Kangchenjunga is located in the eastern  part of Nepal, which gets triple the amount of annual rainfall compared to western Nepal—these mountains on the foothills of the world’s third highest mountain get upwards of 3,500 mm of rain a year. The effect is most visible in the vegetation: thick, verdant forests with heavy undergrowth. Even at the height of the dry season, the jungle trails are moist and fresh.The rhododendron in eastern Nepal is some of the most spectacular, especially the Milke Danda range north of Taplejung which has been declared a sanctuary for Nepal’s national flower. The whole trek through the moist forests is also an orchid enthusiast’s delight. If orchids are actually parasites, then you could call the Tamur River basin a Parasite Paradise.A recommended 15-17 day trek would entail flying to Taplejung and taking the ridge route to Kangchenjunga south base camp, backtracking to Tseram and crossing over to the northern side.
