Located in far Eastern Nepal, Kanchenjunga is one of the most remote and beautiful areas to trek. 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 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.

The Durbar square, protected as an UNESCO world Heritage site, is the social, religious and urban focal point of the city. There are also museums inside the palace building. There is an entrance fee of Rs.250 for foreign visitors. Your ticket to the Square entitles you to visit all the museums.

This is a good place to turn around and retrace our steps to Tseram. To go further, we would need to climb down the rough moraine unto the Yalung Glacier and pick our way through the boulder-strewn glacier towards Kanchanjunga. We return back to Tseram where we lay our camp.
