Single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional USD 290. Understand that the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek involves trekking in remote locations so the restroom facilities in the tea-houses will be basic.
  • We will be served buffet-style breakfast in Kathmandu whereas all meals including breakfast, lunch and dinner will be available during the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek. While on trek, we have breakfast and dinner in the tea-houses/lodges we spend the night and lunch on our way to the next destination. Nepalese, Tibetan, the more common continental and Indian cuisines are common choices in the menu.
  • In difficult treks you are likely to walk for 6-8 hours, cross steep hilly terrain and occasional high passes with daily ascend and descend of around 500-1000m. You are likely to be on a remote environment with extreme weather in some days where you might be facing high altitude air with low level of oxygen and only basic facilities on some nights. Previous trekking experience, physical fitness and positive attitude are therefore essential.
  • Autumn months (September-November) and spring (March to May) are considered as the best seasons for Kanchenjunga Circuit trekking. There is better visibility of the landscape during these months, the rivers are lower and the temperature is cooler on the first few days of the trek.
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 12 travelers
