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.

I am madly and deeply in love with Sikkim. I can't believe a place like this can be so beautiful and still people are unaware about it. Walking through narrow pathways and tiny hamlets on the way make this place all the more interesting and worth the effort.

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.

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.
