  • Other Benefits (On Arrival)
    Description :
    Amazing though it may seem, this whole glory can be savored on a single trek through West Sikkim. Hugging the razor edged Singalila Ridge, the Himalayan divide between India and Nepal, this much-talked about trek to Goecha La, gets the best of West Sikkim etched indelibly on adventurous minds.

    From the trail head at Yuksom, the erstwhile capital of Sikkim in the velvet green of 5,800 feet, to the high point of Goecha La at 4940 m, the trek passes through thickly forested ridges crowded with rich flora to the heights above the tree line, finally culminating at the breathtaking snowy heights of the Kanchenjunga National Park.

    An unforgettable panorama of jagged snow peaks cutting across in an arc of 270 degrees through the azure sky. The landscape is incidental. It is the trekker who changes. This is indeed one of the most spectacular treks in the entire Indian Himalayas.
