Strategy and Adventure Preparation

Planning and preparation are required before making your Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek one of the most memorable treks in your life.

Awareness of timing is critical. Trekking is best done in the spring and autumn when the sky is fine and the atmosphere is bright. The trek is less likely to see snow or rain, and the temperatures are pleasant during these months.

A further significant element is physical fitness. It is suggested to start training for the arduous Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek at least three to four months beforehand by performing regular exercise, including hiking, running, and cycling.

Due to the trek’s different elevations, acclimatization is also required. It is recommended to stay in Kathmandu for at least two nights before climbing to acclimate to the higher elevations and reduce the risk of altitude sickness.

A successful hike also is contingent on having the proper clothing. You will require sufficient clothing and footwear, a warm sleeping bag, a rising backpack, a headlamp, and a water bottle. It’s vital to have a complete list of recommended supplies, which you may get from your trekking agency.

To ensure you get everything you need for the trip, including clothing, footwear, technology, and personal items like soaps and first aid supplies, it’s critical to create a complete survival kit and consult your trekking guide.

Logistics of the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek

Despite the complex logistics of the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek, it is possible to have a seamless and pleasant experience with careful planning and preparation. Here are some crucial logistics to think about:


Suketar, where the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek begins, is approachable by jeep from Bhadrapur upon a flight from Kathmandu. Suketar can also be accessible from Kathmandu by road, but it may take several days.


During the walk, lodging is offered in tea houses or lodges, which offer the most basic amenities, including a bed, a toilet, and hot water. Most lodges and teahouses in this area specialize in local Nepali cuisine and Tibetan foods.

Food and Water

Food and drink are reachable during the journey, and the preponderance of lodges provides a range of meals. To ensure the water you drink is safe, we tell you to bring filtration systems equipment, such as a water filtration straw or pills.

Guides and Porters

Hiring a guide and porter can help you navigate the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek. Besides, this is the most crucial part of the Kanchenjunga Circuit trek journey. The principles and porters can carry your bulky gear and assist you with directions. A guide can give insightful information on the local nature and culture. A porter can carry up to 25 kg of equipment.

Health and Safety

During the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek, health and safety are essential priorities. Suitable precautions must be taken, such as carrying a first aid kit available and, if necessary, taking medicine for altitude sickness. It’s also wise to inform your guide about your plan and to carry a cell phone or other communication method in an emergency.

Permit and Fees

Strict rules of the Nepal Government govern the Kanchenjunga Circuit trek. One recently passed law states that international trekkers can only go on circuit treks of Nepal with a professional guide. Therefore, trekkers who want to go for the Kanchenjunga Circuit trek from April 1, 2023, should only acquire two permits as the TIMS permit is no longer issued. So, here are the two permits that you need to obtain while going to the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek:

  • Kanchenjunga Conservation Area Project Entry Permit (KCAP), which will cost you Nrs 2,000 per person and,
  • Kanchenjunga Restricted Area Permit (KRAP), you must pay USD 20 per person for this permit. However, every trekker should remember that the Kanchenjunga Restricted Area Permit is only valid for one week.


The Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek requires travel insurance covering repatriation, tour cancelation, and hospital expenses.

The Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek: Navigation

The Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek might be challenging to navigate. Still, with the correct planning and preparation, it can be a worthwhile and memorable experience. Depending on your speed and the path you pick, the trek takes around 18 days to complete and covers a range of about 180 kilometers. However, the duration can also be extended or lessened as per the requirement of the trekkers.

Two essentials for successful navigation are possessing a quality map and getting acquainted with the trail before starting. We can provide you with a comprehensive map of the trek, and it is advised to have a compass or GPS device for navigating. It is also essential to consider the weather, as harsh weather might make the journey hazardous.

The Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek has various route alternatives, from the typical route following the main trail to more complex variations that send you off the beaten track. Irrespective of the path you select, it’s crucial to give yourself sufficient time to adjust to the higher altitudes and to take it slowly when crossing the trail’s most demanding stretches.

There are several lonely mountain communities along the trail where you can engage with the locals and learn about their way of life and culture. It’s crucial to heed your surroundings and follow local safety protocols. Several wild and domestic animals like yaks, snow leopards, and red pandas may be seen.

Accommodations throughout the trek

Nepal Guide Treks provides a range of lodging options throughout the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek for trekkers to have a pleasant tour. From the initiation point of the trek in Suketar, hikers can stay in area lodges or guesthouses that provide modest yet cozy rooms with plain beds and blankets.

However, we would like to inform all the trekkers that the Kanchenjunga Circuit trek is a teahouse trek, which means that the food and accommodation facility throughout the trek is very raw. Trekkers will be given roomy tents and all needed camping gear, including sleeping mats, warm sleeping bags, and pillows, as the journey continues and approaches more remote areas.

An experienced group of porters, cooks, and guides will be with the trekkers the rest of the time to see all their needs. While the cooks prepare delicious and healthy meals to energize trekkers, the guides will share insightful knowledge about the journey and the local culture. The porters will carry the trekkers’ backpacks, enabling them to relax and enjoy the Kanchenjunga trek.

Each day, hikers are supplied with a hot breakfast that consists mainly of regional cuisines like dal bhat or noodle soup. After a strenuous day of walking, they can also unwind with a cup of tea or coffee.

The amenities will get more primitive as the walk climbs higher in elevation. Still, the experience and the sights will be wonderful. Hot water bottles will also be available at the lodges to keep backpackers warm in their sleeping bags. The staff will do their best to make their stays pleasurable.

In conclusion, Nepal Guide Treks takes great pleasure in ensuring that trekkers have an enjoyable and relaxing trip while hiking across the beautiful Kanchenjunga trek.

High Altitude Trekking Basic Safety Advice

It’s crucial to be ready for potential health problems when attempting a high-altitude trip like the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek. While walking at Nepal’s high altitudes, the following main first-aid guidelines will always have to be monitored:

Maintain Your Hydration

Trekking at a high elevation can quickly dehydrate you. Drinking water is essential to prevent altitude sickness and other related diseases. At least 3 liters of water must be consumed every day.

Use sunscreen

The sun is much brighter at high elevations than at low elevations. Apply a high-SPF sunscreen generously to your hands, face, and neck to safeguard your skin.

Take it Slow

Trekking at a high altitude can be physically challenging. It’s essential to move more slowly and prevent overexertion. Take regular rests, and pay attention to body language if it looks drained or weary.

Stay Aware of Altitude sickness

Altitude sickness can occur at altitudes higher than 2,500 meters, so knowing the indications is crucial. The symptoms and symptoms include shortness of breath, nausea, headache, and dizziness. Any of these symptoms should have been disclosed to your guide; if appropriate, you may descend to a lower height.

Keep Warm

The temperature can fall rapidly at high altitudes, especially at night. Pack plenty of warm clothes, such as an excellent sleeping bag, hat, and gloves.

Treat Blisters Early

Blisters are a common problem for hikers. Wear comfortable hiking shoes and periodically change your socks to avoid blisters. If a blister forms, you should treat it immediately by cleansing and dressing it.

Pack a Basic First-Aid Kit

A basic first-aid kit should include painkillers, bandages, microfiber towels, and medications. Before the trek, let your guide know about allergies or medical conditions.

These pointers should make it easier for you to hike comfortably and healthily on the Kanchenjunga Trek. It’s essential to remember that trekking at a high altitude might be difficult. Thus, speaking with your doctor before starting a hike such as this is wise.
