The Kanchenjunga and Olangchung Gola Trek is tough and we recommend it only to trekkers with previous experience of trekking at high altitude.
This is a long and adventurous trek to a remote part of Nepal, a region which sees far fewer trekkers than other areas because of it’s remoteness. It is a fantastic trip where you’ll see a lot fewer people than on many of the other trekking routes in Nepal. The trail explores the area around Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world.
We recommend a pure camping arrangement for this trek as most of the scattered lodges in this region are very basic (draughty stone huts with mud floors) and those above Ghunsa usually close down at the end of November. This trek’s infrastructure, as far as tea houses, is considered basic and not developed like the Everest and Annapurna regions. However, the trail here is not anything like the other developed and over commercialized treks. It is quieter and truly off the beaten path.
Trekking in the Kanchenjunga region is relatively strenuous since the region is regarded as the most remote place of Nepal. The region offers an infinite variety of landscapes, cultures and panoramic views of the Himalayas. Walking on the low-lands of Nepal passing terraced fields, colorful villages, green forests, this trek enters into a ridge line of rhododendron and gains altitude as we reach Olangchung Gola(Walungchung Gola). Easily one of the best places in this region – Olangchung Gola is a fantastic alpine valley that is stunning both in scenery and culture.
From Olangchung Gola, we hike up the remote northern valley to towards Tibet. After crossing the Nango La to Ghunsa, we trek up north along the Kanchenjunga glacier to pay a visit to the North base camp at Pang Pema. From there our trail leads us across the village-laden middle hills of eastern Nepal before it comes to an end in Taplejung. The Kanchenjunga and Olangchung Gola Trek is tough and we recommend it only to trekkers with previous experience of trekking at high altitude.
