    This trek is considered to be the holy grail of Indian trekking, and it is done so for the right reasons. This trek is sheer brilliance. It is neither tough nor too easy, but this trek is definitely unique and great. Which other trek offers the view of Mt. Everest and Kanchenjunga at the same time? This trek does, and it definitely is the best trek to take with your gang of buddies. I took this trek 2 months back, and I was super glad about it. This was a well-organized and a very pleasant trek, in short. Highly recommended.

    Sandakphu offers views of the Kanchenjungha that have to be seen to be believed. All along the way nature takes your breath away with her loveliness, and when you finally get to Sandakphu it's like a grand climax. Peak upon peak surrounds you along half your horizon. had an awesome experience.

    I went on a trek to Sandakphu and Phalut in Nov 2015. The region is at India-Nepal border. Sandakphu and Phalut are respectively the highest and second highest peaks in West Bengal. I'd say this should be on top of list for adventure and thrill-seekers and Himalayan-lovers.

    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.
