Trek to Kanchenjunga
How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains!” ― John Muir
In the Nepali language, there is a quote, which says about Mount Everest or ‘Sagarmatha’ as they call her. “You do not submit the Sagarmatha, she lets you summit” Nominated as the best in mountain environment for trekking, Mt. Kanchenjunga is every trekker’s dream trek. Some travellers often quoted as sunrise over the Kanchenjunga is a never fade away from their memory. At the elevation of 8,586 m, Mt.Kanchenjunga is a Heaven for trekkers for a reason. It falls between the Indian State of Sikkim and Nepal.
For Sikkimese people, the Kanchenjunga peak is not just the highest peak and but merely is believed to be the abode of the state’s patron deity.
Trekking to the world third highest peak is not only setting oneself closer to the big mountains along the forest of rhododendron, orchids, pine and magnolia to the highest valley but also, experiencing the rolling-meadows with the gazing yaks herded by the Lepchas. Some base camp is settled over there who sends people for this long trek, they also provide the experience of Gorchin Peak trekking, which is regarded as the one of India’s toughest trek route on the way to Kanchenjunga.
After seeing the heavenly Kanchenjunga, I felt “one does not see the Kanchenjunga, she lets you see her.” Quoted by Travel blogger Sairat Kolke.
