Kanchenjunga (8,586m) the third highest peak, is where the name of this region is derived from. It falls in the eastern Nepal which also includes Makalu Base Camp. There is endless variety in this part of the country. Most ethnic groups are represented and many beautiful villages such as Dhankuta, Khandbari and Bhojpur, are prosperous and clean.
Treks in this area tends to be more expensive since we will have to organise all the trekking gears as well as food items from Kathmandu and fly all the way to this region. The treks are longer too as it takes at least two weeks just to reach the high mountain areas. But it is very rewarding and unforgettable.
