Hi – am in Nepal in September with work. Planning a guided/supported trip to Kanchenjunga afterwards – from approximately the 29th Sept but can be a little flexible. Was originally looking at combining Kanchenjunga with Makalu BC which I’m still keen on but also interested in just the Kanchenjunga circuit. interested in hearing from others who might be interested in the same. Am fairly experienced trekker but don’t go at a breakneck speed

  1. Hi Mark,

    I’m planning to trek the Kanchenjunga as well. We might trek together? I’m flexible with my planning but I have to be home in the Netherlands in October for a few days. So, I don’t know if the following suits you: start trekking ~7 Oct (arriving in Ktm on ~Oct 5) or start trekking at Sept 29 the latest (arriving in KTM 27/28 Sep).

    I’m an experienced trekker as well and in great condition for a 55 year young :-). A guided teahouse trek is what I’m looking for. No need for a porter for me. I did the Manaslu + Tsum Valley in 2012, it was really great. So now I’d like to trek Kanchenjunga North + South BC, one of the last bigger treks that I didn’t do.

    Let me know if you’re interested, then we can exchange more details.


  2. Hi Jaap and Mark,

    I am also looking at the kanchedzonga circuit in those dates, the catch is i don’t plan to take a guide since i heard the trail is not that difficult to negotiate. What can we do in this context ? If you guys are adamant on a guide can we meet up and travel to taplejung together ? Since me and a friend of mine don’t need guide or porter, maybe we can tie with you guys so permissions can be easily handled from a agency in kathmandu.


  3. Hi – update
    Jaap and I are planning to leave on October 1st for ~ 20 days to Kanchenjunga N and S. Well take a guide but no porter. Please let me know if interested. Happy to share porter if others interested
