A highly experienced company providing high altitude trekking and cultural tours operating in the misty mountain state of Sikkim, India. Our base of experience lies in our journey into what it is like to seek adventure. It's certainly not just the thrill of sheer cliffs or majestic views (of which there are plenty)! Sikkim always had a lot more to offer to the many travellers that visited over the centuries. The difference lies in how you open your mind and heart to see the virtues, character, and warmth in its people, the sanctitude and profound value of its traditions, religions and ubiquitous prayer flags and the deep echo of spiritual significance in its breathtaking mountains and valleys.
If there are meaning and purpose in what we do, it lies in what this unique and mystical state has to offer; where the landscapes are more than just majestic peaks and the culture is always more than just a story.

8-Day Goecha La Trekking
Covering a distance of 90 km and reaching up to a maximum altitude of 15,100 ft, the Goecha La trekking route is a splendid trail. Starting from Yuksom, the terrain is sub-tropical with lush canopied forests to walk through and the sound of the raging Prekchu river is ever-present as a distant hum. The same terrain persists till Tshoka from where the route takes a temperate hue. The trail from Tshoka to Phedang and further till Dzongri is covered with lush Rhododendron forests and is often prone to misty whiteouts. Often getting muddy, a track of wooden logs guide the trekkers further on. Upon reaching Dzongri, trekkers are now in the alpine zone and meadows and shrunken rhododendrons litter the area. Dzongri top provides a majestic view of the surrounding valleys and peaks. From Dzongri, the trail really opens up: it is gradual at first and then descends into the Oglathang Valley.
The first stop before Thansing is by the river at Kokchurung. A small forested trail greets us after Kokchurung till Thansing. From Thansing, the trail is wide and open till Lamuney. As we proceed to viewpoint 1, we come across the majestic Samiti Lake. The final climb to viewpoint 1 is steep and the altitude makes it more challenging. However, trekkers are rewarded with stunning views of the third highest mountain in the world, the Kanchendzonga, and other equally imposing mountains line the spectacular view.
