Goecha – La Trek - 16 Days

Kanchenjung Sikkim

Goecha La Trek is an outstanding one in the isolated area of west Sikkim. Sikkim shares its border with Tibet to the North, Bhutan to the East, Nepal to the West and the State of West Bengal (India) to the South. It is a beautiful land of monumental mountains from which Khangchendzonga;  the world’s third highest mountain peak of the world can be viewed. The trek itself can be challenging, in terms of distances to be covered in a day. One needs to get properly acclimatized due to the huge changes in altitude over a small time during this trek. It is one of the greenest regions in the world, remains one of the top things to do for any holiday maker in the Himalayas untouched by any effluence, these forests support a fine ecosystem, with numerous species of unusual flora and fauna. This trek  offers stunning Himalayan views, beautiful landscape, Lush valley and  Mixed Sikkim culture. This trek towards Khangchendzonga situating at an elevation of 6,000 ft in sub-tropic moss-laden forests of pine, magnolia and rhododendron steadily progressing upwards through wild and uninhabited alpine landscapes finally takes us up to Goechala Pass, opposite to the eastern phase of  Khangchendzonga (8435m).
