Darjeeling and Singalila National Park Tour Overview

Ranged at an altitude of 11,930 ft the Sandakphu trek is popularly known as a ‘Trekkers Wonderland’. The four massive peaks bound this trek- Mount Everest, Kangchenjunga, Lhotse, and Makalu. This trek follows the famous Singalila Ridge, a high ground that lies at the southern end of a long crest, which runs down from the Kanchendzongha range and forms the border between Sikkim & Nepal.

This ridge, passing through small settlements, is perhaps one of the most scenically rewarding in the Himalayas. The entire trail is inside Singalila National park a biodiversity hotspot that boasts numerous species of birds and Red Panda is rare but not impossible to sight.
