    Milke Danda Trekking (Kanchenjunga-Makalu Region) - 12 days

    After leading several Himalayan expeditions myself, including the first American ascent of Annapurna I, I can attest to Chandra’s outstanding qualities as leader and organizer. He is an especially good guide for student groups. I first met Chandra when my daughter attended 8th grade at the Lincoln School in Kathmandu, Nepal, and he was the guide selected by the expat community to lead the 8th  grade students on a week-long “Explore Nepal” trek.  The students and parents really appreciated Chandran’s thoughtful planning and leadership.
    In the last twenty years, I've enjoyed a dozen diverse adventures in Nepal with Chandra.  He always provides great food, gear, and guides as well as personalized itineraries and attention for individual travelers and small and large groups. His company is a good choice for any individual, school, group or family that wants to enjoy their own trek with a personal itinerary at a relatively low cost.
    If you might like a Nepal adventure customized to your interests, abilities, and schedule,  you can learn more at at  Himalayan Icefall Trekking or contact Chandra at himtrekzone@gmail.com.

    Milke Danda (3660m) Trekking lies in the eastern part of Nepal and it is a remote, less explored but naturally wonderful place to Trek within Kanchenjunga conservation area. Till today only a few trekkers have trekked to Milke Danda, due to less information about this wonderful place, therefore Milke Danda trek can be the best trekking destination for those who want to trek around the silent natural place. Milke Danda trek is considered to be the soft trek, best for those trekkers who can't trek to the Kanchenjunga base camp either due to their physical condition or due to lack of time. Milke danda trek offers you the taste of trekking into the Kanchenjunga and Makalu region as a whole. The view of Mount Kanchenjunga (8586m) and its range, Mount Janu (7710m), Mount Kangbachen (7903m), Mount Makalu (8481m) and its range can be best viewed from Milke Danda.
    Milke Danda lies between the Arun and Tamor valley in the long and high forest ridge. The main inhabitants are Limbus and Rai, they are the ethnical communities who have been living around this place for generations and you may get the unique opportunity to know and see their centuries-old culture, traditions, and hospitality. The best time to trek, Milke Danda, is during the March to May, where you will be amused by the beauty and variety of Rhododendron flower which covers the entire forest. It is believed that 25 different varieties of Rhododendron are found in this area. Besides, September to November is also the best season for Milke Danda trekking.
