Great Himalaya Trail - Kanchenjunga to Makalu Region, 53 Days

Days: 53 / Difficulty: 5 of 5 (Very Strenuous)

The Great Himalaya Trail - Section 1 (Kanchenjunga to Makalu Region)

Kanchanjanga is world’s third highest mountain and lies in the north-eastern corner of Nepal. This trek is one of the most popular trekking destinations in eastern Nepal and it is opened for the trekkers in 1988 and made it possible to visit wonderful and relatively unexplored tracts of foothill and alpine country in eastern Nepal. This area trek offers the culture diversity of Sherpa, Rai, Limbu, Chhetri and Brahmin villagers, with the higher region inhabited by a people of Tibeto-Mongoloid Ancestry. This trek also provides exploration of extreme eastern part of Nepal and has great for those explorers having natural history interest, with ecological zones from the subtropics to glacial wilderness. It features an incredible range of landscapes-mountain and glacial terrain. The trek follows the sparkling, mica-flecked Tamur River for the first trekking days along the villages as well as increasingly barren hillsides dotted with yak and slue sheep. Finally the spectacular peak of Kanchanjanga itself becomes visible and so close. The trekking in this area is relatively very strenuous since the region is regarded as the most remote place of Nepal. However the presence of numerous wild animals, birds and flora in abundance make the trekking in this region very interesting and pleasant. Unused to foreign visitors, much of the area still lies shrouded in mystery. You will pass through picturesque villages as you climb towards the enormous Kanchenjunga massif. Abundant wildlife can be seen along on the trail including musk deer, blue sheep and, for the believer, the Yeti! Magnificent views of Everest, Makalu and the Kanchenjunga massif will make the trip memorable.
