Kanchenjunga Gochela Trek

19 Nights & 20 Days


One of the most magnificent treks of the subcontinent, this one requires reasonable amount of fitness and a dire love for the outdoors and the mountains. It is best to do it in Oct-Nov or March-April, when there is little chance of the rains. Towering snow covered peaks, sprawling meadows and interactions with locals along the way are the highlight of this trek. The trek challenges the most seasoned of travellers, so it recommended to gauge your fitness first.
