    The people of Sikkim often assert that North Sikkim is as stunning as Switzerland. We may hear it when we will get there, or see it repeatedly mentioned in various brochures and guide books. Several decades earlier, a European guest of our late king had passed a remark to that order, and now the legend lives. True to this erstwhile visitors remark, many others after him have also reiterated the fact that North Sikkim is undeniably truly attractive. The views are ever-changing; along the way include rustic wayside hamlets bounded by terraced fields, monasteries, torrential mountain streams with lush green forests everywhere. The journey to the North follows the North Sikkim Highway. This drive is an exploratory drive, which passes through high hills and deep river valleys that ends up in the foothills of the Himalayan Treks where gentle meadows overlook snow-clad Rocky Mountains. Green Lake Trek in North Sikkim is very luxurious as it also includes Liaison Officer from the Home Department, Government of Sikkim and Liaison Officers from the Indian Army accompanying the group on the sikkim trek, all the expenses has to be borne by the agency, which is not required for other regions.

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.

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.

We started our trip from the Bagdogra airport and then went Gangtok that almost took two hours on road. We stayed there for two days, because we had to explore that place to our fullest. We visited many awesome places of Gangtok, wao ita a wonderful city always crowded by tourists. after that we headed for Dzongri via Yuksom and Tshoka. Trekking at Dzongri was very adventurous trip for all of us. From there we went to Darjeeling the ultimate beauty. I never expected that these places would be so amazing.

For those who want to join this trek, they must have prior trekking experience. And if possible they should have Himalayan trekking experience. Once done, they can sign in for the much acclaimed Goechala trek and enjoy the thrill of the Himalayas. Only make sure, while booking, the trek operators provide you with all the required info. I would personally suggest to book with this organiser as they have been very reliable and trust worthy to me during my other treks as well.

A full 10 out of 10 for the Green Lake Trek in Sikkim. Over the 13 days of this enthralling trek, I and our entire group members were all so captivated by the beauty of the Himalayas of Sikkim. If you are planning for this one sooner or later, be sure to experience a lot of variations in the terrains. At places, they might appear easy and other places it might be a bit challenging to strenuous. In a nutshell, it was an amazingly awesome experience we all had.

Not my first mountaineering expedition, but I can proudly say that the Goecha la pass trek was by far one of the best that I have ever been on with my friends. The tour guides were very friendly and made sure we were well fed and taken care of. The temperature was favourable for most of the time, even though there were sudden drops in the temperature. Once in a lifetime experience, this was an amazing holiday trip; definitely my top 5 recommendations.
