In May 2016 I did the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek from North to South. Many people still argue about whether to do the circuit north to south or vice versa. Well, if you ask me, I would say north to south with four reasons to support my recommendation. See why north to south. Also, you can check the details of my trek here.

A day before crossing the pass the weather was very bad but my team and I stuck to our plan and eventually crossed the Sele Le Pass while it was foggy and snowy.

I was carrying an inReach Explorer with me, which is iridium connected. It works worldwide wirelessly. Handy! I requested for the weather forecast while I was in Ghunsa. On the basis of the GPS location of the device, it provides any information requested. Here is the weather report of 72 hours while we were crossing the Sele Le Pass.
