Subject: The Long Route to Kanchenjunga
Please join us to enjoy the experience of a Himalayan Odyssey as Margaret takes us from the tea gardens of West Bengal, north to Darjeeling, trekking the ridge between Sikkim and Nepal. where we will delight in a rich forest of Rhododendron, Arisaema and Orchids, before emerging onto open grazing, carpeted with Primula. After 5 days trekking through wonderful landscapes, we turn east over ridges and through valleys to the base of Kanchenjunga, [ The world’s 3rd highest mountain  – 8586M ] eventually turning north into the mountain to delight in its deservedly renowned rich variety alpine flora.”
