    Your flight to Taplejung will start at the Kathmandu Domestic Airport. During the flight, you'll see the mountains and peaks you'll trek. After landing, you'll be driven to a guest house to stay overnight.

    You take a drive to Shekathum from Taplejung between the majestic Eastern Himalayas. You'll be amazed by the waterfalls and green forest going through winding mountain roads. Upon arriving at Shekathum, a remote village, you'll start your expedition of scaling Kanchenjunga Base Camp.

    You'll cross a suspension bridge, go through dense forest, ascend steep trails, descend again, and cross through rivers. Pass through a gorge and Solima Village, and we reach Amjilesa. You trek along a riverbank, through a forest of bamboo, fir, and rhododendrons. Climbing uphill, cross a few small bridges, and walk past waterfalls, to reach the Tibetan settlement of Gyabla.

    You start from Gyabla towards Ghunsa the next day. You ascend through breathtaking peaks, waterfalls, and natural beauty; you'll reach Ghunsa.
