Kanchanjunga Goechla Trekking

Kanchanjunga Goechla Trekking

Just 3 hours north of Darjeeling Town, is the tiny Kingdom of Sikkim. Wedged between Tibet, Bhutan, and Nepal, Sikkim is still considered ‘Shangri-La' by many of those who have ventured to its remoteness, spectacular mountain terrain, exotic flora and fauna, fascinating old monasteries and the exotic cultural lifestyle.

This alluring enchantment is exactly what the dreams are made of Sikkim is a landlocked state with no airport because of its mountainous terrain and no railway feasible because of the steep gradient. Only the determined traveler can start their jaunt from Bagdogra – the nearest airport and Siliguri, the closest railway terminal. Regardless of the starting point, it is still hours of road odyssey through winding and curving road to the capital, Gangtok of this beautiful elevated countryside.

Very few visitors venture out to visit Sikkim and fewer still have time or inclination for treks and specialized tours. But for those who do have the patience and endeavor to discover more of this little kingdom will have their rewards with sights, sounds, and settings.
