Exactly translated Kanchenjunga means "Five treasures of snow", but actually there are seven main summits. The Kanchenjunga belongs with its height of 8'585 m to the Third highest mountain in the world and, at the same time, the most easterly eight-thousander. It is the home of the gods that give the country prosperity and goodness. Until 1852 it was believed that the Kanchenjunga is the highest mountain in the world.
The Kanchenjunga offers a fantastic mountain scenery, various plants and animals as well a rich culture, which is quite different than the western part of Nepal.
The trek takes us over the Mirgin La Pass, through the villages Mitlung, Ghunsa, Khambachen and Lhonak to Pang Pema 5'143 m, the base camp for expeditions on the north side of Kanchenjunga II is the highlight of the first part of this tour.
