The sky high peaks of the Kanchenjunga massif will fill you with awe and inspiration. This area is also famous for its exotic and rare flora and fauna. According to the famous British Explorer Freshfield, who visited this area in the late 19th century, this is heaven for botanists the world over. This trek also provides an opportunity to see some of the most inaccessible monasteries of the world which lies in the shadow of the mighty Kanchenjunga.
The original inhabitants of Sikkim were Lepchas, then came Bhotias from Tibet, who were followed by the Nepalese who settled there in large numbers and are now in a majority.
Col.N.Kumar who was the leader of the first ever successful Kanchenjunga expedition from Sikkim personally organizes this trek and sometimes accompanies the same.
