There is available local bus also but, it takes many hours with crowed of people, so batter to take private Jeep. Stay overnight at Taplejung.

Day 04 : Trek Taplejung to Mitlung (921m) – 4 to 5 hoursThis is your first day of the trip. After having breakfast the trip start from Taplejung Bazaar and get in Suketar (2420m) after half an hour. Then, heading to Asahangpani, Hangdewa and finally gate in Mitlung (921m) after 4 to 5 hours walking. This is pocket area of Alaichi (Cardamom); often you meet people carrying cardamom to the market. The trail goes through a horror stretch of jungle with falling rock, the track scarcely visible in the tall grasses. It is many ups and down and sometimes muddy through the cardamom plantations, finally it emerging into rice paddies after 2 hours. Now trail descend and climb steeply to a welcome house and from here it is about 30 mutinies to get in Mitlung (921m). Just before the village join a broad trail and turn left. The track from the right comes down from Taplejung. You will have good sleep sound of Tamor River at Mitlung, the tea house are much more comfortable.

At the begging you will follow road for 30 munities then climb on steps over a bluff for 75 munities, and down to busy Sinwa (1055m), there are few lodges as well. From here, you will walk about 3 hours through the isolated farmhouse with views down the wild Tamor valley. After lunch you will continue trip, at first up and down and again up and down (like hide and seek) heading for the obvious right hand skyline ridge, at the base of which lies the pretty thatched village set in a huge rock fall of Thiwa /Chirwa/Chiruwa (1200m), after 1.5hrs. 45mins before Thiwa is a swing bridge from whose southern end a track climbs to Lingkhim (1466m) and thence to Suketar (2420m) if you choose to exit this way. Stay overnight at tea house.

Day 06 : Trek Thiwa to Amjilosa (2400m) – 4 to 5 hoursToday, most of the trail is up and down through the river bank and often need to cross the Suspension bridge. At the begging the trail goes lower river track for 15 munities and after 1 hour walk cross a wooden bridge on a side stream, then after another 1 hour you will cross the bridge at Tamor Nadi, and to the true right you get at Tapethok / Taplethok (1322m). Here is tourist check post, the Guide will entry your permit details. Then the trail goes through the cardamom plantation and charming villages. Now you need to ascend into Lelep (1650m), this is headquarters for the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area Project (KCAP). After lunch at Lelep, you will continue the trip through the houses and take the middle path in a bamboo grove to drop about 160 meters and cross the bridge on Tamor Nadi. The Sekathum (1650m) village left from here but it is not visible and the remote Tibetan village of Olangchunggola (Walungchungkhola) is beyond valley. Here are several lodges for lunch or overnight stay.
Now the trail follows the Ghunsa Khola, draining from the Kangchenjunga and Kumbhakarna (Jannu) glaciers, this is major tributary of the Tamor Nadi. The trail makes you bit confuse here. You need turn right onto a rough riverside track just after the hotel and after 15 munities get wooden bridge but you don’t cross it, another 10 munities later cross the metal swing bridge to the true left then 10 munities later cross back to the true right. After 15 munities walk cross the bridge and climb up, still on flagstones, past bluffs, you have more chances to see musk deer on the area. After 1 hour, cross to the true left you might see monkeys on the true right above the bridge. There’s another 1 hour up and down including some exciting riverside trails and informal bridges before the last bridge of the day crosses to the true right and climbs steeply for 400 meters for one hour, traversing right over several ridges to Amjilosa (2400m). You will stay overnight at tea house.

Day 07 : Trek Amjilosa to Ghunsa (3415m) – 6 to 7 hoursThis is a day of waterfalls, you will crossed many of them entire trail. At the begging of day trip, the trail goes through the huge edge slip with some exposure and climbs further to round a bluff, and then descends up and down across rock falls set in dense bamboo to arrive at a teahouse after 1.5 hours. This most probability area for the red panda, look around the way. After one hour you will cross a wooden bridge near the third waterfall, next 20 munities crossed another wooden bridge and then come fourth waterfall then climb steeply for 30 munities in a nasty wet gully to the Gyabla (2725m). This is right place to have lunch.
The trail drops to the roaring river by cliffs and continues up and down through the rock. You may sight of black bears around here. About 2 hours walk arrive at a pleasant sandy beach then climb, cross a slip then an extensive slip and exit at the top of a third slip onto a terrace of yak pastures. This is a very pleasant walk through juniper and rhododendrons forest. You will get Tibetan refugee village Phale (3125m) in 1 hour. Phale is winter settlement for the Ghunsa people. From here it is about another an hour to get Ghunsa. Ghunsa is similar like ancient Tibetan village, more than 600 years ago they are shift from Tibet. So, the culture and tradition still remain unique. Phones service is available here, as well as reliable hydroelectricity and several well-stocked shops. The accommodation of here is best in Ghunsa. Stay overnight at tea house.

Day 08 : 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/Khambachen (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 09 : Acclimatization or Explore Day at Khambachen - visit Jannu View Point (4,400m) -5 to 6 hoursThis is your acclimatization day or rest day at khambache. Khambechen itself beautiful place wondering around with magnificent scenery. But it would be best to hike to the Jannu View Point/ Kumbhakarna View point situated at 4,400 meters. Top of the view point you can see mighty view of Khumbhakarna/Jannu (7,711m) and Mt. Ghabur Peak/Temachunggi (6,044m), Phile (6,645m), Sobi Thongie (6,670m), Mera Peak (6,364m) and amazing Jannu Glacier itself. Walk back to tea house for overnight.

Day 10 : 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. The walk is enjoyable with mountains view and glacier. Finally you cross the bridge and then a sandy plain comes with scattered huts of Lhonak (4792m). You will spend overnight at tea house.

Day 11 : Day trip Lhonak to Pangpema (5,143m) / Kanchenjunga North BC (5388m) back to Lhonak -7 to 8 hours This is final day for your destination. 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 can visit most popular trekking Pek Drohmo Ri (5,958m) from Pangpema (5,143m), from where you have breathtaking view including north face of Kanchenjunga and other snow-capped mountains view. 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 12 : 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. While descending, the trail might be muddy and slippery; your knees might be hurt, so using trekking pools will support you. Finally, you retrace in Ghunsa for overnight stay. You may share your experience with people who are coming through the Sele La or Lumbasumba.

Day 13 : Trek Ghunsa to Sele La Camp (4130m) via Sele La Pass (4,290m) – 3 to 4 hoursMost of the trekkers make one camp Ghunsa to Cheram, but it is quite long day walk at high elevation. Now days you can spend night at Sele La Camp in Teahouse too. But it is very basic tea house amenities with limit bed capacity and open only trekking peak season. Our Guide will make confirm about tea house remain open or not. Then make decision either for long camp or break in two parts. Mostly the trail is ascending with amazing mountains scenery and rock. Eventually you will get in tea house at Sele la after 3 to 4 hours walk.

Day 14 : Trek Sele La Camp to Cheram (3,870m) via Sinion La (4,440m), Mirgin La (4,480m) & Sinelapche Bhanjyang (4,646m) -4 to 5 hoursToday you need to cross three passes; Sinion La (4,440m), Mirgin La (4,480m) & Sinelapche Bhanjyang (4,646m) to get in Cheram/Tseram. But it is that much difficult pass if weather is good. You already crossed one pass at previous day, then we will continue towards the next pass today. The views of Jannu from here are as good as any available, together with Makalu, the long ridge of Chamlang and even a glimpse of Everest. You will get in Cheram after 4 to 5 hours walking. Stay overnight at tea house.

Day 15 : Trek Tseram 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 16 : Day trip to Yalung Glacier (4500m), return to Ramche (4620m) -5 to 6 hoursToday is explore day to Yalung Glkacier 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 17 : Trek Ramche to Lamite Bhanjyang (3310m)-6 to 7 hoursToday, we follow our way back along the Simbua Khola (days 6 and 7 in opposite direction) to Lamite Bhanjyang. There is a pond at 3310 meters nearby teahouse, is a nice place for overnight stay, although there might be a water shortage sometimes. After while walk there is a beflagged Buddhist and be-trident Hindu shrine with a snake shape in the rock, from to north is prohibited on the killing animals. After another 40mins there is a new basic lodge at Anda Phedi, it will remain open during trekking season. From Amda Phedi the trail descending gently to the Tortong. This is one of the most beautiful walks, often you heard the changing sounds of the river, and a huge range of rhododendrons giving way to moss-hung forests with huge pines and larches, all mixed with various broadleaf turning with autumn is all very restful. In warm sun with a breeze there are few better places to be. Be careful of grazing yaks, some time they are aggressive. Stay overnight at tea house.

Day 18 : Trek Lamite Bhanjyang to Yamphudin (2090m) - 5 to 6 hoursToday is long descent. After a 1220 meter descent, today brings us back to the more inhabited and familiar area of Yamphudin. At the begging you cross the Simbuwa Khola and climb through old forest for an hour then start a steep climb for one and half hours with zigzags yak damage track. The trail is unstable slip to the right that needs to be climbed 150m above before a bypass drops to the grassy Lasiya Bhanjyang. Trail ascends through silver pines up the hill behind the Bhatti and distant blue hills view of Mt Jannu / Kumbhakarna (7711m) to the northeast. The trail improves below as the yaks are taken another way, but the descending stepped track is endless until Amji Khola. While walking about 1 hour you cross the open Kharka of Chitre (2926m) then in 20 munities there is a wooden seat Chautaara (resting place) at an important junction. Finally you get in Yamphudin, where mostly Sherpa people live here. So, it called Sherpagaon also. But it does not mention on most maps and is sometimes called upper Yamphudin. Yamphudin (2090m) is 300m below and has several comfortable lodges. There is a TIMS and permit check post.

Day 19 : Trek Yamphudin to Phumphe (1860m)-5 to 6 hoursAfter having breakfast we follow the Kabeli Khola River back to Phumphe village, retracing our steps of days 3 and 4. The trail for today is much more adventures. It goes crossing a grassy cliff at length with an exposed narrow trail where a miss-step would be fatal. If you are concern about, it is possible to follow the main trail from Yamphudin. Climb up past the village; trail goes on a paddy trail to start a day of high traverses and dropping in and out of sharp valleys with waterfalls. Mostly walk through the forest and houses can see occasionally. A feature of the morning is a high, well-built but narrow track across a bare grassy and very steep face for an hour. We walk by pretty and neat Limbu village of Mamanke (1780m) which we reached after one and half hour.

Day 21 : Trek Simbu to Taplejung (1870) via 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.
