Kanchenjunga (8598m) is on the border between Nepal and the Indian state of Sikkim. The Kanchenjunga is the world's third highest mountain, and the first ascent was made in 1956. This region is home to the Limbus, who are relatives of the Rais. They are thought to have ruled the Kathmandu valley from the 7th century BC until around 300 AD. They then moved into the steep hill country of eastern Nepal, from the Arun valley to the Sikkim border, where they remain today. They are easily distinguishable by their Mongolian features. Many of the men still carry a large kukri (traditional curved knife) tucked into their belt and wear a topi (Nepali hat). A famous contribution of Limbu culture us the drink tongba. A wooden pot is filled with fermented seeds and boiling water. You drink the potent mixture through a bamboo straw, with tiny filters to keep the seeds out.

This inspirational trek in the pristine Himalayan community is rewarding journey once in a lifetime in an exotic area. This holiday provides an excellent opportunity for those who wish to penetrate the hills and valleys of eastern Nepal that leads you to the foothill of Mt. Kanchenjunga offering unlimited and superb camping sites offering magnificent natural scenery as afforded by snowy peaks visible at close. Truly an Inspirational Himalayan Trip!
