Exploring the Himalaya Since 1990

Bokta Peak Climbing (29 days)

Bokta Peak is a 6143m tall trekking peak located in Kanchedzonga region of Taplejung district. It is one of the easiest climbing trekking peaks in the region. Anyone wishing to experience climbing in the Himalayas will have the best and exhilarating experience climbing Bokta.

The journey will be a mixture of trekking and climbing, a total of 29/30 days adventure. Crossing the Lapsang la pass (4500m), one of the highest passes in the Himalayas, will be a challenge well worth undertaking. The base Camp is set up at 5000m. The approach to the summit involves walking through a wide path of glaciers that traverses directly down from the top. Rock and snow forms the major bulk of the mountain.

The area is inhabited by Kirat people, namely Rai and Limbu. Their traditional culture and hospitality will be part of the overall trekking experience along with pristine wildnerness and rare wildlife. The trek passes through Kanchendzonga Conservation Area, a well established protected area, that is home to wild animals such as snow leopard, snow cock, blood pheasant, red panda, rhododendron, orchids, etc.

The best seasons for climbing the Bokta peak are either Spring (March, April, May) or Autumn (September, October, November). Our experienced climbing Sherpas and porters will provide you full assistance and support on your attempt for Bokta.
