    Yes, the road trip today is lengthy. But it is best way to know about people, culture, traditions and see what they do when they travel in these roads. The flight from Kathmandu to Bhadrapur must be taken early in the morning. In the Terai area of Nepal, Bhadrapur is located. To get to Tribhuvan International Airport, you will be transported from the hotel.
    As Terai is a low-lying country in the foothills of the Himalayas, the beautiful flight changes from hilly to verdant. There are numerous jungles, rivers, and excellent agricultural land in the area.
    You descend low in the height and arrive in Bhadrapur while taking in the magnificent vistas. You board the bus heading into Phidim from here. But first, you stop in one of the restaurants for breakfast.

    Expeditions to climb Mount Kanchenjunga, the third-highest mountain in the world, which is located in Nepal, begin from Kanchenjunga Base Camp. It is a distant and uninhabited area in the Himalayas that provides breathtaking views of the nearby peaks and glaciers. Trekkers and mountaineers seeking to take in the untamed grandeur of the Himalayas frequently travel to the base camp. At a height of about 5,000 meters, the base camp offers breathtaking views of the Himalayas, including snow-covered peaks, glaciers, and alpine meadows. Due to its isolation and the need to traverse difficult terrain to get there, the region is a favorite among intrepid hikers and mountaineers. The base camp serves as a starting point for summit efforts and offers climbers basic amenities like food and shelter.

    Due to the high altitude, remoteness, and tough terrain, reaching Kanchenjunga Base Camp is regarded as a difficult journey. The trek necessitates suitable acclimatization and preparation, in addition to high physical fitness. Hikers must be able to tolerate lengthy days of walking, frequently on rough and steep slopes, and be prepared for inclement weather. Altitude sickness can also be brought on by the altitude, which can reach above 5,000 meters, therefore it’s critical to take acclimatization seriously and do it right before moving on to greater heights. Even with its difficulties, the climb to Kanchenjunga Base Camp rewards those who are well-prepared with breathtaking scenery, including vistas of high mountains, glaciers, and isolated communities.

    Kanchenjunga Base Camp is most accessible in April through May and September through November. These months provide the best views of the surrounding mountains because of the generally calm weather and clear skies. Additionally, compared to the monsoon season, the trails are less muddy and simpler to manage. It is vital to carry suitable clothing since although it is pleasant during the day, it may get very cold at night, especially at higher elevations. Winter is also a possibility, although the walk would be more challenging because of the potentially extremely low temperatures and the chance of snowy routes.Any trip to Kanchenjunga Base Camp should be carefully planned and organized in order to guarantee a secure and pleasurable experience.
