Kanchangjunga Region

I just write an article for Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek Clockwise: North to South. I believe Nature is to see not to explain, but I wrote for trekkers or travelers so that it will help them. You can find many websites if you search in Google or any search engine.
Your trip starts after you land in the Kathmandu Valley airport, it is the only international Airport in Nepal. You can also start trekking from Indian side (more suggestion). But you must finish all documentation or government procedure. After completing the government procedure, trekker will fly to Bhadrapur in 45 minutes (possible by land too). If the weather is good you will view Everest, Lhostse, Makalu and Kanchenjunga. After you land to Bhadrapur you need a vehicle, according your group which takes 45 minutes to 1 hours to reach Birtamod. It's located in the Terai belt (lower part of Nepal)You will experience hot temperature in summer and cold in winter. It is the central placement of local people. Your journey will be stopped today and please look your hotels. (I will write later about it later) and over night at Birtamod.

The culture and sound of morning will wake you up in the morning: people in rush find their destination. You must plan vehicle for your today journey to Taplejung. Today journey will take long hours around 8 to 9 hours: pass through hills and fields. It will be long and tiring journey to Taplejung. Your overnight will be at Taplejung. Tomorrow will be your great day: because your pure trek will start from tomorrow, so get ready to ramble. ( be continue.
