About the operators: Thrillophilia ties up with trek operators for this amazing trek. The team that carries the group is well trained, well versed and allows the trekkers to focus on their trekking. To provide service at such altitude with smile on face is bliss. They also have some hidden gems planned during the trek for people to be pleasantly surprised. Our trek guide Premtuk is an old hand and lives in Yaksum region. His ability to guide the team as well as captain the support staff was fantastic. He also made sure that trekkers were absolutely taken care off. He had excellent support staff and 12 horses to make sure that we had a glitch-free day’s and nights. Tenzing, vijay and others who worked tirelessly and with laughter all the time made the time memorable. About the trek: this trek offers variety for a serious trekker. The trails and paths are not the same throughout or even different times of the year. It has varied degree of difficulty and hence one needs to be physically and mentally prepared to harness the strength. One connects to self and nature throughout and comes back rejuvenated. It’s not just the moments of seeing sunrise or the summit from various points or watching Mt Pantim alone that takes your breath away but also the journey. It’s a pilgrimage to your own inner self that one ends up discovering. Finally few words of suggestions: for city dwellers who come for this trek, it’s a great idea to come and stay In yuksam few days in advance and do some of other amazing treks. Not only it helps in acclimatisation but also allows you to soak in local culture and food.

"The beauty of this trek is all about the landscape. You start of the trek from dense forest with fresh streams and then to Rhododendron trees when you gain altitude , later which you would come across a beautiful valley overlooking Mt Kanchenjunga. Try out the local cuisine in Yuksom. Thukpa and Chang are two things you need to try out. Although the trek is not recommended for first time trekkers you can still give it a shot provided you are fit and have taken all the items in checklist. "

This was my first trip with Thrillophilia as well as with complete strangers. I must say that Thrillophilia did not disappoint me ( nobody is perfect, so be flexible to accept minute glitches) . The whole trip went so smooth , starting from the pick up from airport, the hotels we got, arrangement of permits, site seeing and drop at the airport. Special thanks to Deep ( trip coordinator from tour angle) and Ammu ( my cab driver) . P. S. : if you want to see the flower calf yumthang valley and the frozen Tsomgo and Gurudongmar lake , then the ideal time to visit north Sikkim is March-April. November is the ideal time to witness the pleasant winter of sikkim along with its untouched beauty. Looking forward to travel more with Thrillophilia. P.S: the only problem which we faced was two co- passengers who used to get late for everything and because of them we had to rush from each location because of time constraint ( I totally understand that this things isn’t in the hand of Thrillophilia)

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.

Suryakanta Patil Goechala Trek, Sikkim, 2020
Excellent
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.

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. 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.

Though Dzongri trekking is a short trek of 11 days in West Sikkim, it is quite challenging because of altitude acclimatization. But the package includes an overnight stay in a local hut in Tshoka village that will help you to adapt to the change in weather. The accommodation is quite comfortable and includes all the basic amenities.

With an amazing customer support team who is always available to solve your queries, you can easily enjoy your magnificent and soak in the natural beauty.

Amritambu Nambeesan Singalila Trek, Sikkim 2020
Superb
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.

Very Good
It was overall a good tour to have on a new year. There were few goods and few bads which I want to mention. When we reached Gangtok from Bagdogra, the hotels provided were very good and it was easy to register yourself there. Highlight of the tour was that we got the permit for Nathula which we covered on Day 2 along with Changu Lake and Baba Mandir. We came to know that Gurudongmar was not accesible and we were given the very basic option to see the local sightseeing of Gangtok which is no where equals to Gurudongmar Lake. We should have been given an option equivalent to GD Lake. The hotels at Lachen and Lachung were below average. The planning for meal was not adequate as we have to call again and again to the organizer to check what is included and what is not as the plan was changing very frequently. Deep helped us in every way possible but it could have been more organized and they should have a back up plan ready when one plan fails which was not there. Another disappointment was that we failed to see Yumthang Valley too due to weather issue(which we can blame on Kismet and not on organizers ofcourse). It was overall a good trip but it could have been better. The group was very understanding. I want to give it a 3.5 rating but there is no option for .5 so I went with 3. Here are some pictures.
