Darjeeling to Kanchenjunga Trek

Darjeeling to Kanchenjunga Trek

Darjeeling to Kanchenjunga is one of the finest trek in Sikkim. At first through luxuriant rhododendrons, pines, spruces and giants magnolias forests, then through green meadows and yak pastures, the trek leads us towards west Sikkim, close to the Nepali border. Along the Onglakhing glacier moraines and Samiti sacred lake, we climb up to Goecha La pass, highlight of this magnificent itinerary, where we will savor the breath-taking scenery of the Talung glacier and the impressive east face of the third highest summit in the world, Kanchenjunga (8586m).

We are surrounded by Rathong (6679m), Kabru (7338m), Talung (7349m) to the south, and Kirat Chuli (7365m) and Pyramid Peak (7123m) to the north. The way back via a recently opened path, goes through lush green jungles overgrown with lianas and orchids
