Trekking in Sikkim: What to expect

Although the treks here are quite challenging, manoeuvring through the tough terrain will feel worthwhile once you reach any summit. There are glorious views all around, and photography enthusiasts will be delighted. One of the best things about trekking in Sikkim is the solitude. You won’t see anyone for miles around. Some of the popular destinations for trekking in Sikkim include Goechala Trek, the combination of Dzongri and Goechala trek, and the Barsey Rhododendron Trek.

Trekking in Sikkim: Dzongri and Goechala

Dzongri and Goechala are some of the best places to visit in Sikkim. The Dzongri Goechala trek will take you through lush forests of ancient oak and rhododendron trees, across fragrant alpine meadows with great open views, and to the hill station of Darjeeling. While on the Goechala trek, you’ll also see the world-famous Kanchenjunga Peak, and experience village life at Tsokha, a Tibetan settlement.

Trekking in Sikkim: Goecha La trek

On the Goechala trek, you’ll climb to an elevation of at least 16,000 feet, and get views of the Kanchenjunga. To experience the local life as authentically as possible, you can stay in log huts while trekking through Sikkim. A ten-day Goecha La trek will give you views of Sikkim like never before. The route goes through lush sub-tropical jungles filled with ferns and orchids, making this one of the best places to visit in Sikkim.

Trekking in Sikkim: Snow trek to Goecha La

Trekking in Sikkim is a unique experience, especially during the winter season. A mix of treacherous and easy stretches sprinkled with rewards, the Goechala trek in the winter can be quite challenging. Camp in the meadows of Dzongri, Lake Samiti, and see the snow-clad Kanchenjunga mountain range.

Trekking in Sikkim: Barsey Rhododendron Trek

Trekking in Sikkim is at its most beautiful during the rhododendron season. The Barsey trek is one of the best places to visit in Sikkim during this time. Set among blooming rhododendrons and the grand panoramas of the Kanchenjunga range, this is one of the most colourful experiences of trekking in Sikkim. If you’re a nature-lover, you’ll love the different varieties of rhododendron species, as well as the birds and insects you’ll spot.
