The next best alternative is to visit both Base Camp North Pangpema (5100m.) and south Yalung (4800m.) from Nepal. You require being well equipped for a high pass crossing and having a minimum of four week to spare. It is not so easy to cross pass either Lapsang La or Mirgin La. Bad weather and snow are often to blame, but more often it is sim;lu lack of time to get startint point of Kanchanjung. Either you have to fly Suketar or drive from Kathmandu to Hille Basantapur (552kms.), other option you can drive from Kahtmandu to Taplayjung via Ilam, but it is long journey. On the route, elsewhere, lodges are not. There is some in the manor village at the lowland that are primitive styled. You can trek either to the North or South Kanchnjunga Base Camp but takes luck, determination and allot of time to visit both side of the peak. Both side of upper land is particularly remote. Visit of this trek is tremendously wilderness. If you are having short time, you can fly to Suketar from Biratnagar and fly from Suketar.
