Sandakphu & Phalut Trek

There are few treks in the Eastern Himalayas that can be deemed as a complete trek for beginners- introducing them into the world of trekking. Sandakphu is one such trek. The trail which lies at the heart of Singalila National Park coincides with the route trekkers take to cover the entire Singalila ridge by doing the Singalila trek. Regardless of which trek you choose between the two, Sandakphu trek gives the trekkers the immense satisfaction of witnessing the highest mountain ranges in the world, namely Kangchendzonga, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu. It is here that the impression Kangchendzonga range gives for a sleeping Buddha appears for real. This setting is further beautified with the onset of spring when the beautiful Rhododendrons and Magnolias are seen in full bloom. A light drizzle while walking by the lovely meadows can bewitch the mind and soul. The option of finding accommodation in bungalows and lodges and availability of food makes it very convenient for trekkers – something seldom matched in any other trail in the country.
