PHYSICAL CONDITION REQUIREMENT
Discovery Mountain Trek can offer advice and recommendations about health requirements but it is the individual responsibility of each trekker to acquire any necessary documents and medical care. The information on the technical sheet provided is indicative, it is your responsibility to check with the authorities concerned for the exact requirements for your chosen destination at the time of travel. If you do not obtain any necessary medical consultations or travel documents and are not allowed to enter a country, or suffer personal injury or death as a result, we have no liability to you for any cost, loss or damage which you suffer nor will we refund you the cost of any unused portion of your travel arrangements. It is your responsibility to comply with the regulations and procedures of police, customs and health at all times throughout your trip.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
The best time to travel in Nepal is in spring (February to May) and autumn (September to November). The temperature is moderate in these seasons and guarantees amazing views through the trip. Although this trek can be undertaken during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.

GUIDE & STAFF ARRANGEMENT
The most significant thing that makes this trek enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced and helpful Guide and crew member who have the ability of guiding our trek on the mountain smoothly. Our trip will be led by the best and most professional Guide. All of Discovery Mountain Trekking Guide’s are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, skills and personal aptitude. With an objective of sustaining local communities, Discovery Mountain Trek only employs local Staff, who have knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local region.

PORTER CARE
We are firmly committed to porter rights. We make sure that all our porters are well treated, well paid and we provide the level of shelter, clothing and footwear that these harsh environments demand. Porters who become sick are treated with the same care and attention as other team members and we have previously used helicopters – at our expense – to rescue porters from dangerous situations. We support the work of the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG), making our resources available to them to help improve the working conditions of the porters. International Porters Progress Group.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS
Nepal is stunningly beautiful, but equally fragile in the mountain region. Future generations have just as much of a right to appreciate it as much as we do.  Therefore, we believe that the tourism industry has an obligation to protect and preserve it. Discovery Mountain Trek employs a ‘zero impact’ policy on the natural environment and the traditional communities that live there. Discovery Mountain Trek, therefore, enforces a number of do and don’t. Please talk to your trek Guide to avoid environmental impacts.

TRAVEL INSURANCE
It is a condition upon joining any of Discovery Mountain Trek trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.

ACCLIMATIZATION
This trek’s itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. During this trip, one day we take rest in somewhere which will help us acclimatize to the high altitude.

Details

 A trip to Kanchanjanga organized by Discovery Mountain Trek is an opportunity to have a unique and wonderful experience of trekking in the remote hills and mountains of Nepal. The trail is lined by natural and unspoiled beauty. The landscapes are awesome, with splendid views of several peaks in the Kanchanjanga Region in eastern Nepal.

At 8,586 meters, Mt. Kanchanjanga is the third highest peak in the world. A less explored route, this satisfying experience lets you savor the exotic beauty of the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. We will see Mt. Jannu, Mt. Kirat Chuli, Mt. Kanchanjanga, and several other peaks in eastern Nepal. You will be trekking along deep valleys with unique religions and races – who have their equally unique culture. You will come across a glacier, frozen lakes, glacial rivers, dense green forests, and alpine jungles – all during this one program from Discovery Mountain Trek.

It is relevant to mention that Kanchanjanga is one of the prominent regions where stories and tales of yeti emerge from time to time. The amazing topography, when you see it, is very likely for the snowman to provide shelter! At least, it makes all those stories credible when you see the vertical landscapes that might eventually let a yeti hide! Fables aside, the real wildlife you might see are the elusive snow-leopard, musk deer, red panda, the mountain black bear, and several other species of mammals and reptiles. On the avian side, you will see the pheasant, magpie, and the aptly named shy dragon.

We will begin with a flight from Kathmandu Suketar, and take us to the villages of Lali Kharka to Khesewa and to Mamankhe in the Kanchanjanga peaks. Later, we will trek through villages like Yamphudin, Tortong, Cheram, Ramche and cross an incredible four different high-altitude passes in a single day. We will then reach the Base Camp and return to Suketar for a flight back to Kathmandu.

Although it requires a lot of stamina, the rewards are totally worth it. In recent years, it is growing popular among trekkers but traditionally peak climbers would prefer to visit Kanchanjanga Base Camp – the highest point of this trek. It is, my many measures, the ultimate Nepalese trekking in the remote and mountainous region of Kanchanjanga.
