Kanchenjunga Trek 25 days

Kanchenjunga region, like in all high-altitude settlements in Nepal, the prevailing culture is heavily Tibetan-influenced, and usually Buddhist. A trek around this enormous mountain is a chance to experience a wide range of people, flora, and fauna. One of the least visited of all major mountain areas of Nepal, the Kanchenjunga region offers an interesting comparison between low- and midland and the highland. The Limbu and Rai villages below the snow line are fascinating. Men from these communities have been one of the four ethnic groups recruited into the British and Indian armies. Many people believe that the exposure and cosmopolitanism this resulted in, combined with the proximity of east Nepal to the Indian educational centres of Darjeeling and Kalimpong, accounts for the progress, development and prosperity here. Limbus have special ways of weaving, distinctive jewellery, shamans, and a wonderful drink called tongba - fermented millet doused in hot water served in a covered metal container and sipped through an iron straw
