What to Expect
 The Kanchenjunga Conservation Area has been recognized by WWF as a Global Eco Region. 

 This area was only opened for trekkers since 1988. This area is basically dominated by Limbu ethnic communities. Even though other ethnic communities like Rai, Chhetris,Brahmins also have been cohesively dwelling in this region for a long time despite of variation of their rituals and traditions. The people of the region are co-operative and friendly as well as their life style is also simple one, not affected by the modernity.

The area is protected as a conservation park by the Nepal Government which is called Kanchenjunga Conservation Area. This Conservation Area is spread in an area of 2038 square km. This region was declared as the gift of the earth full of alpine grass, rocky outcrops, dense temperate and sub tropical forest and low river valley. This enchanting area offers display of flowering glory of rhododendron, lilies, orchids and many more flowers. The wildlife including snow leopard, Himalayan black bear, musk deer red panda and others are also available in this national park.

Passing through some of the country's most pristine oak and rhododendron forests brings you to harsher high terrain. Crossing the Mirgin-La pass at 4725 meters, it gives you the views of Makalu, Chamlang and Everest. In next step, you will pass the Kanchanjunga glacier, and finally you will be rewarded with an incredible, close-up view of Kanchanjunga Peak as you already approached the Kanchenjunga Base Camp at Pang Pema. Whilst exploring the surrounding area you will also see a panorama of Wedge Peak, The Twins, Pyramid Peak, Janu Himal and Tent Peak.
