We all have watched Barfi, seen the Darjeeling dramatic toy train that chugs along the delightful views of the undulating hills and tea plantations, enabling an impeccable sightseeing tour. West Bengal boasts a colorful heritage and tradition that is also a center of literature to be witnessed. Contrary to its name, it sits in the eastern land of India enveloped by the Bay of Bengal. The exuberant celebration that takes place during Durga Pooja in the capital city of Kolkata, fondly called as the city of joy is a sight to behold and October is a month to embark on a sightseeing tour of Kolkata. Situated on the banks of river Hooghly, Kolkata is flavored with ethnicities and cultures. People often travel for having delectable food trip to Kolkata and is loved for its street style fashion. For the ones seeking mountains and woods need to take a tour to the quaint hamlets of Kalimpong and Darjeeling that has offbeat sights of West Bengal.


It is indeed a dreamland when you enter the hill stations of West Bengal, touring through the tea plantation farms and traveling to the highest peaks of Darjeeling which have an impressive cloud walking image are few of the things that are really unreal and dreamy. West Bengal has been a buzzing spot for Bollywood shoots, which are spotted on a sightseeing tour. It’s the eating capital of India, you get to devour on sweets and meat and a lot more things which can be experienced while you are on your tour. Nothing is going to dig a hole into your pocket if you show your street smart skills in Bengal and speak with utter sweetness because after all, the word 'sweet' stands for Bangla and that is evidently visible on a sightseeing tour.

I decided to do a solo Himalayan trekking in a spur of the moment, on a Sunday afternoon. I randomly googled for the organisers and Thrillophilia were the only guys to come back with answers. They suggested me to do the Sandakhphu trek as it was my first trek as well. And I am glad they did.I would recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for an adventure as the difficulty is easy to moderate. This lets you experience not only the rich flora and fauna of the region but also gives a glimpse of the lifestyle of the pahadi people. Finally, as we watched the Mountain Goddess Kanchenjunga shining in all its grandeur, at Sandakphu, we felt every bit of the effort is worth it.

A big big thankyou to my friends to accompany me, our tour guide to led us the beautiful heaven and my parents to finance this holiday trip, really I loved being there!!!! Otherwise I would have missed such an awesome experience of my life. The mountains peaks should not be missed at any costs. Moreover Up and above the clouds, this trek is a mixed affair of fascinating heights, lush greeneries, exotic wildlife and scenic villages. Enjoyed the panorama of the other peaks and the evergreen valleys.

It is difficult to explain my entire experience in few words. It was an awesome experience which I would cherish my whole life.. of course it's the the only highest place in West Bengal at an altitude of 3636m that is inhabited. Places we covered throughout the trek starting from maneybhanjan include Tumbling kalipokhri to sandakphu and then all the way down timburee and Therewise srikhola. Loved each and evry minute that I spent on this trek.

What I liked the most about this trek is the variation in the terrains. At diffferent places, it offers totally different experience. Moreover, this is one of the treks that offered me fascinating views of Kanchenjunga, Mt Everest, Lhotse and Makalu peaks on the same go. Once, I was at the peak, I felt hyptonised by the beauty around. In this region, it is indeed the best treks to take.

For me, this was a treasure trove journey. Though Sandakpu is the main attraction, I also enjoyed the panorama of the other peaks and the evergreen valleys. Terrains might get difficult at times and to overcome them, you have to be quite careful and attentive towards the guides and instructors. Do not miss the sunrise view over the Kanchenjunga Peak at any cost.

We were a group of 5 people and we weren't so sure about how the trip will be because: But it turned out to be an awesome experience, April is the best time to see the rhododendrons blooming. However, starting from the landrover ride uphill, the short 5 km trek in the steep uphill to the snowfall and the other treks was something that we enjoyed the most.
