With a panorama of more than 16 peaks from Dzongri top, The Yuksom - Dzongri La trek is a power trek in itself. Climbing upto the final altitude of 4170 meters in just 3 days, this trek gives you one of the most beautiful views of Kanchenjunga and that of the Oklathang Valley, apart from offering a physically demanding trek as well. Thats what makes it a perfect trek for the Himalayan High Seekers. The trek from Dzongri to Dzongri La following the route to HMI base camp is an awesome experience with giant mesmerizing peaks of the Himalayas surround you in its panorama. The huge and spiritual presence of Black Kabru standing tall right in front of you is just breathtaking, apart from the Kabru group of peaks taking your heart away. Kanchenjunga, the mother of all blesses you with its magestic presence - a rare combination of Himalayan Aura.

The cultural experience of the Dzongri La trek is a rich and vivid one too!! The cultural mix and harmony of Lepchas, Bhutias, Subbas and Limboos adds to the cultural richness of this trek. 

The flora and fauna of the Kanchenjunga National Park does not fail to attract your attention as well. Here, you will trek under one of the most denser forest cover in the Himalayas. The campsite of Sachen and Bakhim in right in the middle of the deep jungle, which starts to clear as we gain altitude from Tshokha and beyond. 

This trek can be done both in Springs, Autumn and the Winters. When done in winter, this trek adds a terrific thrill factor and makes it a bit challenging, but very rewarding trek experience in the Himalayas. Let us know if you would like to join the very few who does this trek in the winters.
