What you should know
The only way to get there is to take a private hire from Bagdogra Aiport.
We recommend you get a guide so that you can take the best route. The guide will be able to settle administrative matters for you like getting a trekking permit etc. as foreigners need to get a separate trekking permit.
Trekkers should be physically fit for this adventure.
The daily trek duration is usually around 4 to 5 hours covering around 7 to 8 km a day or less.
The best months to visit are March, April, September, October
We recommend the above period because you would have:
- Better chance to spot animals
- Good weather
The different options offer you a variety of different treks that you can take. Some treks are shorter than others and offer different views.
Check out the nearby towns like Pelling and Yuksom at the foothills of Mount Khangchendzonga.
Pelling is home to the late-17th-century Buddhist Sanga Choling Monastery. The Pemayangtse Monastery features wall paintings, sculptures and a gold-plated statue of Guru Padmasambhava. It also overlooks the 17th-century Rabdentse Palace, now in ruins, still has evidence of the king’s bedroom and kitchen.
Yuksom was the first capital of Sikkim and home to the Dubdi Monastery built during 1701, which is part of the Buddhist religious pilgrimage circuit. Be sure to check out nature's wonder, Khecheopalri Lake and Kanchenjunga Falls, surrounding the town of Yuksom as well!
