Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek is one of the great Himalayan trails, which covers the eastern part of Nepal. Kanchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world and is also popularly known as the “Five Treasures of the Great Snow”. The famous Kanchenjunga is situated in North-East Nepal and is bordered by Sikkim, India. Since the mountain partly lies in Nepal and partly in India, the view of Kanchenjunga can be seen from India, Bhutan, and Tibet. This region was opened for trekking tourism only in 1988.The Sherpas inhabit the northern part of the Kanchenjunga region whereas the southern lower part is full of the ethnic groups such as Rai, Limbus, Magars, Tamangs, Brahmans and Chhetris. The Kanchanjunga trek begins and ends at small airstrip at Suketar which lies Far East corner of Nepal.
