Singalila Round Trek is such a trek where you can experience much more and yet never be bored of it.

The Singalila Round Trek is a gem of a trek making you fall in love with the Himalayas freshly. It has almost all the elements of a Himalayan experience to make it one of the best remote treks to be done in the Himalayas of North Eastern India. The sight of remote villages aloof from the internet world with the locals greeting you with a big warm smile and welcoming you to their land like their friend.. The dense jungles of Sikkim where you can get lost even in the daylight if not accompanied.. The wild flowers to the colourful rhododendrons intoxicating the route with its fragrance and beauty..  Oh ! there are lots more...

Tall and elegant, snow cladded peaks of the region lures you to get nearer to them. Rising above 7000 meters to as high as 8586 meters to become the 3rd highest mountain in the World - Kanchenjung, meaning 5 treasures of the snow feels motherly and a spiritual guide. The locals swear by its name and considers it their God. So it is, and you will only know the reason once you witness its sheer height, magnificence and vastness.. On this trek Kanchenjunga will show you its different shapes and might, from distance in the beginning and as we get on well into the trek, from as close as a stone's throw distance..  Yeah... standing in front of this huge mountain is a eye opener in which you realize, you are so small and just a mortal..   read on...

The slow waves of the Samity lake and the Goecha lake has the power to get any being silent and worship its calm and serenity.. It gets you peaceful to the core while the breeze hits your face refreshing you and gets off all your worries... and as you breathe in the fresh Himalayan air, you reform into a new spiritual being, a stronger you is born

well...  the trek has more. As we start the trek from Uttarey, a beautiful village in West Sikkim, the trek walks us on the ridge bordering Nepal and Sikkim crossing the pious Danpheybir La and Laxmi Pokhari before reaching Dzongri - the meeting place of the pious souls. Dzongri top offers one of the most spectacular sunrises in the Himalayas as the Sun slowly lits the mighty Kanchenjunga and then its family of peaks to gift your soul a eternal high that you can never forget..  yeah, if you cry at the sight of the blissful beauty, dont blame us !

Customized Private Group For Singalila Goechala Circuit 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
