About us

Meet the team behind this www.kanchenjungatrek.com

The initial idea was to provide free and independent information necessary for this trek. Later with high volume of queries we decided to start operating the trek. Starting from March 2015, we had already operated more than 30 different trekking groups. You can check the trek report. Many changes were made, after discussing with the guides, itinerary were redesigned. Also trek map was updated with the new exit route from Khebang in Kanchenjunga south.

We like to thank the himalayan map house for the online version of Kanchenjunga trek map. Also, huge thanks to all those trekkers who trekked with us, being a part of Kanchenjunga trek family. Mark Tregellas from Australia is now a core team of our trek blog. He revamped entire articles, making it easier to read for native speakers.
