Trekking to the Kanchenjunga is wonderful since it is still remaining as virgin area in the northeastern part of Nepal. It offers unique beauty of nature with beautiful mountains as well as various types of vegetations. This part of Nepal serves you multi-ethnic faces while you are en route to the 8586m. high superb mountain. You can meet the farmers cultivating rice and cardamom, which are supplied on their back to the houses and the yak herder sleeping in the tents made of yak wool. You walk through small villages and it is very exciting to cross the rivers over the suspension bridges, which you can experience only in this area.
