As soon as we leave Yuksom and enter the forest, our hearts are taken right away by the beauty of the typical Sikkimese lush green deep forest. We cross 3 river bridges before reaching our campsite.

Goechala Trek - - Why Its A Must-Do

  • Goechala is a premier trek offering up-close views of the mighty Kanchenjunga which is the 3rd highest mountain in the World. The vast mountain massif of Kanchenjunga stands tall and forms a natural border between Sikkim and Nepal. It is not just a mountain for the region. It is worshipped like a God on both sides of the border and is believed to protect the region by the local sentiments. It parents almost 16 other mountains and the mere sight of it from the Dzongri Top or the Goechala top will blow off your mind with its aura.
  • The view that the Goechala trek offers is one of the rarest and most beautiful in all Himalayan treks. Some of the most elegant looking mountains are visible from the top of Dzongri and Goecha La. The wide panorama extends from Black Kabru which is one of the holiest peaks for the locals and extends to the peaks of Bhutan as we spin our head towards the west. Mt. Jupono, Tenchenkhang, Pandim, Simvo, Goecha Peak, Forked Peak, Kanchenjunga, Kumbhakarna, Rathong, Koktang, South Kabru, North Kabru dominates the view with their divine aura.
  • In the months of February, March and April, the trek is beautified by the bloom and fragrance of fresh rhododendrons and magnolias. As we trek through some of the densest forests in the Himalayas, crossing the gushing tributaries of the mighty Teesta river, the colours and fragrance of its rich flora take away all the pain of our steep ascends and descends. You also need to be cautious of wild junipers as their sweet smell can be intoxicating.
  • The dense forest cover of the Kanchenjunga National Park is home to many wildlife species and is an abode for bird watchers. The rare Red Pandas can be seen biting on the tall bamboo trees if you are lucky and are in a smaller and quiet trekking group. 
  • When we talk about the Goechala trek, we cannot miss the mystic Samiti Lake which is one of the most serene lakes I have ever witnessed. Altogether, a different and divine energy works around it. Also, beneath the Goechala, there is a small and lovely turquoise colour lake that appears like a tear drop. The mere sight of this lake will take you out of this World.
  • While we talk about the Goechala Trek, we should not miss the glory of the sunrise and sunset this trek has to offer from the top of Dzongri and Goechala. It's simply the best magic of Mother Nature that you can witness.
  • On this trek, you will be welcomed by the unmatched hospitality of the Subba and Limboo culture. This will allow for a great platform for the exchange of knowledge and make your trek worthy.

Goechala Trek - An Elaborate Description

goechala trek
Goechala

In the far east corner of the Indian Himalayas, there exist a small state of Sikkim inhabited by culturally rich, warm and welcoming people. Here people of all tribes, namely Bhutias, Lepchas, Limboos, Subbas and Rai, all live together in a rich cultural harmony making this place touristic heaven. Here, the dzos and yaks are the family members, and the mighty Kanchenjunga fathers them all.

With Kanchenjunga standing huge, right in front of you on Goecha La at 5000 meters, the tear-shaped Goecha Lake, Jaw-dropping sunrises and sunsets on the snow cladded high Himalayan peaks, A panorama of more than 16 peaks from Dzongri top, dense Himalayan forests, its rivers and meadows, rhododendrons, yaks ... Dzongri Goechala is a trek you will fall in love with. Once you do the Goechala trek, you will feel like doing it again and again... such a beautiful trek it is.

Goecha La is a pass in the Prek Chu Valley of the Western Sikkim region. It merges the ridge of the elegant and Godly Pandim with that of the small Goecha Peak. Towards its north lies the Talung Glacier and Kanchenjunga - The Third highest Mountain of the World is at a stone's throw distance from the pass. The trek to it crosses the vast meadow and pasture land of Thansing, the serene Samity Lake and the rough Zemathang plains. It is all surrounded by some of the most elegant looking peaks in the Himalayas, namely the Holy Pandim, Tenchenkhang, Jupono on the right, Forked Kabru and other Kabru groups of peaks on the left and the mighty Kanchenjunga straight forward rising up high, very high in fact.

Dzongri La is another high altitude pass in the Oklathang Valley and serves as the gateway to the Rathong Glacier, Rathong La and then finally into Nepal. It can be done as a short excursion from Dzongri. The pass top is one of the most spectacular places on the Earth. Surrounded by the mighty and holy peaks of the Kabru, specifically the Black Kabru, it makes one of the very divine places to trek to. All the peaks of this valley are considered very holy and are worshipped by the locals of Sikkim.

The trek starts from Yuksom, a small village in West Sikkim. It was the ancient capital of Sikkim. As soon as you touch the roads of Sikkim, the positive energy of Buddhism starts to take over your heart. The cool wind furling the prayer flags gives you peace. The smiling face welcoming you with warmth makes you feel pleasant. The trek takes you through thick dense forest crossing multiple tributaries of Rangeet river to get you above the tree line after 3 days. The peaks of Kanchenjunga, Pandim, Tenchenkhang and Jupono sees you over continuously motivating you to reach closer to them, and at Goecha La, you feel like you are just a few kilometres away from touching the Godly mountain. Words can only put a limit to describe this trek. The feeling is ecstatic and indescribable.  

Join our trek to gift yourself a fulfilling experience of the Goechala trek, Sikkim and the Himalayas.

  

IMPORTANT NOTE:

The Kanchenjunga National Park has declared the area beyond the View Point 1 as a Wild Habitat Zone and trekkers, including Locals are no longer allowed to visit Goechala, the actual top of the pass. The last point that we could go on this trek is till View Point 1 only and view the Goechal La and Kancvhenjunga rising tall in its background from this point. Need to mention that it looks spectacular even from here.

Customized Private Group For Goechala Trek

Trekking is a very personal activity and is perhaps one of the very few activities that give you enough time to indulge with yourself or your beloved people, group of special friends, or close family members. It helps you transform personal bonds to the next level as it brings out everyone's best and truest self. Trekking is most enjoyed when it is done in a small private group, personalized to serve your specific needs. The Himalayas are best experienced when there is silence and solitude around and when you are surrounded only by your best people. Your trek is most enjoyable when all the pain of arranging a smooth trek is taken care of by us, and you focus just on your trek and yourself. Most importantly, a small private trekking group is very flexible, personalized and more enjoyable, is the safest and follows the principles of Sustainable and Responsible Tourism. We specialize in and are more popular for arranging Small Customized Private Trekking Groups to the Himalayas. Enquire For Customized Private Trek
