On the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trail

The trail on the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is a walkable cobblestone path through forests littered with lakes, at times a little steep, till we reach Dafey Bhir Pass (4330m), the highest point on the Sikkim side of the Singalila Ridge. As the trek gently starts from Uttaray and reaches Chewabhanjyang, the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek slowly unfolds; the entire valley on the Nepal side and as well on the Sikkim side, along with Everest, three sisters, and the Kanchenjunga Range, can be surveyed with ease.

Although the final destination that you are headed for is the Kanchenjunga Base Camp at Goechala Pass, you will notice that the entire hiking trail is made up of beautiful mountain scenery and natural wonders. The very first thing that you notice once you are on the Sikkim side of the Singalila Ridge, on the second day of the Sikkim Kanchenjunga trek at Chewabhanjyang, are the Himalayan views and then the crystal-clear alpine lakes as you approach Sikkimey Megu. A scenery like out of a nature magazine.

The Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek, especially on the day while crossing the Dafebhir Pass (4330m), is truly otherworldly, as you have an incredible view over the Everest and the Kanchenjunga Range along the way. Another vital part of the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is that you also have the local cultural experience of engaging with the local Yak herders along the trek route, and you may also get the opportunity to share a cup of tea with them. If you have limited time, then there is also a shorter variation of the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek, the Yuksom Goechala Trek. Eight days and an 80-km trek.

Not only the views and the trail, but also the smiling demeanor and the mannerism of the people of Sikkim make the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek refreshingly different from all other trekking trails in the Himalayas. Every turn and bend on the Kanchenjunga Trail beckons one to stop and admire the unusually long Himalayan Range. The Peaks rising from the sea of clouds, and sometimes cloudless right from the bottom, are indeed an enduring scene. A peculiar dreamy feeling will envelop the onlooker, and the surroundings will appear surreal. The world may have taken a different garb now, but the charms and magic of the old Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek still hang in the air.

How hard is the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek?

The trek to Kanchenjunga Base Camp is the most beautiful trail to hike in the Sikkim Himalayas. But it is also among the most strenuous of the trekking trails in Sikkim and, at times, very challenging.

The Uttaray Chewabhanjyang Circuit route to the Kanchenjunga Base Camp is the strenuous route up and arguably the best hiking route in Sikkim. That’s because the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is a combination of all of the best elements of the other routes rolled into one fantastic hike.

If you’re looking for beautiful scenery, plenty of solitude, a healthy challenge, and the potential to spot wildlife, this is definitely the route for you. This path is virtually devoid of other trekkers, and as a result, the campsites are quiet, peaceful, and practically deserted.

A solitary Trek

Because the Uttaray Chewabhanjyang Kanchenjunga Base Camp trek route is longer than the other trails in Sikkim, it gives trekkers a chance to take in more of the mountains of Sikkim. Not only do they get a chance to hike across the awe-inspiring landscape of the Sikkim Himalayas, but they’ll also catch views of the Everest Range and the Kanchenjunga Range along the way.

The Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek also provides amazing views down onto the open valleys of Nepal that are found to the north of the trail, something that is seen by only a handful of other hikers while trekking on the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trail.

Best Season

April–May is a good time to trek when the park is alight with different varieties of flowering plants and the high meadows are filled with wildflower blooms. But the slowly approaching rain-bearing monsoon clouds will engulf the Sikkim Himalayas during May, because of which April is a good month for mountain views as well as for flowers.

October to November is another season recommended for this trek when the area is crisp and fresh and the horizon is clear for great mountain views. Be prepared for some rain from the retreating monsoon, but nothing much to get alarmed about, as October and November are dry months.

Accommodation and Food

The Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek in Sikkim is a camping trek, as no settlements are allowed inside the Kanchenjunga National Park. Twin shared sleeping tents (A-Tent or Dome Tent) with three-inch foam mattresses each for nighttime use will be provided.

Local vegetarian foods, such as Dal, rice, and curry, will be the staple diet during the entire Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek period.

But other food items like Chowmein, Noddle Soup, Macaroni, and Chapatis (bread) will be provided for lunch.

Breakfast is normally porridge, bread with jam and butter, pan cakes, eggs, and fruits, with coffee or tea.

Dinner will consist of rice, dal, and vegetable curry with soup, and end the dinner with hot chocolate drinks.

After the entry formalities are done, the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek from Uttray to Chewabhanjyang begins on a wide trail through a tropical, moss-laden pine and conifer forest decorated with ferns and lichens. This forest is home to wild animals like bears, musk deer, and hares.

Chewabhanjyang is a pass between Nepal and Sikkim, where trade between the two countries used to take place. As a result, the Indian Army has stationed security forces here. There is a police post on the Nepal side of the border too. The first day of the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is a challenging one, with a lot of uphill climbing until you reach Chewabhanjyang.

The altitude gain on the first day of the trek is 1100 meters, and it can be tough if you’re not used to this kind of terrain. However, the views of the surrounding mountains, the lush forests, and the unique wildlife make the effort worthwhile

Day 6: Acclimatization Day. Side Trek to Phoktey Dara on the Singalila Ridge. Overnight Tents.

Day 7: Trek Chewabhanjyang to Gairi (3600 m/10.5 km/5 hours). Overnight Tents.

With a gain in altitude of 400 meters, the trail of this day of the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek starts climbing gently through pine and rhododendron forests, accompanied by the presence of the two dominant peaks of the Kanchenjunga Range.

This picturesque landscape is one of the most beautiful in the Sikkim Himalayas, making Sikkim an ideal destination for a trek. As you traverse through the forests, you’ll experience the serenity of the mountain atmosphere and be able to take in the majestic views of the mountain range.

With the gentle altitude gain and views of the mountain range, today is a pleasant day for the trek. You’ll be able to take in the fresh air and admire the spectacular views of the snow-capped peaks.

Day 8: Trek Gairi to Dhond (3900 m/6 km/3 hours). Overnight Tents.

The trail from Sikkimey Gairi immediately begins to climb with a 300-meter gain in altitude to Dhond. The trail offers spectacular views of the Kanchenjunga range, and the trail meanders through the rhododendron forest, giving way to Alpine vegetation as the trail reaches Dhond at 3900 meters. The trail is lined with Primula flowers, making it a picturesque journey through the Himalayan region.

Day 9: Trek Dhond to Paharae Megu (3800 m/12 km/5 hours). Overnight Tents.

Located in a lush green meadow and surrounded by rhododendron forests on all sides, Paharey Megu is a stunning camp site. A five-minute walk up to the ridge on the India-Nepal border offers an awe-inspiring view of the Kanchenjunga range as the sun rises. This mesmerizing sight is a must-see for any trekker and a sight to cherish.

The eighth day of the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is relatively easy, with no gain in altitude. It is a slight uphill and downhill trek through the rhododendron forest until you reach Paharae Megu, the camp site for the night. Along the way, you will be surrounded by the beauty of the remote and isolated landscape of the Sikkim Himalaya.

Day 10: Trek Paharae Megu to Jomlae Pokhari (4100 m/11 km/5 hours). Overnight Tents.

The 9th day of this trek is an amazing one, thanks to the spectacular views of Kokthang and the Kabru sisters. The trail is wide and easy to follow for about 1 km, and then the trail starts climbing for an hour. Then the trail levels out on a wide stone trail till the Twin Lakes, which also form the border between India and Nepal. This is where we stop for lunch. On the other side, one can see the small settlement of Timbong Pokhri, which falls inside Nepal. The hard trek uphill is compensated by the many lakes that are dotted along the trail, and the 300-meter gain in altitude at above 4000 meters will certainly give you an adrenaline rush. After lunch, it is a slow and steady climb to Dafey Bhir Pass and then a gradual drop down to Jomlae Pokhari, our camp site for the night.

The trail on the 9th day of the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is definitely one of the most beautiful and memorable of all the days. The views of the majestic mountains from Dafey Bhir Pass, the lush green valleys, and the many lakes that dot the mountainside give you that calming atmosphere of the Himalayas, and all these come together to give you an unforgettable trekking experience. Overnight Tents.

Day 11: Trek Jomlae Pokhari to Yangshyap (3543 m/9 Km/4 hours). Overnight Tents.

From Lam Pokhari, the trail takes you steadily and immediately up the mountain, passing through boulder-strewn paths that eventually lead to the Dafey Bhir Pass, located at an altitude of 4330m. The views a little away from the pass are nothing short of breathtaking, with the full range of the Himalayan mountains from Everest to Kanchenjunga in full view. Once at Daphey Bhir Pass, you become an ethereal part of the most beautiful 180-degree view of the Everest and the Kanchenjunga Range. It is moments like these that make up the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek in Sikkim. Moments that are meant to be bottled up and cherished forever.

From here, the path then starts to descend for about three kilometers, taking you through valleys and meadows as you make your way towards Gomathang. The last two kilometers of the trail are a steep descent, but the effort is well worth it when you reach Gomathang, where you can take a break for lunch.

After lunch, the trekking trail starts climbing immediately for about 2 km through thick pine forest. The trail then gently descends till Yangshyap, our camping ground beside a small stream for the night.

Day 12: Trek Yangshyap to Pangdin (4210 m/10 km/5-6 hours). Overnight Tents.

The trek to Pangdin, with a total distance of 10 km and an altitude gain of 710 m, is perhaps a gentle day of trekking on the eleventh day of the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek. The gentle uphill trek passes through dense tropical forest and starts climbing subtly from the time we start the trek. With the views of Pandim, Thinchenkhang, and Narsing visible on the right flank. The mountain view does compensate for the long trek through the forest. Except for the last 2 km of uphill before approaching Pangdin, the entire day of trekking is moderate in nature. The altitude gain of 700 m cannot be felt either.

Day 13: Trek Pangdin to Bikhbari (3900 m/9 km/5 hours). Overnight Tents.

The trek route from Pangdin to Bikhbari is a pleasant experience for your aching leg muscles, as it is not difficult and there is no sudden gain in altitude. As you traverse through the route, you’ll pass through Tyigabla and Rathong Valley.

Tyigabla holds immense significance to both Buddhist pilgrims and travellers alike. It is said that Guru Rimpoche, the enlightened Guru, used this route on his way to Nepal and Tibet while propagating Buddhism. It is also a route used by travellers to enter Nepal.

The most difficult part of the trek on this day is after lunch. It is a sheer uphill climb of a little more than an hour on a small trekking trail woven out on a wall. This part of the climb is treacherous, but after the climb, the scenery is beautiful, and the rest of the trek to our camp site at Bikhbari is an easy downhill trek.

Also, from Pangdin, the morning views of the snow-clad mountains of the Kanchenjunga Range are just spectacular to behold. From the ridge, you can even spot the Dzongri Campsite.

Day 14: Trek Bikh Bari to Dzongri (4030 m/8 Km/4 hours). Overnight Tents.

This is a short trek to Dzongri Ridge and an easy trek too, with a very gradual uphill trail till Dzongrilla Pass. From this pass, you can look down at the valley floor and the white peaks of Rathong, Kang, Frey Peak, and the Kabru sisters above the Himalayan Mountaineering Base Camp. From here, the trail dips slowly until we reach the camp site at Dzongri, 2 km away.

Day 15: Rest Day at Dzongri.

One of the most rewarding experiences on the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is the early morning hike to the Dzongri View Point, where you are welcomed by the most mesmerizing view of the Kanchenjunga Range. The view is especially rewarding during sunrise when the alpine glow colors the summit of Kanchenjunga painting it all red, and it is here that you will truly appreciate the beauty of nature. After you’ve taken in the breathtaking views, your journey back to camp begins. Breakfast awaits you on your return, making this early morning hike one of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences of your trekking experience.

Day 16 : Trek Dzongri to Lamunee (4164m/11 Km/5-6 Hrs). Overnight Tents.

After Breakfast the trek to Lamunee begins. The trail starts with a gentle uphill climb on barren Alpine vegetation with mountain views in the distance for 1 km. The trail then dips down slowly for 2 km and then a steep downhill for another 2 km till you reach the river bed at Kookrochoong. From here, the trail meanders beside the river for a Kilometer before gradually ascending through the Rhododendron Forest until you reach Thansing. The remaining 3.8 km of the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek are on a wide, level path, with Mount Pandim and Thinchenkhang ever present on your right, towering above you.

Day 17 : Trek to Goechala Pass view Point and back to Kookrochoong (14 Km/6-7 Hrs). Overnight Tents.

Trekking to the Goechala Pass View Point is an exhilarating experience that you don’t want to miss! This 15 Km long round trek starts at 3 am in the morning and takes you to a height of 15,500 feet. The Goechala Pass view point offers unparalleled views of the Kanchenjunga Range and is one of the most sought-after  destination on the Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek.

This stretch of the trek requires a certain level of physical fitness. Before reaching the Goechala View Point, you will have to cross the sacred Samiti Lake at 4210 m. Once you reach the view point, you can witness the mesmerizing sunrise on the snow-clad peaks of the Kanchenjunga Range. After spending some time at the top, you will make your way back to the campsite at Lamunee for breakfast. After a well-deserved rest, you will head down the Thansing Valley in a leisurely manner and camp for the night at Kookrochoong.

Day 18 : Trek Kookrochoong to Tchoka (2975 m/15 Km/6 Hrs). Overnight Tents.

The trek to Tchoka from Kookrochoong is perhaps the easiest part of this trek in Sikkim. This part of the trek route is a paradise for nature lovers, boasting with thick Rhododendron and Pine forests. With only a few uphill stretches until Phedang, where lunch will be served, the day’s trek is a great way to to enjoy a leisurely hike in Sikkim.

After lunch at Phedang, the trek to Tchoka is a downhill journey on a rough trail as you make your way to the campsite at the end of the day.
