Best Trekking Tours in West Bengal

Head to the east of the country and you’ll enter West Bengal, a land where coastal hamlets and temples and palaces reign supreme. It’s also the land of the mysterious Sunderban tigers, majestic animals that instil awe and fear, and the Buxa Tiger Reserve that the striped creatures, elephants and civets call home. For trekkers, this is the perfect destination. Whether you want to trek through jungles, see waterfalls or pass tea plantations, make this your next holiday stop.

 

A trek to Sandakphu and Phalut is the best way to start your trip. You’ll travel through untamed trekking paths and enter Tumling and Tonglu, the latter being a high peak of the Singalila Ridge. You could then go on a jungle trek in Bamonpokhri, a reserve forest with thick vegetation, birdlife and tea gardens nearby. Kamala Falls inside Mahananda Wildlife Sanctuary is another great trekking destination. The stunning Shiv Temple featuring stalactites and stalagmites is also along the way. Take a refreshing dip in the lake before making your way back.

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.

The trek might sound easy, but it is really not for the amateur trekkers. Guys, make sure you know enough about the Himalayan terrains and all the quotients related to height. Also, the vendor you go along for the Goecha La trek also matters a lot. If you can, try to book with Thrillophilia or directly with their app. For our group, we booked it only 15 days prior the trek, but while we went to Bagdogra, we found everything on place and properly arranged. All the best for the new aspirants of Goechala trek.

Trekking through the entire Goechala trek route was not so easy...but then that was the real fun of trekking. Every single move on the trek got us closer to the charm of the snow-capped peaks. The evergreen forest and the colourful views were also unbelievable. Had awesome moments with the crew members. Good going guys.

This was an expedition we went for when me and a few of my friends were visiting Sikkim. This trek not only taught us about ourselves but also brought all of us a lot closer together. I highly recommend to go for this trek if you are on a holiday with friends. But one needs to consult a physician before going on this trek since it can get challenging after a point of time.
