Located in the state of Sikkim, this Goecha La trek is my dream and desire come true. This trek is a treat to all the adventure lovers who are in our country or visit our country. This place is nestled midst colourful, unique, and vibrant flora and fauna. This trek also paves way to the astounding Kanchenjunga National Park that can be visited in a day. This trek is an opulent beauty as it opens doors to murky valleys, snow clad mountain peaks, astonishing lakes, and lovely rivers in Sikkim. I was just marvelled at the spectacular beauty of this place.

Amazing location, the views are just great. Trekking to Nagtibba might get challenging but then all the effort is worth putting for. Since the view is damn good.

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.

If you are looking for a short and wonderful trek, Nagtibba trek is the one for you. It was easy for me to book this trek with Thrillophhilia and all the 3 days of the trek was really wonderful. Including the other group members, the trek guides and instructors were also helpful in arranging the overnight stays and other necessary stuffs for the trek. A big thanks to all the awesome members for making this trek a memorable one for me.

There are lot of fun things to do like hiking, skiing, mountaineering, etc. and I'm glad I kinds tried everything while there. Great place, Great trek and i loved the entire experience!

As I close my eyes, I can vividly recall the moment when I reached the peak after a long trek full of patience. There were tears of joy. I’m truly blessed. Incredible India!

My spouse and I, signed up for this Trek during July 16’ 2017. This is our first trek and experience of the Himalayas. While I agree that I did get carried away by the images on the site, but apparently the valley is not always in full bloom. There are meadows with variety of flowers but if you go with the pictures in the site, you would be a bit disappointed. Instead I would recommend you carry the expectation to view green meadows as far as your eyes can see, with patches of purple, blue, red, pink flowers across and occasionally streams flowing in your pathway. Yes, you can drink water from these fresh water mountain stream! Is’nt this an amazing experience! ? ? I just loved every bit of this trek, starting from the Trek Leaders obsession to ensure we are all fit and fine, the small Ghangharia village which bustles with life only during the season of June – Oct, occasional small pitstops selling hot chai and maggi enroute the trek, the glaciers that we got a chance to see and step on, the never ending view of mountains, the beautiful flora (pics inset), the still ‘reflection’ lake atop the Hemkund Sahib, a helicopter ride (my bucket list) , Badrinath, a chance to visit the last village of the Indian Territory – Mana (wow!!), and last but not the least, have hot chai from the last teashop of the Indian Territory. I never expected to get the opportunity to see this village nor interact with the people there. Thank you so much to the Trek Organizers. Overall we did ~47 km of trek on this rugged terrain with steep ascents. We never expected that we could push ourselves so much, but Himalayan range is so magical and serene that you end up getting your strength from nature to push yourselves. I would highly recommend folks to take one chance to visit this land of the mystics! It is a life time experience!

The Trek To Rathong Glacier In Sikkim is a special, novel, and unique experience that I am excited and happy about sharing with you all. I remember reading about the famous treks in India in a travel blog and places like Gangotri, Kilimanjaro, Rathong were listed. I used to wonder what is so great about this place that most of the magazines gave such rave reviews about. When I saw the images of this place, I realized what a beauty this place indeed is. I since then have this place in my wish list of treks to take. I, however, did not find time or a perfect trek partner to go on this trek with. Finally when I did happen to take this trek, I was spell bound by the beauty of this trek. This place is beyond words – Absolute Brilliance and Class.

From the Nagtibba Base to Nagtibba Top, the trek was really good. The trekking routes were quite easy and can be traversed easily. Only on the first day, you might have to put in some effort to traverse the steep slopes. Second and third day are truly awesome and proves to be the reward for the first day's effort. Our group was fortunate enough to book this trek when the weather and climate were highly favourable. We got to enjoy astounding views of the Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch and several other peaks.
