My first Vietnam Travel adventure | Rasha Yousif

My first Vietnam Travel adventure | Rasha Yousif | Trekking | Scoop.it


I took 2 dare decisions last October. First I decided to travel to Vietnam solo and second I ditched my Canon DSLR to travel only with Fujifilm cameras x100s and X-E1. The actual planning of the trip started couple of months back. I was a bit confused where to start the trip south or north of Vietnam and whether to include the middle part of Vietnam. The thing about Vietnam is that everything is possible. Airlines were available and my options were wide open. After some serious research I decided to stick to the north for this trip and leave the other parts for another trip (yes there will be other trips!).  Hanoi, Lao Cai (Sapa & BacHa) and Halong Bay were the areas I visited in this 10 days adventure......

Located towards the north-east of Nepal, Kanchenjunga region is one of the unblemished vicinity encompassing you through fascinating villages, rugged trails and alluring forest in the Kanchenjunga Conservation area; Nepal’s third conservation area established in March 1997 A.D. covers an area of 2,035 square kilometers dwells the two soaring peaks of Mt. Kanchenjunga.
Dominated by the world’s third highest mountain Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586m), Kanchenjunga region is named after this mighty Himalaya. As five soaring peaks makes Mt. Kanchenjunga, this might is also called as “Five treasures of snow”. Comprised of rugged topography, pastures, alluring forest enriched in exotic flora and fauna, rivers, high altitude lakes, and medieval settlements, Kanchenjunga region is spontaneously untamed. The lush forest of Kanchenjunga Conservation Area abides peculiar mammal species including snow leopard, Asian black bear, red panda, and leopard cat whereas it dwells more than 250 bird species inclusive of snow cock, blood pheasant and red-billed chough. The domain is equally rich in flora as we can find 26 types of Orchid and 26 types of rhododendron inside this area. The native inhabitants of Kanchenjunga are Limbu, Sherpa, and Tamang who still practices their medieval traditions. Kanchenjunga region is one of the most unblemished and immaculate remote region of Nepal that offers astonishing trekking areas around the globe.
Trekking to this pristine vicinity begins from 1,200m to 5,180m above sea level. This fascinating trip to the humongous Mt. Kanchenjunga is once in a lifetime experience. The features of the trip to Kanchenjunga region are an encounter of Eastern Nepal’s abundant natural beauty, exploration of the charming village, insight to Sherpa culture and lifestyle, and the experience of warm hospitality by native inhabitants, breathtaking views of Mt. Kanchenjunga and off the beaten trekking trails. The trip to this pristine vicinity can be conducted throughout the year, however; autumn and spring are considered to be the best season.
Kanchenjunga Trekking is an adventurous journey into the remote Himalaya of far eastern Nepal. This trek offers the incredible opportunity to see four of the world’s top five highest peaks! Beyond the spectacular mountain views, the wonderful ascent up to the highlands will be unforgettable. The Kanchenjunga Trekking trail passes through culturally rich and naturally beautiful landscape.
Kanchenjunga Trekking journey takes trekkers off the beaten path. Although the area was opened in 1988 to tourism it has seen relatively few trekkers. The journey offers cultural interaction and insights that cannot be found on the busier and more commercialized routes. The Kanchenjunga Trekking path travels through serene forests and isolated territory. In fact, visitors to the Kanchengjunga region will mostly have the remote trails to themselves! The natural beauty and peaceful setting in the faraway eastern Himalaya can give you an overwhelming sense of being truly away from your cares and concerns.
The main attraction of this trek is Kanchenjunga (8586 m, 28,208 ft). This soaring peak is the world’s third highest. The Kanchengjunga Trek offers up close views this breathtaking mountain. Along the way, views of Everest, Lhotse and Makalu can be enjoyed (first, fourth and fifth highest mountains in the world).
This Kanchenjunga Trekking passes through the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area and adjoins the border with Sikkim, India to the east. The region is populated with Rai and Limbu ethnicities, with unique languages and customary costumes and lifestyle. This area is also home to rare and exotic wildlife including the snow leopard, Himalayan black bear, musk deer, red panda and many species of birds. The biodiversity of flora and fauna will be a highlight. The spectacular mountains, rugged terrain, beautiful landscapes and welcoming people will leave you with a feeling of being far from the world’s troubles and cares!
The Kanchenjunga trekking journey to the east begins with a scenic flight or drive to Suketar, Taplejung. The hiking begins and the route ascends through majestic territory. As the trails climb we get closer and closer views of the magnificent Himalaya. The route reaches a climax and then makes a circuit back to our starting point with are turn flight/drive back to Kathmandu.
The Kancengjunga Trek is a camping journey. High Camp Adventure will arrange a crew of porters to transport provisions and gear, including food and a dining tent, tables, chairs, a toilet tent and personal sleeping tents. Our skilled chef will provide the day’s meals and in the evening we will enjoy a magnificent camp under the stars, surrounded by the Himalaya and jaw-dropping surroundings while we enjoy a supper and a warm drink.
There is a lot to explore in the Kanchenjunga region and we look forward to guiding you to the highlights.
