In the far east corner of the Indian Himalayas, there exist a small state of Sikkim inhabited by the 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 a touristic heaven. Here, the dzos and yaks are the family members, and the mighty Kanchenjunga fathers them all.sunrise from dzongri top
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 few kilometers away from touching the Godly mountain.
Words can only put a limit to describe this trek. The feeling is ecstatic and indescribable. May be the photos help a bit.
Sad part of the story is, this trek has marked view points from where you see the mountains from a distance. Though the views are mesmerizing, standing on Goecha La is altogether a different experience which very few experience. We believe, Stand on the Goecha La and not on the viewpoints !! Feel the Himalayan High from the top, not from far !! Be the 'very few' of 'so many' trekking this route.
Join our trek to gift yourself a fulfilling experience of the Goechala trek, Sikkim and the Himalayas.
