Mt. Bokta

Mt. Bokta

Days from

 Mt. Bokta is situated in the beautiful region of Kanchenjunga and is hardly climbed. The journey during this trip passes through the most diverse and scenic regions– from Nepal’s low land to the third highest mountain in the world – in the Kanchenjunga regions. This challenging peak can be climbed by serious mountaineers in good conditions. Bokta’s first ascent was by a Slovenian team in 1991.

Of all the world's great peaks Kanchenjunga is perhaps the least known; the third highest in the world at 8,598m, it sits astride the Nepal/Sikkim border only a few miles from Tibet. This route was opened to the trekkers in 1988 and is a long way from. Mt. Bokta is situated within the Kanchenjunga saddle and is hardly climbed by mainstream climbers. The journey to Mt. Bokta in the extreme east of Nepal passed through diverse topography including the country’s low land what is usually know as Terai and traverses through beautifully cultivated rolling mid hills populated by various tribal groups including the Rai and the Limbus. The entire journey passed through some of the most finely high mountain scenery anywhere.

Bokta (6,143 m) is an intimidating peak in the Kanchenjunga region in Eastern Nepal. The west side of the mountain is steep and technical.  The eastern side has no straightforward route either. The most promising route is via the col to the north of the mountain. From a high camp at the col, the route follows the snow slope from under the right shoulder to the summit. While the slope is moderately steep, there route suffers danger from rock fall.

Until very recently this was a restricted area, so this is an ideal trek for those who wish to venture into the rather virgin areas of Nepal and away from the better known areas and visit a remote part where few foreigners have ventured.

We fly from Kathmandu to Biratnagar and transfer to Basantapur the same day. The trek begins with our first camp at Chauki then trek through Gyabla, and ascends to the higher camp at Pang Pema (5120m) and camp at Lhonak. The trek concludes at Suketar via the descent from Omje Khola, from where we fly back to Kathmandu.
