To capture the panorama of the Kanchenjunga range from a stone's throw distance, the Dzongri and Goecha La trek from Yuksom is the perfect pick. The journey allows you to travel across the gorgeous alpine forest that melds with the vast biosphere of Sikkim. All throughout the trail you can get acquainted with varied species of wildflowers and avifauna and animals spread across different altitudes. The trail follows through the vast forest of rhododendrons with downhill and uphill treks through narrow ridges, and rough tracks. The Dzongri and Goecha La trek is no doubt one of the best treks in the Indian Himalayan region, thus mentioned in the diaries of every trekker. The moderate to strenuous trip further fascinates the trekker with several monasteries tucked in the mountains. Steeped in history, these monasteries dilate a diorama of the footsteps of Buddhism in Sikkim and also exhibit the cultural essence of the Lepchas, Bhutias, and Nepalis.

The whole trip worked very well. Details of the offer very clear with accommodation options spelt out clearly when booking Booking Fairly straightforward, payment secure. Good swift response to emails, particularly when flight times were changed by the airline. Experience of travelling with Sure Trip India has been very satisfactory. They have faithfully stuck to the schedule that was planned prior to the tour. Hotel check-ins were smooth and arrangements were as per our brief. Mr.Jaswinder Singh from the STI was extremely responsive to every single mail and telephone call.Mr Jaswinder Singh was more than just a tour companion, in fact he became part of the family for the entire length of the tour. If you are a family travelling with ladies and children then TMI is a trustworthy option to look into.
