The Kanchenjunga Himal is a jewel in the a high mountain region. A system of paths links the valleys surrounding the range. These beautiful valleys around the third-highest peak in the world didn’t open to trekkers until 1989. Even though the trail doesn’t end in a national park the travelers encounter a wealth of fauna and grandiose forests. In contrast to the Khumbu, this region is much less populated. Yamphudin in the Khabeli Khola and Phole (in Summer Kambachen) are already the last villages. While nobody lives in the Yalung valley it is used as for pastures. Most passes (with the exception of the Lapsang La) are relatively easy to cross. Should you like to avoid the Lapsang La pass you can opt for the Selele route from Tseram to Ghunsa. You can enjoy views of the majestic Kanchenjunga from the south and the north.
