About the Sandakphu Trekking:

  • The Sandakphu walk, which starts at an elevation of 11,930 feet, is known as a 'Trekkers Wonderland.' Mount Everest, Kangchenjunga, Lhotse, and Makalu are the four major peaks to be seen on this expedition. This walk follows the well-known Singalila Ridge, a high plateau that is on the southern end of a long crest that comes down from the Kanchendzongha range and forms the border between Sikkim and Nepal.
  • This ridge, which passes through small communities, is possibly one of the most scenically appealing in the Himalayas. The entire path is located within Singalila National Park, a biodiversity hotspot that is home to a variety of bird species, including the Red Panda, which is rare but no longer impossible to see.
