Why we like it ...

The Goechala Pass trek through the Himalayan Mountains is one of the most popular and romantic treks in India. Located in Sikkim, this trail explores one of the most natural forests in the Himalayas, and sits in the lap of the Kangchenjunga Mountain: the 3rd highest mountain in the world and Sikkim’s sacred mountain. From the Indian side, the Goechala Pass is the closest point from where to view the magnificent Kangchenjunga Mounntain.

Trekking in Sikkim has its unconquerable charm with lush verdant valleys, lovely orchards, a large variety of flora and fauna, and dense forests that never fails to allure visitors from around the world.

Note: This trek is graded as active as it's an 8-day long walk through the up-and-downhill of the Himalayan terrain of solitude.
