Gyeljen Sherpa invites you to join him on a trek through exotic Sikkim. Once it's own Kingdom, tiny Sikkim is now a state of India. Sikkim is home to the third highest mountain in the world, Kanchenjunga (8586m / 28,169ft), one of the largest mountains in sheer size in the Himalaya.


From Delhi, we will take a domestic flight to Bagdogra, then on to the legendary city of Darjeeling, home of His Holiness, the Dali Lama, and the Tibetan government in exile.

We will be traveling through the Kanchenjuna Biosphere Reserve' walking in rhododendron forests, camping in small villages, visiting Buddhist monasteries and shrines, traversing high alpine passes and experiencing breathtaking Himalayan vistas. We will camp beside the sacred lake of Lam Pokhari and cross the high pass of Goecha La, 16, 207 feet, the highest point on our route. Along the way will will interact with the local people, getting to know their customs and culture and making new friends.
