Kanchenjunga – © Jamie McGuiness

Mt. Kanchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world at the Nepal and Sikkim border. The route is remote, unspoiled and offers one of the most majestic views of the surrounding peaks.

The Kanchenjunga trail running race has a mixture of levels. The Ultra-Marathon trail competition starts from Phunlin Bazaar (alt. 1824 m.). The Marathon race route follows the Limbu cultural trail up to Pathibhara (alt. 3794 m.) and turns back to the start point covering 49 kms distance.

The race is organised by Caroline Cuif-Letrange of Reach Summit. See http://www.reachsummit.com/welcome/marathon-trail-running-race-kanchenjunga for more information.
