Sikkim
Location
9 days
Duration

This is undoubtedly the most popular trek in Sikkim, famed for its superb mountain views, a floral spectacle in summer, birds and views of pristine forest. Birds like Wagtails, Redstarts, Minivets, Whistling Thrushes, Blue Magpies, Tree Pies and more can be spotted along the way. Numerous wild flowers including Potentellias, Saxifrage, Anemones and Primulas spread out in a colourful patchwork while sheep and yaks graze contentedly on the luxuriant vegetation. The mountains are at their tantalizing best — a sharp shower and the clouds lift for a few minutes to reveal the steep south face of Pandim. Climb the hill above the bungalow referred to as Dzongri Top, and you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of Kabru (7,353m), Ratong (6,678m), Kangchendzonga (8,534 m), Koktang (6,147m), Pandim (6,691m) and Narsing (5,825m). Towards the west, the Singalila Ridge, which separates Sikkim from Nepal, can be seen.
