The Singalila Trek is the most admired trek in Sikkim to bring the trekkers at the foot of Mt. Kanchenjunga. The Singalila Trek in Sikkim covers the political boundary of Nepal and Sikkim and brings the ancient Himalayan Kingdom of Tibetan culture. The trek that brings the breath-taking views of the Himalayan range in spite of the presence of some barren landscape; being devoid of any trees and boasts of rocky hills but still the charm and the placid atmosphere is the adequate reason to captivate tremendous trekkers all around the valleys. The folds and grassy meadow of Singalila adds delight to trekking at Singalila to bring a blissful environment. The presence of astounding lakes all around the Singalila region add a perfect charm to the ambience of trekking in Sikkim.
This century old trek is an easy narrow path all along the Indo-Nepali border at the edge of the jungle and the rhododendron forests. The Singalila range is one of the rare spots on earth where the view embraces five summits rising above 8000m, amongst them Everest, Makalu and Lhotse. The Singalila Trekking will also bring the fascinations of different Sikkim monasteries like Pemayangtse, Tashiding, Rumtek to bring a touch of culture and make this journey a rare venture.
Besides this, the trail will also take the trekkers towards Darjeeling Hills where vast stretches of tea plantations bring a relaxed ambience along Tibetan Buddhist monastery. The fascinating Singalila Trek rules amidst the grandeur of the mountain peaks, lush green valleys, cascading waterfalls, fast flowing rivers, beautiful monasteries and terraced hills; Sikkim trekking brings a rare and exotic experience.
