Thanks to Sikkim and Darjeeling’s huge range of altitudes and landscapes the traveler has a lot to choose from. We can offer car-based tours with or without day walks in the ‘monastery circuit’ of West Sikkim or take you to the high valleys of Lachung and Lachen in the North. For trekkers there are a number of easy to moderately strenuous treks that stay well below 2500 m. They lead through green farmland, bamboo groves and subtropical forests full of orchids, and over ridges that offer great views. You’ll pass many tiny villages and picturesque Hindu temples and Buddhist monasteries. Overnight stay can be in tents or clean and cosy home-stays.

Among the lighter treks the Singalila Ridge trek (in Darjeeling District) is justifiably popular as it is not very hard but offers awesome views of Mt. Kangchenjunga and other eight-thousanders in Nepal. We offer a similar trek a bit higher up inside Sikkim that can be done as a prelude to the Kangchenjunga trek. The latter is arguably the mother of all treks in Sikkim. This 8-day trek starts at Yuksom (1740 m/ 5700 ft) and gradually climbs through rhododendron forests and alpine yak meadows to the pass Goecha La (4940 m/16207 ft) from where you get awesome views of the glacier-clad Kangchenjunga (8586 m/28169 ft).
