KANCHENJUNGA BASE CAMP TREK

Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek takes the visitors to the remote and isolated land of eastern Nepal which is a home of thousands of rare species of animals and birds. This is a lifetime opportunity to all the trekkers and adventure lovers of the world who wish to trek on the Himalayas of our country.
