Sikkim - Beneath Kangchenjunga T Overview

A spectacular circuit trek in Sikkim, India, with views of Kangchenjunga from the Singalila Ridge and below the Goeche La

As seen from the characterful hill-station of Darjeeling, the five-summited massif of Kangchenjunga (8586m) dominates the northern horizon. Crossing the border into the Indian state and former independent kingdom of Sikkim, this trekking holiday makes a sensational trek to the world's third highest peak which begins with an ascent to the crest of the Singalila Ridge - the prominent spur of high ground that forms the border between India and Nepal.   Here, we find views that extend to the distant peaks of Everest and Makalu. Our route continues northwards through a mountain wilderness, taking us via high passes and a succession of lovely camping places to the valley of the Prek Chu. It's from this point, above sacred Samity Lake, we make our ascent to the viewpoint for Kangchenjunga's huge south-east face. Providing a brilliant travel experience, as well as first-class trekking amongst fabulous mountain scenery, this is a simply superb trekking holiday in the Indian Himalaya.
