Bokta Peak trek is one of the most well-liked and excellent climbs in the Kanchenjunga region. The peak, which rises to a height of 6,143 meters in Eastern Nepal’s Taplejung district, is an attractive and little-traveled trekking peak.

Close to the third-highest mountain in the world, Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), it provides breathtaking views of majestic peaks like Nupchu (6,690 m), Kumbhakarna (7,710 m), and Pico Dhormo (6,850 m). Since Bokta Peak’s climbing permit was approved in 2002, it has become more well-liked among climbers looking for adventure. Even though there are fewer tourists, the locals are welcoming and friendly. The lifestyle in this region is influenced by Local Tibetan culture and tradition.

It takes a lot of dedication and prior peak-climbing experience to reach the summit of Bokta Peak. Several challenges must be defeated to reach the summit as the ascent to the summit is difficult. Using climbing equipment safely is another skill you need to possess.

Overall, it’s a fantastic chance to have a thrilling climbing experience. In addition, one can discover unspoiled, lush valleys, breathtaking vistas, and the hospitality of the locals. Additionally, a half-day tour of Kathmandu’s World Heritage Site is included in the peak climbing package.

Now the trail gradually climbs, passing through the lovely paddy fields and crossing the small village and beautiful villages to reach a beautiful village called Taplethook where the locals depend on farming.

Day 05 Trek from Taplethok to Amiljosha (About 7 hours)

Today, we will move toward Amiljosha leaving behind the lovely village of Taplethook, Along the trails, we must first stop at Park’s Registration Office to register.

Since the trail occasionally becomes congested and treacherous, today’s trek is challenging.

The nearby villages can be seen while you drink tea at one of the neighborhood teahouses.

Day 06 Trek from Amjilosha to Gyapla (About 7 hours)

Day 08 Trek from Ghunsa to Yak Kharka. (About 5 hours)

We need to travel away from the path where landslides occur to get to our destination for the day, Yak Kharka, so we need to be more cautious along the way. After a couple of hours of walking, we will cross a bridge at Rampuk Kharka and then we pass various beautiful villages including Khanbachen before finally arriving at Yak Kharka.

Day 09 Trek from Yak kharka to Bokta Base camp (About 6 hours)

As we set out from Yak Kharka for the base camp of Bokta Peak, we gradually climb over rocky and unstable terrain. The trails in this area are frequently snow- and ice-covered. In that case, ropes and crampons may be necessary. As our ascent can be taxing, taking breaks now and then helps to replenish energy while trekking at higher altitudes. We’ll arrive at a good camping location also known as Bokta Peak Base Camp.

Day 10 Rest and acclimatization at base camp

We have climbed a formidable height but without lack of proper rest and acclimatization might cause difficulties. So, we spend a day in Bokta Base Camp before starting our trek to let our bodies rest for the further trek.

Day 11 Summit 6114m/ 20053ft) and back to base camp (About 8 hours)

Fully acclimatized and outfitted, we set out early in the morning to reach the summit because reaching it later in the day can be difficult due to strong winds.

Our arduous climb to the summit of Bokta Peak is rewarded with magnificent views of Kanchenjunga, Kumbhakarna, Dhormo Peak, Nupchu, and some other snow-capped Himalayan ranges. After spending a short period of quality time at the summit, we will descend using the same route back to base camp.

Day 12 Bokta peak base camp to Ramche via Lapsang la Pass 5110m/16760ft (About 7 hours)

After climbing the summit, we will now descend to Ramche village through Lapsang La Pass (5110 m) which is another highlight of the trek. It also offers with mesmerizing view of the surrounding mountains including Mt. Kanchenjunga, Nupchu, and other Himalayan ranges. The trekking trails are still slippery and snowy. So, we need to be careful while descending.

Day 13 Trek to Torangdin. (6 hours)

After having a fresh morning breakfast, we will now start descending further down to Torangdin. The trails are now easier and take us through the pristine natural beauty overflowing with diverse flora and fauna.

Day 14 Trek from Torangdin to Yasang (About 6 hours)

Along the bank of the Simbuwa river, we will continue to trek downward to reach Yasang. The trails also offer with dense bamboo and rhododendron forests along with several small villages which makes the trek even more wonderful.

I have used Unique Path three times and each time the team were all helpful, friendly and informative. Every aspect of our trip to Nepal was taken care of - Pick up at the airport to take us to our hotel. Next day the excitement of getting our trekking details and depending on the trip setting out with our guide and porter. My husband and I prefer to hike on our own, so we did no group options. Our itinerary was always followed exactly. When I go hiking in Nepal this company is my first point of contact. They are a great team and are totally recommended by me and my husband.

Unique Path is a great choice for anyone who wants to explore the Himalayas. My wife and I made several treks with Unique Path to Manaslu, Kangchenjunga, Tilicho Lake, and Mustang. It goes without saying, that the scenery in Nepal is stunning. Lots of opportunity to learn about the culture and religion and traditions of Nepal. The people we met along the way were engaging and wonderful. Unique Path's staff was fantastic throughout all the trips. They were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They arranged everything from transportation to accommodation to food. They also provided all the necessary equipment and guidance and handled all the permit applications. I highly recommend Unique Path trekking to anyone who loves adventure and nature. These were once-in-a-lifetime experiences that I will never forget. I am available as a reference. David

Myself and 2 buddies hired Unique Path Trekking to coordinate an EBC trek back in 2014. We couldn't have been more happy with the results...Everything went flawlessly and we had the adventure of a lifetime. Babu and his staff / guides / porters were top-notch and I highly recommend them to anyone who may be reading this.

As with all treks, there will be unforeseen circumstances and you’re always beholden to nature. So you want a guide and an agency that is not only experienced enough but also sensitive and quick to changes on ground. I am very grateful for the deep experience that our guide, Dambar had. He made us feel safe and constantly had everything under control despite the weather and some early sickness some of us had. Coupled with his sharp wit and deep knowledge, this became such an enjoyable climb that was filled with priceless stories that I can’t wait to tell the kids about. The porters too were a lively bunch that ultimately became friends and we shared lots of fun moments on the mountain together. Babu ensured that our arrivals, arrangements and any administrative hassles were smooth and out of our minds so we could focus on the climb ahead. Thank you Unique Path trekking & expedition. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a great time while knowing you’re in safe hands!

We were very fortunate to have Unique Path Trekking for our EBC with 3 Himalaya passes expedition, we were so happy/satisfied with Unique Path trekking. Babu ( owner of Unique Path Trekking) is so kind, knowledgeable and mellow personality so does their staff ( all guides and porters ). We had great time during this expedition in terms of lodging/food. We had large group ( ~ 18 ppl ) and believe or not no one had any single complain of food. Their guides and porters are so knowledgeable, smart, humorous made our entire expedition lots of fun. They take care of us with positive attitudes with smiley face in entire trip. I definitely recommend Unique Path Trekking for any expedition in Himalaya ( we're looking forward to go with them in Annapurna expedition in near future ).

I just returned from a wonderful hike to Everest base camp with helicopter return. I was traveling solo am so grateful to Manager Babu and guide Suresh for looking after me. It is a trip I will remember the rest of my life. We started with a half day tour of Kathmandu and then flew to lukla on the next day to begin the trek. All the arrangements were made ahead of time and the folks unique path team constantly got on the phone to make sure the logistics went smoothly. Suresh kept a moderate pace and a great sense of humor. We made good time throughout the hikes and always got to the lodges on time and in daylight with energy left for the next day. The weather also cooperated this March and we had beautiful sunny skies and gorgeous Mountain View’s throughout the trek. I really could not ask for anything more and would very much recommend unique path
