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 by 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.
