This is a must-visit for travellers to Sikkim. This is a well-known trek where you are able to witness the spectacular view of Mt Kanchenjunga, the third-highest peak in the world and takes you to some of the most beautiful places in Sikkim. This trekking route is different from all the other routes, which makes it all the more adventurous and interesting. Apart from the summit of Kanchenjunga, you will also have the opportunity to view 14 other mountain summits when the visibility is clear. Goechala Trek is thus considered to be one of the big mountains treks of India. The initial part of this trek is easy and but gets harder over the days. There must be a minimum of 3-4 pax per group. Prices for children below 6 years old and locals available upon request.

Glacier Travel

Kiran climbed his way up from a trekking staff to a well-experienced trekking guide in West Sikkim. He is practically trained and that's extremely important when going to multiple-day treks in high altitudes. He offers very good prices for treks and takes both private small groups and big groups (up to 15 people). His prices vary according to the quality of equipment and service but the most important thing for him is the happiness of his clients.
