Join us on one of the most colorful treks in Sikkim, set among blooming rhododendrons and grand panoramas of the Khangchendzonga range. This trek is an easy one, perfect for trekking newbies and nature lovers. We trek in the higher sections of the Barsey Rhododendron Sanctuary in west Sikkim, which is home to 13 different varieties of rhododendron species. Bird-lovers can spot many rare birds like the Black-breasted Parrotbill, Blood Pheasant and many varieties of flycatchers.
The slopes of the Sikkim Himalayas are peppered with the bright hues and warm fragrance of thousands of blooming rhododenrons. The flowering season also means an area rife in bird and insect species, and is a nature-lover's delight.
On this trek we pass through conifer forests and soft green meadows, set against flowing river, and enjoy magnificient views of the many snow-capped mountains of the Khangchendzonga range.
