India Sikkim Kanchenjunga Ridge Trek

Delhi, India to Delhi, India

India Sikkim Kanchenjunga Ridge Trek
Get up close to Kanchenjunga, the world's third-highest mountain. Begin your epic adventure at Uttarey and ascend Singalila ridge towards Goechala. Enter dense forests of pine and rhododendron trees in rhapsodic bloom, passing prayer flags, yak herders and local Sherpa villages scattered throughout the valley. A remote route, this trail to Kanchenjunga's ridge does not see many other trekkers. Join the rarified few who have braved the border straddling Nepal, Sikkim and West Bengal. Take in the majesty of sacred, high-altitude lakes and sunrises with striking Himalayan views.
  • Visit tea gardens and sacred lakes in an awe-inspiring wilderness landscape- an area few hikers visit
  • Trek Sikkim's remote wilderness, with unsurpassed views of Kanchenjunga and the iconic Himalayas
  • Hike along the ridge straddling Nepal, Sikkim and West Bengal-with snow-capped peaks in sight
