Trekking in the state of Sikkim is very different and a unique experience that you would not gain from trekking in any other part of India. The Indian Himalayas trek in Sikkim is awesome and a must take. What we enjoyed the most were the mountains, the trek trails, the people and their unique culture. This was a sharp contrast to our habits and culture. The trek is not that difficult and it is in fact very much feasible to be taken even by a first timer as well. The trekking was very nicely planned and organized with perfect budget. Do try this trek.

The trek might sound easy, but it is really not for the amateur trekkers. Guys, make sure you know enough about the Himalayan terrains and all the quotients related to height. Also, the vendor you go along for the Goecha La trek also matters a lot. If you can, try to book with Thrillophilia or directly with their app. For our group, we booked it only 15 days prior the trek, but while we went to Bagdogra, we found everything on place and properly arranged. All the best for the new aspirants of Goechala trek.

Definitely not for the light hearts. Make sure you have enough experience of trekking before you indulge in the Goechala trek. From around 5000 ft. it will take you to a greater height of around 16,000 ft. Pack well before you start, get all the required info form the trek operator and do your own research on it. To be on the safer side, try to book it with this organiser as they have the best of the Himalayan trek guides and other crew members.

Trekking through the entire Goechala trek route was not so easy...but then that was the real fun of trekking. Every single move on the trek got us closer to the charm of the snow-capped peaks. The evergreen forest and the colourful views were also unbelievable. Had awesome moments with the crew members. Good going guys.

I am madly and deeply in love with Sikkim. I can't believe a place like this can be so beautiful and still people are unaware about it. Walking through narrow pathways and tiny hamlets on the way make this place all the more interesting and worth the effort.

This was an expedition we went for when me and a few of my friends were visiting Sikkim. This trek not only taught us about ourselves but also brought all of us a lot closer together. I highly recommend to go for this trek if you are on a holiday with friends. But one needs to consult a physician before going on this trek since it can get challenging after a point of time.
