Overview
The Kanchenjunga South Base Camp trek explores the Yalung Glacier and the south side of Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world. Climbing slowly along the valleys the trail ascends through pristine forests, crop fields, and tranquil villages to the base camp situated at Ramche at 4,610m. This trek requires a good level of fitness and previous trekking experience to ensure enjoyment of this challenging, yet beautiful trek in this remote eastern corner of Nepal. The base camp itself is situated at Ramche (4,610m), which is reached by following the trail through the Yalung Glacier, stopping a while at the viewpoint for Kabru, and Rathong peaks, which are part of the ridge that extends south from Kanchenjunga. In fact Kabru is the southern-most 7,000m peak in the world. From Ramche it is possible to hike to a ridge that offers views of the magnificent Kanchenjunga South Face and, a little ahead, views of the south face of Mount Janu.
