    About the Destination:

    Goecha La is a tiny place located in Sikkim, and Goecha La trek is a dream and desire for hundreds of adventure lovers throughout the country. Entangled amidst vibrant and colourful flora and fauna, it is also the way to the astounding Kanchenjunga National Park to dive into the natural beauty. It is not about Kanchenjunga alone but the combination of other big summits around it makes Goechala Trek an absolute adventure to many and it is a great pleasure to watch these summits from the landscapes filled with exotic flowers and immensely attractive meadows and forests.

    To watch the mountains clearly, you should visit Goechala during October to November since the sky will be completely clear during this time and the sunset, as well as sunrise views, would be perfect. But the cold climate that welcoming winter season would be a bit tough but still it is considered to be the suitable time to enjoy the snow-clad peaks without restraints. The altitude Goechala is posing before the trekkers is 4940 meters and that is the best reason for gathering trekkers from all over the world to the small state of Sikkim.

    About the trek:

    You are happily invited to take part in an 11-day trek to Goechala to watch the mighty Kanchenjunga closer to your eyes alongside the best Himalayan peaks in the region. The trek begins with your arrival at Bagdogra Airport or NJP railway station. Yuksom is where you will stay on the first night and from there, the exciting trek to Goechala commences. Teesta River and the uphill drive to cross a bridge in Legship will be an irreplaceable act of happiness. Yuksom to Sachen covering Rathong River, Paha Khola Bridge and lush green forests will be the most happening route of the trek until you reach Tshoka that is undoubtedly beautiful with the presence of Prek Chu River, Viburnum Plantations and many more scenic visuals.

    Tshokha to Phedang will take you to experience the cuddling features of thick rhododendron forests whereas Dzongri will be offering you the best views of Koktang, Rathong, Kabru, Kanchenjunga and Pandim which are the towering peaks in the Himalayas. Thangshing would be waiting for you with multiple prayer flags, chortens, and the abnormally beautiful views of the Pandim Peak along with the gushing sounds of Prek Chu River. Climbing uphill through the moraines, to reach the Samiti Lake and the Zemathang Plateau which are the gateways to Goechala. Capture all the possible moments overwhelmingly beautified by the sights of Kanchenjunga and other major peaks touching the white clouds above and complete your trek on the 11th day after returning to Yuksom and from there to Bagdogra.

    The two major things you should do before the start of the trek are making an entry at the police station with submitting a photo identity proof copies and paying the permit fees at the forest check post.
