Darjeeling Singalila Trek & Sikkim

FROM £ 1498

The Singalila Ridge trek is world-renowned and is one of the most fascinating treks in India. Seize the unique opportunity to see four of the world’s five highest peaks, including Mt. Everest, Makalu, Kangchenjunga, and Lhotse. Besides these stunning points, enjoy undulating views of many other peaks of Nepal, Sikkim, Tibet, and Bhutan. It is an ethereal experience to walk through the flowering Rhododendron forests, interspersed with giant Magnolias, Spruce and a magnificent range of rare Orchids. The largest concentration in any single geographical area in the world: with over 600 varieties of Orchids in this region. Plus enjoy sunrise views of Kanchenjunga and other ice giants of the Himalayas with a cup of fine, world famous Darjeeling tea!

The perfect time to see them bloom is during the spring when the valley comes alive. The Singalila Ridge Trek route also passes through the Singalila National Park; it has many fascinating and rare animal species, including Red Pandas and Pangolins.

Enjoy the picturesque drive alongside the famous heritage Darjeeling Railway track through forests and tea estates over a 2,200 m pass at Ghoom towards our destination, Darjeeling.

The former kingdom of Sikkim lies on the steep, densely forested slopes of the Himalayas, nestled in between Nepal and the Kingdom of Bhutan. The holy mountain Kanchenjunga dominates the country majestically forth from the West; it is  the third highest mountain in the world at 8,598m. This trek is the best way to see such a magnificent place.
