Kanchenjunga Basecamps Trek

Kanchenjunga basecamps trek

There is a reason why this agency have so great reviews for sure.I was totally happy with both -the (email) service before even going-loads of info and prompt responses -the designated guide-a gem and I was even offered money by someone esle on the trek to switch-it was a joke of course but he was THAT good (ask for Tek if you do Kanchenjunga)

One caveat I did not check around for better prices elsewhere but when I heard what others were charged it seemed totally fair. This agency specializes in the more off the beaten treks I would stongly suggest (as always) that you try to book directly with a local company so the money goes to the correct place.I met a group from Europe +10 trekkers who had booked via an european trekking company and they all payed more for their trip that I did and I had a personal guide and also one porter so save money and do the right thing and go directly to a local agency. I have absolutely no problem in wholeheartedly recommending visit Himalaya Treks in fact I intend to try to do the long (42 days) extended Dolpha trek here in a year or two and I will definitely use Visit Himalaya Treks for that…and coming back is the best review of all Id say. Date - October - November - 2022.

Solo Kanchenjunga South And North Basecamp Trek

I did the Kanchenjunga South and North basecamp trek with Visit Himalaya Treks in March 2022. I was one of the first trekkers on this trek after Nepal opened after the pandemic closedown. With Tek as a guide and Dil as a porter, I was in very good hands. Tek knows the area in his own pocket and knows “everyone” along the route. The tea house in Ramche had not opened so Tek arranged tents, other equipment, and an extra porter other equipment from Tseram. This is my second trip with Visit Himalaya treks, and Himal is very good at taking care of you from the first e-mail until he drops you at the airport after your trip. March -03 -30 – 2022.

Amazing experience - 100 percent recommended.
I’ve recently completed two treks with VisitHimalaya Treks - Kanchenjunga North and South Basecamp and Gokyo Trek. While the two treks are very different from each other (landscape, infrastructure, length and difficulty vary greatly) both treks were amazing and perfectly organized. All questions were answered fast and detailed and we even met Himal personally before the beginning of the treks to discuss any open matters. A special big thanks to Ishwar Tamang our guide for the Kanchenjunga trek. He showed an incredible attention to detail, flexibility and expertise. When one team member couldn’t continue he went above and beyond to ensure his well being.

All in all I couldn’t have hoped for a better company to do my treks with - without Himal and his team my experience wouldn’t have been the same. Hope to be back soon and explore of Nepal more together with Visit Himalaya Treks. November - 2021

Kanchenjuga south and north base camp
Visit Himalaya is a topnotch trekking agency. A amazing adventure we went through with the them and the two legend, Fulkumar as our porter and Krishna our guide. It was a blast, we loved every minutes of it even in the crispy cold night in the mountain.

Fulkumar and Krishna are both true professionals and amazingly responsible during the total 23 days. With great every day little attention like afternoon tea & cookies and pomegranate after meals! Kuddos guys!!! It was a pleasure to trek with them, it always felt safe and we loved it.

These two guys deserved the gold medals no doubt about it.

From the beginning through the first emails until the border drop off on the last morning Visit Himalaya was always perfect. Thank you so much guys for all the hard work and the once in a lifetime experience. We will definitely come back soon for another adventure with you guys no doubt about it. November -2019.


We always try to be flexible to design the trip itinerary for our client’s needs. However, if you are not convinced as our suggested itinerary then off-course you are always welcome to customize or change the trip itinerary.

Holiday should never be about making it to the final point quickly. Along your trek, we can add days at your request with additional costs to cover guides, porters, accommodation, and food.

An average physical fitness should be maintained prior to booking a trek. Any sort of illness or recent medical problems should be mentioned while booking a trip. Most of our itineraries are prepared to give you maximum time to acclimatize and pace-setting on the treks would be done according to your convenience. If you are having regular medication then tell us before the trip started which would be better for us to give you the physical feedback.

Our main concern is your safety. We never compromised on your safety during the Trekking and all our guides are properly trained and well equipped to take care of our client's safety in even the remote areas as well.

There would be always back support in case of an emergency situation like severe high altitude sickness or accident (which is least expected), you will be sent to the nearest hospital if possible otherwise rescued by a helicopter and sent you to the hospital as soon as possible. Since you are entirely liable for all the expenses incurred for the use of such emergency services, please make sure that your travel insurance covers both- medical and emergency evacuation costs.

It is not a problem at all because in a mountain most of the tea house/lodges serve vegetarian food as well and our guide will take care at the time cooking and on a camping trek, our cook and staffs will care all about the food section.

Most of the lodges in the mountains are the basic ones like a guest house or tea house style. On a few major towns or settlements, where are the possibilities we provide you with the best accommodation! Also, it depends upon the service packages. 

Lately, most of the teahouses have electricity supply even with solar panels. So, charging your gadgets is not a problem at all. But charging your battery you should have to pay an additional fee (US$ 1 to 3 approx. per hour.), in order to get your gadgets to be charged.

Now a day’s most of the major village has a cell phone network connection. However, in a remote area where cell phone does not work, and even if there is not any other communication access then we send satellite phone along with our guide so you can always be in touch with your family.

Yes, either you can store the same hotel as you stayed or we can store your goods with us safely in our office free of cost.

The luggage must not exceed up to 20 kilos. A trekking helper (porter) carries baggage of less than 15 kilos. This bag can be received at the end of each day’s trek and you should carry the rest of the weight as a day bag with all your money and valuables inside it.


This is a difficult thing to gauge. We have seen everything from USD 25 to USD 900 per person for guides and porters. Tipping is not required, but a small gesture of thanks to your guides and local porters. The level of the tip should reflect the level of satisfaction from and personal involvement with your guide. However, we recommend you to spend a minimum of 10% of your total trip cost for tipping the entire local staff.
