Sikkim: Kangchenjunga Base Camp

        Sikkim, an independent kingdom until 1975, is one of the most sequestered corners in all the Himalaya.  Its northern reaches weren’t open to visitors until just a few years ago.  This easy-to-moderate trek takes us on untraveled trails to the very foot of Kangchenjunga, at 28,169’ the world’s third tallest peak.  At base camp, we’re surrounded by a semi-circle of snow-capped giants, including Sikkim’s stunning sacred peak, Siniolchu.  You'll finish the trip in Darjeeling with a visit to Tenzing’s private museum and a cup of the world famous local tea.
