     The Kanchanjunga area in the eastern part of Nepal was closed until 1988 for trekking purpose, but lately it has been opened. Exploring these mountains and villages both towards the Kahchanjunga and Makalu base camp has a great potential. This vast and wonderful alpine area can be reached by a daily flight to Bhadrapur and a drive to Ilam. The Kanchanjunga massif with its numerous glacier systems, high pass crossing and vast untracked foothills offer the opportunity for almost endless exploration. The trek is the best in early autumn or late spring.The ascent from Phrombo through terraced fields and hododendron forest to the high passes. Then the router leads to the 3484m pass at Lashi from Taplejung villages towards the remarkable view point, Khumbakarna and Kabru (7310m), just a short distance away across the constant companions when they cross several passes to Gunsa village and descend the valley and take a trail back to Suketar and fly out to Bhadrapur then again fly to Kathmandu.
