 peaks above 7,000 m, the highest being Kambachen (7,903 m), Janu (7,710 m), Jongsong (7,483 m), Kabru (7,353 m), Tent Top (7,36 m).
There are many peaks above 6,000 meters in height, too. Within this fantastic bunch of hills are five large glaciers. Zumu, Talung, and Rathong flood through Sikkim as the Kanchenjunga and Yalung glaciers flood west into the mighty Tamor River of Nepal.
This fair adds to the fact traveling in Kanchenjunga is an outstanding experience where explorers get straight into the heart of the isolated, less-traveled mountains and valleys of the Himalayas.
With the continuing development of the Great Himalayan Trail’s travel map, the travel industry is progressing in this, as are other remote areas, so more tea houses are opening up on the route. While this is good for the community networks, it will be a great chance for more travelers to ‘discover’ the area to go to Kanchenjunga!
