Favorable time to trek
Every season is suitable for trekking to Kanchenjunga North
Base Camp but the best time gives you best experiences. So the peak seasons fortrekking to Kanchenjunga region are during the spring (March to May) and the
autum (September to November). This time provides the best scenery and the
clearest skies, but of course, you will meet many trekkers in this season than
the off season.
Similarly, it is possible to trek during the winter (December to February). In this season the temperature is low and you may feel cold. On the other hand it is also possible to trek during the monsoon (June to August), though the views are covered by clouds and there is a high chance of rainfall and landslides.

You have wide range accommodation option in the towns like Bhadrapur and Taplejung. But in the mountains the accommodation will be very basic. The room is relatively comfortable and clean in the town then mountains and remote villages. All the accommodation will be a twin-shared basis.
The standard lodge has two single bedrooms with complementary blanket and a pillow. In the mountain shower and toilet will be on sharing basis. If you do Kanchenjunga trek during the peak season there is a high chance to share the room with another group. Sometimes there is also chance to sleep in the dormitory because of the limited tea houses.We are experienced to organize Kanchenjunga trek with best accommodation and arrange the comfortable rooms according to our group size.

determination and positive attitude toward finishing and enjoying the trek
because as many of our treks lead us high into the Himalayans. Our Kanchenjunga
North Base Camp trek have one or two acclimatization days built into the
itinerary to prevent altitude sickness and let our bodies our bodies
sufficiently get used to the altitude. The level of fitness varies depends upon
