Trip Highlights

Bokta Peak Climbing Trip (6,143m) is most challenging and adventurous trekking peak in Nepal which lies in the wild region of Mt. Kanchenjunga, third highest peak in the world. It is very rarely frequented peak and permits for climbing have only been issued since 2,002 under the authorization of Nepal Mountaineering Association. Bokto Peak Climbing is becoming popular among the trekkers as it is the great addition to Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek Trail for more adventure and fun.
The trail to Kanchenjunga region is pristine and offer wilderness that is scheduled and remotely located unlike other trekking locations in Nepal. There are three summit routes to Bokto peak – eastern, western and northern. Eastern and western routes are steep, icy and offer technically challenging trail route while the eastern flank is relatively easy with great viewing opportunity.
Climbing Bokto peak demands an avid climber with previous climbing experience as the route comprises some technical slope section. If you are seeking for relatively long trekking into remote, scheduled and wild region of Nepal adding a small portion of climbing, Bokto Peak Climbing Trip in Nepal is the perfect travel Holiday for you.

Be it the insight of an authentic culture of Sherpa, and Limbu, majestic mountain range, green vegetation rich in floral and faunal species or off-beaten trail, Bokto Peak Climbing includes all that an adventurous trail has to offer. Mountain View from summit features the panoramic view of Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586m), Nepal Peak (7,157m), Kirat Peak (7,362m), Janu or Kumbakarna Peak (7,711m) and Dormo Peak (6,850m).
