Here is few tea houses provide with meals. Then the trail continue down a hot steep path, cross the suspension bridge on Phawa Khola (1430m) and up steeply to the scattered bamboo and bananas settlement of Kunjari (1800m). Here is also lodge available if you like to stay overnight. The stars twinkling at the night amazingly and village lights were like gathering over the silent hills at night but the roosters start at three in the morning as alarm for the locals. The local get up early in the morning with rosters for the day work. A sheepish climb on steps to Gurung hamlets Kande Bhanjyang (2129m), Sinchebu, Sinchewa Bhanjyang) with a nice accommodation tea house. The rest of the day goes through the Kabeli valley.

These areas are special zone for cardamom (Alanchai) and ginger-like plants under shade trees. This is main income source for the local people. In Phumphe Danda also available Teahouses. The trail goes down stairs through a cardamom plantation to a high bridge and then a gentle climb to the pretty and neat Limbu’s settlement Mamankhe (1780m) where there are several teahouses with accommodation. While having Nepali food “Dalbhat” Golbheda (Tomato) pickle was a winner and the Dahi (yoghurt) was excellent. Even they use fresh milk for Tea and coffee. Stay overnight in tea house at Mamankhe.

Day 06 : Trek Mamanke to Yamphudin (2090m)-3 to 4 hoursToday, the trail will have us jumping from stone to stone as we first have to cross the Tenguwa Khola steam. Then we climb steeply up to a ridge marked by a Chorten and many prayer flags and next downhill to the Kabeli Khola. It will be another exercise of rock-hopping over boulders, tree roots and intersecting stream channels as we head upstream. Then the trail gentle ascends to Yamphudin, where there is a mixed community of Sherpas, Limbus, Rais, and Gurungs. There is a TIMS and permit check here. There are several comfortable lodges, people are friendly and helpful.

Day 07 : Trek Yamphudin to Torotan (2990m) -6 ½ to 7 ½ hours Today is quite long day to the Torotan. It may be possible to overnight in the Bhatti on Lasiya Bhanjyang (3,310m) on benches around the walls of the single room, this is very basic accommodation, but the hotel owner and staff are cheerful and friendly and the location beautiful. Our Guide will counsel with locals, whether the Lasiya Bhanjyang Batti is open or not, if it is not, then you will need to continue walk down another 2-3 hours to Tortong. There are two trails for the Torotang, one goes direct Yamphudin to Tortang and another through the Dhupi Bhanjyang (2,620m), Serpagaun with beautiful pasture land and meet the main trail to the Chitre (2925m). But most of the trekkers follow the direct trail to Tortang. Continue climbing on a stepped track in good condition through ancient rhododendrons to the welcome Bhatti on Lasiya Bhanjyang, Lassi or Lamite Bhanjyang. If you like to stay overnight here you can climb through silver pines up the hill behind the Bhatti for extensive views of your forward route. The trail drops to the grassy pass overlooking a huge landslip with a view of Mt Jannu (7,711m) or know as Kumbakarna to the northeast. Then climb about 150m above it and descend on a muddy zigzag through lovely forest to the Simbuwa Khola and rest of the trail ascend to Tortong/ Torontan (2,990m). You will stay overnight at tea house.

Day 08 : Trek Torotan to Tseram/ Cheram (3870m) -4 to 5 hoursToday is easer then last day, even though you need to ascend there trail goes gradually up. Normally, there is not any problem to climb without getting altitude sickness, but the altitude gain in this track above Torotan is about triple, the doctor advice 300m per day for safety while hiking above the 3,000 meters. Check for signs of altitude sickness and be prepared to rest or retreat if they emerge. Please consider using Diamox, there are no clinics or easy communications in case of trouble. The trail goes through the pine and rhododendron forest with pasture land, where you can see herd of Yaks are grazing, some are playful. People bring the Yaks from Yamphudin for grazing by the track that heads up to Anda Pokhari from here. About an hour walk you find a yak Kharka, where you might get a meal or tea. After 40 munities there is a lodge at Anda Phedi. After 30mins walk ahead we will arrive at a Buddhist shrine decorated with rock cairns, prayer flags and Trisuls (the trident weapon of Shiva made by three-pronged iron). This shrine has a small cave and marks the boundary of a sacred part of the valley, from where it is prohibited to kill animals but you can see Maasu (meat) on the menu in Cheram/ Tseram (3868m), it coming crossover from the north side of Kanchenjunga. Then we keep on our way to Tseram, through a large flat meadow with a single house at 3870m that doubles as a rustic lodge. The settlements in this valley are also Goths (used for keep yak and cow by herders).

Day 09 : Trek Tseram/ Cheram to Ramche (4620m) -3 to 4 hoursThe trail heading beautiful forest of pines and rhododendrons with a small clear stream, climb and cross a large loose culvert and climb again into the seasonal yak Kharka (pasture) at Yalung (wrong 3900m on map, it might 4100m). There is an ancient monastery called Decherol Monastery; which was built by 6 monks, mention by Chandra Das in 1881, but no trace remains of it or the surrounding village although a shrine is rumored above. The trail follows a beautiful series of open valleys, with juniper, cinnamon, rhododendrons and moraines and lakes with the Kabrus, Rathong and Kokthang. Be careful while crossing the many frozen streams and seeps hike to Ramche. You can see yaks; some are totally wild, and for herds of blue sheep. The hidden stone lodge of Ramchaur / Ramche (4620m) is beautifully located and it will open during trekking peak season on March-May and September-November but before heading batter to ask in Cheram first. Here you can buy dry food, snakes and chocolate bars. As here is only one teahouse you cannot expect comfort accommodation and food varieties. Climb the nearby moraine wall for Yalung Glacier and mountain views and watch for snow pigeons. Some time the blue sheep came right to the kitchen that night for the salt found in urine from the ‘open toilet’ and the kitchen slops.

Day 10 : Day trip to Yalung Glacier (4500m), return to Ramche (4620m) -5 to 6 hoursToday is explore day to Yalung Glacier and Kanchanjunga South Base Camp. You do not need carry all the bag, just leave your rucksack at teahouse but take a daypack with enough drinking water, some energy bars, warm and windproof clothes for the upward leg. This is another beautiful day trip heading through a rocky loose path follows the stream and climbs up to some Mani walls (stones carved with Buddhist prayers), an easy gentle climb to a flagged cairn on a high moraine wall with views of the Yalung Glacier, Lake, Rathong (6682m) and Kabru range (7412m) and the south face of Kangchenjunga (8598m) and Jannu (7710m) quite shapeless and foreshortened but undeniably massive loom at the head of the valley. There are few well built houses here; some of them are hotels, but the owner spends so much time away that it rarely fulfils its purpose. The view is dominated by the spectacular Rathong Peak and one can see herds of blue sheep live on the cliffs above our campsite. Okhordung/ Oktan (4740m) is regarded as the base camp but the actual camp is another 2km/1hr/100m up on a track collapsing due to glacial retreat. We did not regard the extra views as worth the effort, but if you do add 2hrs to the day. Okhordung is certainly worth an hour or so soaking it up then it takes about 1hr back to Ramchaur. We retrace our steps back to our campsite at Ramche after 5 to 6 hours. As an option you may pick up your bag at Ramche and enjoy going downhill to civilization at Cheram too.

Day 11 : Trek Ramche to Tseram (3870m) or Anda phedi (3370m) -4 to 5 hoursToday, we follow our way back along the Simbua Khola to Tseram or Amda Phedi. It is not long day but next morning you need to start trip very early in the morning to the Sele la. So batter to start trip in usual time and get in teahouse for flowing days cross. You need to be prepare worm jackets, shocks, hat, torchlight, drinking water and some energy bars and pack lunch if incase tea shop is not open at Sele La.

Day 12 : Trek Tseram or Anda phedi to Ghunsa (3595m) via Mirgin la (4480m, Sinion La (4440m) and Sele la (4290m) Pass -8 to 9 hoursThis is day of adventure. Your trip will start early in the morning with pack lunch, energy bars, worm clothes, and enough drinking water. Entire trail there is less probability to get food and water, but the tea shop will remain open during the peak session. If you start late, there might be problem of strong wind while cross. You need to Pass Sele La to get Gunsa. Be sure for weather condition before start trip. If weather is not favorable, batter to wait until good weather.
There is trail from Cheram to Sele La also even it is not mention on the map. While about 2 and half hours walk two frozen tarns and one large cairn without flags appeared. Then you descend for while and traverse right, gently up and down in lovely high pasture land. From where you can see amazing views as far as Makalu and even Everest. Next an hour the trail turns left-descending to the blue lakes Anda Pokhari and further down there is a lodge, where you can refill water and have tea coffee. A short climb takes you to prayer flags and a stone heap on a distinct pass that people from Ghunsa call the Misisay La (4646m) but is write Sinelapche Bhanjyang on map after the death of a Tibetan and two yaks 1991.
The trail continue goes through ridge above, and reach the windy and prayer flag-strewn nick Mirgin La (4480m) after about 1 and half hours, you can see Mt. Jannu Makalu, long ridge of Chamlang and even a glimpse of Everest also. Then the trail drop steeply into a boulder-choked valley with underground flowing water, eventually arriving in the Selele Khola. Here is also a tea house called Selele camp / Mani Bhuk (4130m). The view from here is amazing.
The trail continues the northern traverse on a narrow rocky track to Selele La (4290m) after crossed bridge. Eventually it amperes Chorten and prayer flags named Tama La locally that mark the start of a steeper descent through old-growth rhododendrons, silver birch, silver pine and larches below towards Ghunsa (3415m).

Day 13 : Rest day Ghunsa for last day long walkingGunsa is a large clean village of traditional wooden houses set in larch and pine forest. This will be perfect rest day after last day long walk, the tea house provide hot shower, comfort accommodation and more food items. You just cleaning your clothes, wonder around the village. There is telephone service available. This is nice day walk around the village to learn about high Lander live hood and culture and belief. Stay overnight at hotel.

Day 14 : Trek Ghunsa to Kambachen (4050m) -5 to 6 hoursAfter breakfast, the trail crosses a bridge heading to Khanbachen. This is pleasant walk through rhododendron, silver pine and cedar forest. You may visit some yaks coming down loaded with potatoes. After 2-3 hours walk, you will cross the bridge and circle two big slips with significant rock fall danger and striking views of Jannu / Kumbakarna (7711m) and climb steeply. Finally cross a small stream you get into Khangpachen (4050m), where there are about 10 stone houses. This is more probability to see snow leopard around here. View from here is unbelievable. Stay overnight at tea house.

Day 15 : Trek Kambachen to Lhonak (4780m) -6 to 7 hoursThe trip starts after breakfast. At the begging trail climbs past the Chortens above Khangpachen then steadily on the true right bank with beautiful icy rocky peaks all around. The sea-buckthorn juice plant find around here, but the local are not utilize it. October is best time to harvest. Today more chances to see large flocks of blue sheep.

It batter to start early in the morning after having hot breakfast. As there is just one seasonal tea house at Pangpema, we advise you to buy pack lunch with some energy bar and reserve enough drinking water for day hike beyond Pangpema. The trail takes you deep into the mountains with glacier moraine terrace, lakes. It is incredible journey to the Kanchenjunga North Base Camp. About two-thirds of the walk, Kangchenjunga and the glacier view see. During walk, you can see Himalayan Pika (rock rabbits), a big covey of Chukar (Himalayan snow partridge), and blue sheep. There is a single hut in Pang Pema (5143m) which is open during peak season (September - mid-November and March to May). A limited number of people could sleep inside, so batter to back to Pangpema for overnight. You won’t be regret that not plans to spend a night here, although the altitude may make for a restless night. Pang Pema is generally known as the north base camp since it provides a complete view of the north face of Kangchenjunga. If you have got still energy, you may go further on failing moraine walls – probably better to spend the time climbing the rocky ridge above Pang Pema for wider and wider views. Return back your steps for a second night in Lhonak.

Day 17 : Trek Lhonak to Ghunsa (3595m) -6 to 7 hoursToday is charming walk through the full valley views and mountain scenery of the golden larches in season. You will walk same trail while acceding before to Khangpachen about 3 to 4 hours. It will be batter to having lunch here, before heading to Ghunsa, another 3-4 hours walk.

At the right side next of bridge you see a yak hut on the route to Olangchung Gola, just under Nango La (4776m). It is possible to reach the ancient village of Olangchunggola (3191m) in two days from Ghunsa. People of here were coming from Tibet more than 600 years ago. In this route there is no accommodation at this time. The trail is drop to the Phale (3140m) a Tibetan refugee village after 1 hour. This village represents ancient glimpse of authentic Tibetan culture and tradition. There are two Gompas, which is worth to see and people traditional lifestyle and carpet weaving interested.
The day trip is pleasant through the awesome river and beautiful silver pines, blue spruce, rhododendrons. After short steep climbs trail separated by a bridge bring you to Gyabla /Gyabru (2730m). Then it goes messy steep descent into thick bamboo forest, dark as night, it is most probability spot for endanger animal red pandas and black bears. The stony track goes up and down in bamboo until a small farmhouse at 1.5 hours. And followed by a steep 45mins climb and traverse on a narrow exposed track until finally Amjilosa (2308m) is sighted across a large slip. Stay overnight at tea house.

Day 19 : Trek Amjilosa to Chiruwa (1270m) -6 to 7 hoursThis is beautiful hiking day through the river bank; we need to cross the bridges many times over the Ghunsa Khola and Tamor River. Monkeys are playing cliff around the trail. Finally cross a new bridge to the true left again, pass a slip and cross again to the true right.

A long suspension bridge crosses the Tamor River which drains the valley that contains Olangchunggola and includes the Ghunsa Khola. The shortcut immediately left on leaving the bridge saves the climb through Lelep but is narrow and rough in places and climbs up to rejoin the main trail through Lelep. The cliffs across the valley can see wild honey bee hive hanging. You don’t cross the next suspension bridge below on the left but climb up to regain the track through Lelep and continue on the true right for about 1 hour. A wide stone path finally drops to a flat and beautiful walk through rice, millet and buckwheat fields interspersed with cardamom plantations. Cross to the true left at Tapethok (1380m) with a Kangchenjunga Conservation Area check post for those entering but not for those leaving the area. Then turn right, sidle the river and eventually cross a landslip of truly huge boulders. In 30 munities suddenly arrive in busy civilized Chiruwa (1270m) with pretty thatched houses. Stay overnight at teahouse.

Day 20 : Trek Chiruwa to Mitlung (920m) -4 to 5 hoursAfter breakfast your trip begins today destination. There are two different routes to the Mitlung; upper trail and lower trail through the Tamor River bank. Either way you may take, but upper trail towards Suketar will be best for the landscape view and walk through the villages. Lower track is more straightforward and the guesthouse at Mitlung is one of the best on the entire trail.
If you like to finished trip at Basantpur or Tumlingtar then you would continue south on the river bank. The trail goes south below Thiwa for 45 munities to a swing bridge and right away afterwards turn off the main trail and climb steeply for half an hour to a new tractor road. You will continue new road to the south, always looking for the shortcuts to cut off long zigzags. After 3 to 4 hours you reach at Lumbu settlement Lingkhim/ Lingkham (1460m), there is a guest house also. This is on the outside of a zigzag, so if you take shortcut trail that particular zigzag then you will miss it. Stay overnight at tea house.

Day 21 : Trek Mitlung to Suketar (2420m) -4 to 5 hoursThis is last day of your trip. Follow the tractor road and arrive in Mayam (2000m), afterwards, cross a suspension bridge below the road and, taking numerous shortcuts steeply up to avoid zigzags, reach another new road and shops on a pass. The trail of today is more confusing due to build road, in the map also not mention about new trail, so it batter to ask local for right trail. Our Guide will lead you through the right way. From here, follow the road direct to Suketar (2420m) in about two and half hours, circling and descending in the last stages. The Taplejung is also visible below ahead. There is tractor or jeep available to the Suketar but it is not reliable due to not leave currently and not good road condition with muddy and duets. There are several routes for the Kanchenjunga Trek; drive to Taplajung all the way from Kathmandu or drive Kathmandu to Hile or Basantapur. Or fly Kathmandu to Biratnagar or Bhadrapur or Suketar or Tumlingtar then ahead for trip. Rest of day you may walk around the Suketar and stay overnight at Tea house.
