Goecha La Trek

Goecha La is a high mountain pass in the Himalayan range. The trek starts at the sleepy little town of Yuksom in West Sikkim. The town is very pretty with lush green surroundings and a salubrious weather to go with it. You can shop for all supplies at Yuksom before beginning the trek as this is the only place where you will get to buy all your necessary items.

Furthermore, before trekking the Goecha La, you will have to do two things, first make an entry at the local police station and second pay the permit fees at the forest check post. Usually the agencies take care of all these hassles and you will not have to bother about them.


The first phase of the trek to Goecha La will take you from Yuksom to Sachen. Yuksom is situated at an altitude of 5,700 feet and Sachen is situated at an elevation of 7, 200 feet. The trekking trail passes through a route of immense natural beauty. You will come across lush green fields, valley of the Rathong River and thick forests. From Sachen you will need to climb ahead to Tshoka which is at an altitude of 9,650 feet.

This trek is quite enjoyable in the initial phase but becomes tryingly steep towards the later phase. On reaching Bakhim, you can enjoy a spectacular view of the Yuksom valley. As you trek on ahead, you pass through Dzongri and Phedang. You will also be able to enjoy the beauty of some of the densest rhododendron forests in India and get a breathtaking view of the highest mountains in the Himalayan range. You will pass through the beautiful Samiti Lake which will mesmerise you with its sparkling blue waters.

The entire journey from Yuksom to Goecha La is a treat to the eyes. Despite being a test of physical stamina, the route is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful routes that you can come across while trekking in the Himalayas.

Best Season: September- November & March-April
Difficulty Level: Moderate to Challenging
Max. Elevation: 5002 m

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.

The trekking experience was good. This trek is every trekker’s dream trek. This was the most adventurous trek that I have ever been on. From river crossing to swimming, from trekking to hiking, from walking to camping, this trek has it all. We went on this trek as a gang of three people. We were worried that we might feel left out as most people trek as a bigger gang, but we were in for a fun ride. There were several small gangs and we all ended up like a big gang of buddies. The camp was awesome and super fun. The various experiences we got during this trek will always be cherished in my memory. This was and will remain to be the best trek I ever had.
