The hustle and bustle that you find in the busy cities of West Bengal has a characteristically Bengali vibe to it- a vibe made up of the colourful displays of sweets in the shops, and the tantalizing smells of fish being cooked in the midst of the chaos caused by people rushing to get to their destinations and shops spilling their wares everywhere.

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.

Darjeeling is not just a honeymoon place anymore. I kept reading about Singalila Trek, and when I suggested it to my friends, they brushed it off as a honeymoon spot. However, after a lot of convincing and making them read travelogues of this spot, we took this tour. It was simply brilliant. The trek is quite difficult and the toughness is more due to the chilling weather. I even faced a little bit of breathing issues in the middle, but the trek leader was helpful. The Sikkim tour that accompanied after this trek was more of a relaxed and laid back one. I loved the trek as well as the trip.

Singalila trekk is not so famous in our north side, actually we have always heared of manali, leh and uttrakhand but this should be included in the list really, The place has too much to offer the high mountainous peaks, the wild vegetation, beautiful lakes and very friendly beautiful people. I was very delighted to visit this place. And offcourse Darjeeling stole my heart away.
