Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek
Hi, I’ve just signed up to go to both North and South Kanchenjunga Base Camps with a Nepalese trekking company Exciting Nepal Treks and Expedition. At this stage it’s just my guide/porter Suman Lama and myself but I would like a few more trekkers to join me. The trek there is a remote area trek, but it’ll be a basic teahouse trek.
I have trekked in Nepal before, first to Everest BC and Kala Pattar and also through Tsum Valley and Manaslu circuit trek. Both were great experiences but after Tsum Valley I got a taste for more authentic and remote trekking experience, staying in local people’s houses instead of often crowded and westernised teahouses of Annapurna region.
I have researched several Nepalese companies and not many have trekkers to go there at the time convenient to me (1 – 24 April 2017).
I’m 51, and have lived in Australia for 27 years. I was born and raised in Poland. Apart from English and Polish, I can understand Spanish quite well as I used to live in Spain and spoke it then.
