Step into the wild with this awesome nomadic camping trek in the Himalayan foothills, with incredible views of the third highest peak in the world –  Mount Kanchenjunga (28,169 feet – 8,586 metres). Trek through the beautiful rhododendron forests and experience the pure, unspoiled Himalayan wilderness. We enjoy traditional cultural experiences at lower altitude, before taking on a breathtaking 9 days trekking and camping at higher altitudes. This wild camping trek provides the perfect opportunity to get away from it all and get back to nature. You wont find Wifi, you wont find locals, you wont find modern civilisation – just the stunning Himalayan mountains, the lush Sikkimese wilderness, your trekking buddies and our team of professionals to ensure your journey runs smoothly. Some people prefer to do this trek than Everest Base camp or Annapurna because of non commercial route and total experience of wilderness. It is als.  You may wish to arrange your own flights.

We’re now high above the Talung Glacier and can enjoy views of the high ridges and peaks above the upper Prek Valley. The pass is often shrouded in mist and cloud not long after sunrise, so an early start is necessary. The trail heads along the far side of the lake and through moraine before crossing a sandy section alongside the Onglakhing Glacier. From here, you can see the pass at the head of the valley. This trek through the lateral moraine is challenging – more so if there has been a recent snowfall. The Goecha La is marked with fluttering, colourful prayer flags, framing the peak of Kangchenjunga.
