Best Treks In Sikkim

Pelling is a small town situated in the hills in West Sikkim, 7,200 feet above the sea level. Despite being one of the lesser-known towns in the area, it is slowly gaining attention as a popular tourist destination. 

Pelling is a dream destination for trekkers, nature lovers, bird-watchers and serenity seekers. The city is dotted with heritage structures like ancient monasteries and breath-taking waterfalls like the Kanchenjunga falls, the Rimbi Waterfall and the Changey Waterfall. The Sanga Choeling Monastery and the Pemayangtse Monastery are the two of the main monasteries in the area that one must visit for their heritage and architectural significance when they are in Pelling. 

Pelling is easily accessible from both Gangtok and Darjeeling. It is located at a distance of 131 km from Gangtok and 73.9 km from Darjeeling. The nearest airport is the Bagdogra Airport in Siliguri from where one can hire buses and cars to reach Pelling. You can also hire buses that leave at frequent intervals from Gangtok and Siliguri that pass through Pelling. 

The best time to visit Pelling is between December to May, which consists of winter, spring, and summer. During December, the temperature drops down to -5 degrees Celsius, allowing the tourists to take advantage of the snow and enjoy sports like the snow-skating. The summers are equally vibrant, with temperatures remaining cool throughout the day and different kinds of flowers filling up the valleys in the area. 

The main language spoken here is Sikkimese, but Nepali and Hindi are also spoken fluently by the locals. The cuisine here is mainly north-Eastern and several local shops sell delicacies that are a speciality of this place. The town is well-equipped with multiple hotels and restaurants to ensure a comfortable stay for the tourists.

Best place to stay. People should definitely go for the attic room with the mountain view. Felt so luxurious. The room was just amazing with superb washrooms so clean along with a comfortable bed and good facilities. The staffs were professional and responsive always provide service on-time. Staff was very cordial. It has a pure veg restaurant attached and the food was great.

I booked Magpie The Chestnut Retreat from Thrillophilia at a very decent price along with the activities. The check in and check out process was also done easily with just the e-voucher of Thrillophilia. The stay was comfortable and the food served was very delicious. There we experienced activities like yak ride and ATV ride. Everything was taken care of in the beautiful resort.

The resort is pretty along with the amazing views of the place. The room were so clean along with a comfortable bed and good facilities. The staffs were professional. No doubt we would be back. Highly recommended if you are visiting Pelling.
The Singalila Trek by Thrillophilia had everything that I wanted from a trek .From adventurous forest trails to sights of the Everest, this trek was the most enjoyable experience of my entire life. The support staff, guide and even the whole organised process of the trek was all due to Thrillophilia and their committed people for which I wanted to personally thank them by writing my thrillophilia reviews. They even made sure that the group was having fun during the strenuous ascents and descents, which not many people think of. Thrillophilia even customised the booking process according to our convenience, and did everything on our behalf. With this trekking tour by Thrillophilia, I am happy to say that they have gained a permanent customer who will be coming back for their help pretty soon.
I am an ardent lover of trekking and other adventure sports and activities. Thanks to Thrillophilia, I found a trekking tour to Singalila at the cheapest price ever, that too with the inclusion of permits as well as a guide. This year, my wish to complete the Singalila national park Trek came true only because of Thrillophilia. Everything, right from the booking procedure, to the mode of payment was easy and without any issues. In fact, they made sure that everything was taken care of even during the trek. Upon my arrival at home after the trek, Thrillophilia even made sure to ask for any issues that I might have faced during the Singalila Trek, which is commendable. Thank you for such a memorable trek.
