It was a dream come true for me and some of my friends. We have been planning a trek to Sikkim for a long time. We are a group of all girls and we were looking for some packages only for women. But we did not get many options. Finally we decided to book a tour package with other people also. But it went well. We did not face any trouble during the whole trip and very much thankful to all the people came with us and the guides. There was a woman manager too in the group since we were in the trip. Sikkim is a treasure house. It has everything for any age group. The trek was simply amazing. We were so excited and the routes were challenging. Our parents were asking how can we do trekking all alone. But I think, Kanchendzonga and other mountains in Sikkim do not have such variations as boys or girls. It was welcoming from the starting point to the end. Guys, the views from the top were extra ordinary. What we can see are long stretches of mountains and the snow cladding peak tops. The sunrise views were omg extremely astounding. The peaks were glittering in the first rays and it is the most scenic sight. We found yaks too. I was seeing yaks for the first time. They are so cute. Gentle too. But was scared to touch and pamper. What if they do not like us. They were roaming around freely. We were slow at many points since the routes were not so smooth but challenging too. So we had to stop in between, hydrate ourselves and continue. So according to the schedule we could not finish the trek also the last day was a little messed up. We could not explore the places as we discussed earlier but we did not feel it as a loss. Since all the places we saw were absolutely beautiful. We’ll plan some similar trips in the future and will head out to conquer the paths with more energy.

I decided to do a solo Himalayan trekking in a spur of the moment, on a Sunday afternoon. I randomly googled for the organisers and Thrillophilia were the only guys to come back with answers. They suggested me to do the Sandakhphu trek as it was my first trek as well. And I am glad they did.I would recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for an adventure as the difficulty is easy to moderate. This lets you experience not only the rich flora and fauna of the region but also gives a glimpse of the lifestyle of the pahadi people. Finally, as we watched the Mountain Goddess Kanchenjunga shining in all its grandeur, at Sandakphu, we felt every bit of the effort is worth it.

It is difficult to explain my entire experience in few words. It was an awesome experience which I would cherish my whole life.. of course it's the the only highest place in West Bengal at an altitude of 3636m that is inhabited. Places we covered throughout the trek starting from maneybhanjan include Tumbling kalipokhri to sandakphu and then all the way down timburee and Therewise srikhola. Loved each and evry minute that I spent on this trek.

What I liked the most about this trek is the variation in the terrains. At diffferent places, it offers totally different experience. Moreover, this is one of the treks that offered me fascinating views of Kanchenjunga, Mt Everest, Lhotse and Makalu peaks on the same go. Once, I was at the peak, I felt hyptonised by the beauty around. In this region, it is indeed the best treks to take.

For me, this was a treasure trove journey. Though Sandakpu is the main attraction, I also enjoyed the panorama of the other peaks and the evergreen valleys. Terrains might get difficult at times and to overcome them, you have to be quite careful and attentive towards the guides and instructors. Do not miss the sunrise view over the Kanchenjunga Peak at any cost.

We were a group of 5 people and we weren't so sure about how the trip will be because: But it turned out to be an awesome experience, April is the best time to see the rhododendrons blooming. However, starting from the landrover ride uphill, the short 5 km trek in the steep uphill to the snowfall and the other treks was something that we enjoyed the most.
