Khangchendzonga Trek-a must visit

Among the Sikkim’s Treks, most popular trek is the foot of Mt. Kangchenjunga, the 3rd highest peak in the world.Though the view of Kanchandzonga chains is enjoyed from various viewpoints, but the most beautiful view to these mountains is from Dzongri & Gochila (4800m).The panoramic views of the peaks and Himalayan ranges will rejuvenate you both physically as well as mentally. In this trek, we will hear nothing but the whistle of the wind, soothing sound of brooks flowing down the hills, songs of birds in different tunes, shrilling crickets & sometimes, the whistling “Lepchas” or Tibetan yak herder.

This trek starts from Yoksum to Goecha La Pass, at 5000m. A lush countryside of subtropical forests, rhododendron forests, alpine meadows where the Yaks graze in high valleys surrounded by glaciers and snow capped peaks of the Khangchendzonga range.

Kanchandzonga trek is one of the perfect trekking landscapes in India. This trek starts from Bagdogra to Goecha La. The best season is April-June & the October-December period. Trek ends at Phuentsoling in Bhutan or at Bhadrapur airport in Nepal. Glaciers and snow capped peaks of the Khangchendzonga range overlooking the pristine Himalayan environment. It is the homeland of three different tribes, namely the indigenous Lephcas, Nepalese & Bhutias.
