Boktoh Peak Climbing (6,114m/20,060ft.) - 29 days

Boktoh Peak (6114m/20,060ft)  is located in one of the more remote areas of the Kanchenjungha South base camp. Boktoh trekking peak become famous in the spring of 1991 when a Slovenian expedition team climbed it as an acclimatization peak before attempting Kanchenjunga from its South East Ridge. The trekking trail to Kanchenjunga South base camp is one of the most spectacular trails that Nepal has to offer. It is a perfect objective for mountaineers looking for a challenging 6000m peak. It is suitable for those climbers who have previous 6000m climbing experience, several high passes and British hill experience. The peak is rarely climbed and permits have only been issued for climbs since 2002 under the authorization of the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). Before then the peak was issued permits under the Department of Tourism. This route was opened to trekkers in 1988, though people have trekked in the area on mountaineering expeditions since the turn of the century.

The semi-technical nature of Boktoh also known as Bokta to the locals is a deceivingly complex peak that calls for skills in route finding. The Boktoh trekking route is shared with the approach to the wild Mt. Kanchenjunga. Continuing on the caravan trail past Bokta peak would bring you to Kanchenjunga’s South base camp. The Kanchenjunga region is quite special, it is more remote so it has fewer trekkers that pass through. Bokta climbing offers fantastic views of the Himalayas, from the summit you can see: Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586m/28,169ft), Kumbhakarna (7710m/25,595ft) Dhormo Peak (6850m/22,473ft).

Your journey starts with a flight to Bhadrapur followed bya drive to Phidim. The trekking takes you through several wild and remote villages such as: Khamdembe, Yamphudin, Tarading, Ramche and Octang. After you’re successful and enjoyable trip you will return to Taplejung and take a flight to Kathmandu or drive to Bhadrapur and then take a flight to Kathmandu.

How to Book?

How to book holiday trip in Nepal?

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal.  Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries).  Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.

On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information.  Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.

To conform and process your trip booking please follow these suggestions:

Please kindly submit Trip Booking Form when you confirm the trip with us. It will be easy for us to process for your trip conformation and prepare all legal processes and permit for the trip. If you have any query, always feel free to contact us at any time.  We always want to make sure our clients are well informed before conforming the trip. You are always advised to visit our website and related package for further information.
