The region in itself is wonderfull and the trek follows a ridge with great views. Unfortunatelly, we had plenty of jeeps making the same route as we did. As most of the... More

Its a rare place, accessible by common people, from where one can see both the 'Kanchenjangha' and Mt. Everest. There is a motorable road to reach Sandakphu, but the road condition is horrible (naturally) . I will suggest to on trek which I find to be more enjoyable.

We, a group of 4, experienced the most common trek to Sandakphu and then to Phalut. Although each day of this trek, from Tonglu to Srikhola, had awesome view of the Kanchenjunga range, our experience at Sandakphu was the best. The sunrise from the view point was just awesome. The whole Everest range, Kanchenjunga range and the peaks of Bhutan... More

The highest point of West Bengal India. While trekking, you walk in Nepal and in India without any visa or Passport. LOL. Nice experience and a must have one.

Fantastic views on a clear day. The lodges there are relatively better than others on the sandakphu trail except Shikar at Tumling which is much better.

If you enjoy trekking, don't miss the opportunity to complete the trek to sandakphu ... and phalut . The most enjoyable part of the trek is the 21 km route between sandakphu and phalut when you will be walking along the ridge with no trees or vegetation to protect you from the weather. The view in april may, when the... More

I joined a trek along the Singalila Ridge. The panoramic sunrise views of the Himalayas, the Kangchenjunga and Everest ranges are breathtaking, figuratively and literally, as you are 3,500 meters into the heavens.
