Seasons: March to May and October to November. Monsoon is too wet (and there may well be no view) and winter is too cold.Centres: Access is through Kathmandu, then flight to Biratnagar and bus to the roadhead at Basantpur, or bus the whole way (1-2 days).Difficulty: Mainly acclimatisation, but trekking here is far from the facilities of the Khumbu and Annapurna regions and the going is much rougher. At present, Maoists might be a concern.Must See: Has been described as The Most Beautiful Walk in the World. The views and the Nepali people and culture. Not the loos.

Further Reading At 28,169ft (8586m) Kangchenjunga in far north-eastern Nepal is the world''s third highest peak. It''s a huge, spectacular mountain with five tops and five glaciers dominating a spur from the main Himalayan axis. The trek to its base via the Nepalese foothills has been described quite simply as The Most Beautiful Walk in the World.

This book is a guide to that trek. It describes the trails, villages and views, gives a potted history of some of the mountains, and adds background interest for anyone planning to visit the area. It''s a sparsely populated region with a greater sense of isolation than in the more popular areas of Nepal. The trails are rougher, the facilities more primitive and the routes less well defined, offering a different kind of experience to that of the more mainstream routes and with the undisputed scenic grandeur for which Nepal is famous.

The author describes three possible approach routes and two link routes, with two main destinations, both in spectacular locations.
