Day 1 : Uttarey (2,320m) to Chiwabhanzyang (3,100m); 6-7 hrs. trek :
We thread our way up and over the highest reaches of the Singalila Ridge, which forms the border between Sikkim and Nepal. We may meet the occasional Yak herders but they are well beyond permanent settlement. We pass through a rich forest cover, swathes of Rhodendron, open ridges, sacred lakes and remote passes. Our first day takes us to Chiwabhazyang. Acclimatization here is a must for further ascending trekkers. Overnight stay in tent.
Day 2 : Trek Excursion – 5 ½ hrs :
This is an attractive setting to acquire some essential early acclimatization. A hike to the nearby Singalila peak – Phoktey Dara (3,618m) over the border to Nepal and West Bengal i.e. tri- junction area of Sikkim, Nepal and West Bengal will give us valuable accomodisation and 360 degree view of Annapurna Range including Mt. Everest, Makalu, Nuptse and towering view of massive Kanchendzonga range.
Day 3 : Chiwabhanzyang (3,100m) to Dhoor (3,800m); 6-7 hrs. trek :
A gentle uphill traverse through forests and then over a more exposed hill side brings us to prayer flags adorning our first pass and views of distant mountains – a taste of what is to come.
Day 4 : Dhoor (3,800m) to Meghuthang (3,900m); 6-7 hrs.trek
Rising just before dawn, a five minutes' walk unto the ridge may reveal the spectacular sight of sunrise on both Everest and Kanchendzonga. Throughout the day we descend and climb, maintaining a steady height, spiralling from one side of the ridge to the other until a rough steep ascent takes us across a pass. Beyond, the trail winds its way steadily through Rhododendrons and past several Hindu shrines where a second easier pass drops down to our camp close to a Shepherd's summer settlement.
Day 5 : Meguthaang (3,900m) to Lampokhori (4,300m); 6-7 hrs. trek
We walk easily on a good trail through woods until we began a steady rise of a broad valley where we catch our first closer view of the entire Kabru Range dominated by Mt. Pandim (6,691m).
Day 6 : Lampokhori (4,300m) to Gomathang (3,800m); 6-7 hrs. trek
Now we are in high mountain country and the forests lie far below. A little snow underfoot can be expected as we climb to our first pass, the Danphey Bhir La at 4,530m, the Pass of the Pheasant. From here it is possible to see the whole of Sikkim with the view stretching out well into Tibet and Bhutan.
Day 7 : Gomathang (3,800m) to Tyabla/Tikep Chu (3,700m); 6-7 hrs. trek
out for a brightly coloured Danphey birds (Impeyan Pheasant), which nest in the high crags around the Kamsey La, 4,200m. As we drop down into the meadows of Kokling, we are already looking up at our next pass of 4,300m. , that we reach with a steady ascent of a steep crag to a skyline dominated by the dizzying pinnacles and icy cliffs of Kanchendzonga. Once again we end the day's hike with a steep descent to our camp-site by the Tikep Chu, which has its source high on the Rathong Mountain (6,679m).
Day 8 : Tyabla/ Tikep Chu (3,700m) to Dzongri (4,300m); 6-7 hrs. trek:
Today our route joins the regular trail up to the Goecha La. A steady climb through and ancient fir forests, juniper and rhododendrons gradually opens out the summer pastures of Dzongri. Another high camp but we should be well acclimatized by now probably in contrast to some of the trekkers we meet who could be on day three of their Dzongri trek at 4,300m. A walk to Dafla Khang (Dzongri top) in the wee hours of the morning provides one of the most magnificent views of the mountains and the whole range of the peaks can be seen. Acclimization here is a must for further ascending trekkers. Overnight stay at camp.
Day 9 : Dzongri (4,300m) to Thangsing (3,930m); 4-5 hrs. trek :
Trek from Dzongri to Thangsing takes about approximately 4-5 hours after walking through the bushes and hedges. At first, walking in the plane table land after few hours, we rapidly descent down the river Prek on. The way one can view almost all the ranges above all Mt. Pandim looks beautiful. In Thangsing besides, the Govt. huts is all barren, here is no civilization. Overnight stay at camp.
Day 10 : Thangsing(3,930m) to Lamuney (Samitti Lake) (4,200m); 3-4 hrs. trek
Trek from Thangsing to Lamuney takes about approximately 3-4 hours it is just an easy trek through thin vegetation. Overnight stay in a tent. Samitti is basically, in the base of Mt. Pandim because of its close attachment with Mt. Pandim, here a small beautiful lake has emerged.When it gets snowed, the lake with the mountain provides a spectacular unforgettable view. Overnight in tent.
Day 11 : Lamuney (4,200m) to Goecha La (4,900m) and back to Samitti; 6-7 hrs. trek :
Trek from Samiti to Goecha La, back to Samitti takes about 6-7 hours. The trek starts with easy grading. We come across Zemathang which means (sand-plain land). The trail goes through moraines before reaching Goecha La, one can view Green Lake formed right below the path deep down the hill, finally one reaches the second view point from here one can view southern face of majestic Kanchendzonga. Further trek takes you to Yangi Tar to spend one night in this place is worthwhile one can witness. Avalanche of Mt. Kanchendzonga this place is recommendable because it is quite different than other entire trek, but during winter it is not possible due to thick snow which covers the path and makes it difficult to walk.
Day 12 : Samitti (4,200m) to Tshoka (3,050m); 6-7 hrs. trek :
Start retracing steps towards Thangsing will take about couple of hours or so. From Thangsing / Lamuney follow the trail to Kokchurung (3,800m) which is a good camping site. Continue descending towards Tshoka by going through a bye pass route directly to Tshoka. Overnight stay at camp
