About the operators: Thrillophilia ties up with trek operators for this amazing trek. The team that carries the group is well trained, well versed and allows the trekkers to focus on their trekking. To provide service at such altitude with smile on face is bliss. They also have some hidden gems planned during the trek for people to be pleasantly surprised. Our trek guide Premtuk is an old hand and lives in Yaksum region. His ability to guide the team as well as captain the support staff was fantastic. He also made sure that trekkers were absolutely taken care off. He had excellent support staff and 12 horses to make sure that we had a glitch-free day’s and nights. Tenzing, vijay and others who worked tirelessly and with laughter all the time made the time memorable. About the trek: this trek offers variety for a serious trekker. The trails and paths are not the same throughout or even different times of the year. It has varied degree of difficulty and hence one needs to be physically and mentally prepared to harness the strength. One connects to self and nature throughout and comes back rejuvenated. It’s not just the moments of seeing sunrise or the summit from various points or watching Mt Pantim alone that takes your breath away but also the journey. It’s a pilgrimage to your own inner self that one ends up discovering. Finally few words of suggestions: for city dwellers who come for this trek, it’s a great idea to come and stay In yuksam few days in advance and do some of other amazing treks. Not only it helps in acclimatisation but also allows you to soak in local culture and food.

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.

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 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.

Located in the state of Sikkim, this Goecha La trek is my dream and desire come true. This trek is a treat to all the adventure lovers who are in our country or visit our country. This place is nestled midst colourful, unique, and vibrant flora and fauna. This trek also paves way to the astounding Kanchenjunga National Park that can be visited in a day. This trek is an opulent beauty as it opens doors to murky valleys, snow clad mountain peaks, astonishing lakes, and lovely rivers in Sikkim. I was just marvelled at the spectacular beauty of this place.

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.

Pretty challenging trek and I am a professional trekking enthusiast who practically does this for a living. Slippery at times, but the trek will leave you satisfied and energized, maybe more than you have ever felt in your life. Really enjoyed our experience here and we will definitely make it happen again.

The trek from Kokchurang to Tshoka had us on a mountain for almost a whole day as we slipped, trekked and trudged along those huge mountains. We had all our gears strapped on tight as us mountaineers made way for the top of the mountains. We headed up to several peaks while we were here and it was our trek to Sachen that made me really proud to be part of this challenge.

Trekking a distance of 54 kms is no joke, and we realized it the hard way. There are many wonders here to explore, and after our long climb, that one view of the Kanchenjunga pass left us breathing heavily and our eyes teared up. Truly amazing experience. Was quite a revelation to us all.

The trek from Lamuney to Goecha la had us completely exhausted but so happy like never before. The trek was absolutely enthralling and we trekked almost 16,000ft before we reached the top of the peak. Had an amazing time here.

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.

To do or not to do was the first thought in my mind when I heard about the Goechala trek. I mean 11 days (9 days of trekking) and that too with such difficulty level was the nut to crack. But after joining the trek, I really found it as one of the must do treks in the country. From Yuksom to Tshoka, it was just a wow experience. Every day in the trek was more enthralling than the previous day. Amazing experience in the Indian Himalayas!

Well, Goechala trek is not for everyone. Only a trekker with enough trekking experiences should go for it; this is what I realised after covering this 11 days Goechala trek map. Though it is one of the challenging treks in India, you will definitely enjoy every moment while on it. The Himalayas comes alive in this trek.

We were a group of 10 members and other 7 members joined us in Yuksom. From the second day to the tenth day, we all trekked with immense energy and enthusiasm and finally crossed the mark of 16,000 feet. The guides were very friendly and had amazing knowledge about the region. All thanks to them for making Goechala trek so awesome for us.

If you haven't yet done the Goechala trek, you are still aloof about the magical beauty of the Indian Himalayas. Just pack your bags, and get started man. Just make sure, you have some hardcore experiences of trekking and do not forget to take a good quality camera as there are millions of things to capture with the lenses. It is a 10 on 10 trek.

Goechala trek was the one, I was planning since a long time and finally became part of it last year. Great experience all through the end. Believe me or not, the entire Goechala trek route has something or the other for the trekkers. Scenic views of the Himalayas, Kanchenjunga Peak and others

Goechala trek cost truly makes it for its value and fame. The entire trek route revolves around enthralling destinations that can be best enjoyed through trekking only. Also to add here, the kind of guides and staff they provided for our group was simply superb.
