Sandakphu Trek

Darjeeling has one of the most spectacular treks to offer along with the beauty of the hills. The charms of the Himalayan Treks along with its mysteries gradually unfold as trekkers traverse through the dense forests and verdant landscape, through miles of green-carpeted meadows and sleepy hamlets lost in time. The Sandakphu Trek is popularly known as “Sandakphu –Singalila” trek It will enable you to discover the Sublime Himalayan interiors unmarred by mankind.

The name Sandakphu means the ‘Height of the Poison Plant’, a direct reference to the profusion of the poisonous aconite plants that grow near the peak. The loftiest peak of the Singalila Range, Sandakphu is the culminating point of many trekking routes in the Darjeeling-Sikkim region.
