Day 06: Trek from Sekathum to Amjilosa
Elevation of Sekathum – 1576 m | 5169 ft
Elevation of Amjilosa – 2308 m | 7570 ft
It’s a challenging trail from Sekathum to Amjilosa. We just cross one suspension bridge next to Sekathum and immediately enter into dense forest ascending the steep trail. Trail turn into descending nature and lead to another river that we need to cross again via another bridge. We will hike up all the way to Solima Village and descend again to river level on next side of village. It eventually turns out to be a long day with almost 7 Hr walking. Especially during the walk that passes through gorge it is highly recommend being careful. After descending down from Solima Village we again need to follow some tricky trail that consist of other uphill and downhill section all the way up to village of Amjilosa. We are now on border ridge of upper and lower part of Kanchenjunga Region as onward from Amjilosa we can feel different on lots of factor like housing, surrounding, peoples and other. Ghunsa that is like headquarter of Kanchenjunga North is now just a camp away. Not only that we will spend one extra day on Ghunsa for acclimatization.
