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.

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.

Wao I just loved the trekking and sight seeing in singhalia!! Those high mountainous peaks and the beautiful lakes will definately steal your hearts.

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.
