Darjeeling is not just a honeymoon place anymore. I kept reading about Singalila Trek, and when I suggested it to my friends, they brushed it off as a honeymoon spot. However, after a lot of convincing and making them read travelogues of this spot, we took this tour. It was simply brilliant. The trek is quite difficult and the toughness is more due to the chilling weather. I even faced a little bit of breathing issues in the middle, but the trek leader was helpful. The Sikkim tour that accompanied after this trek was more of a relaxed and laid back one. I loved the trek as well as the trip.

I had a good trek. I have no complaints on the trek organization front, but the trek definitely seemed very tough and risky. It was quite a tiresome one too. Without ample practice and training, the trek cannot be completed successfully. I guess people must be well-equipped physically before taking this trek.
