The Kanchenjunga South Base Camp trek (4,260m), explore the Yalung Glacier and the south side of Kanchenjunga; the third highest mountain in the world. The rewards for this effort are enormous- the trail passes by remote and very beautiful Limbu villages that see few outsiders, through ancient forests festooned in dangling Spanish mosses, before finally climbing to the foot of Kanchanjunga, for the kind of views normally reserved for mountaineers. This trek requires a good level of fitness and previous trekking experience to ensure enjoyment of this challenging, yet beautiful trek in this remote eastern corner of Nepal.
The Trek to the Kanchanjunga South Base Camp normally starts from the airstrip at Suketar (Taplejung), reached via a one-hour flight from Biratnagar. At the time of research, though, the airport use to be close Time and again. Therefore most people were travelling by jeep from Illam to Taplejung and either starting their trek there (a very steep two-hour climb up endless steps to Suketar) or getting a ride in one of the frequent jeeps from Taplejung to Suketar.
