Trip Details

1

On arrival at New Jalpaiguri Rly station/ Bagdogra Airport, you will be received by our representative and commuted to the beautiful hill Gangtok in Sikkim along the river Teesta( 4 – 5 hours).  Overnight stay in Hotel in Gangtok. 

2

Gangtok-Yuksom
After breakfast, we shall drive to Yuksom
, the first capital of Sikkim established in 1642 AD (6 hours) via Ravangla. Enroute, we shall visit Temis Tea Gardens and Phamrong waterfalls. Overnight stay in Hotel in Yuksom.

3

TREK BEGINS:  Yuksom (5,700 feet) to Sachen (7,200 feet)  9 kms/5 hours

After an early breakfast we start our trek through dense forests and mountain streams. For about 3 hours, the trail is highly undulating with a very gentle rise in altitude till one reaches the third bridge. Half an hour before the third bridge is Sachen, a place where grazers sometime stay.  Overnight camp at Sachen.

4

Sachen (7,200 feet) – Tshoka (9,650 feet) via Bhakim (8,636 ft)  6 kms/ 4 hours

The trail is a continuous steep climb before one reaches Bakhim. The area around Bakhim is a good place for bird watching. A steep uphill climb of 2 hours till we reach Tsokha, where we spend the night.  Overnight camp at Tshokha

5

Tshokha 9,689 ft to Dzongri 12,981 ft via Phedang 12,068 ft  8 kms/6 hours

The climb up to Phedang is gentle, through wooden logs, which are placed for the easy accessibility of the Dzos (pack animals). One can see the transition from the coniferous to the Rhodendron forests as one proceeds along this trail. This is one of the best trails for bird watching. With beautiful brilliantly colored Fire tailed Sunbird flitting around in almost all the Rhododendrons. The trail from Phedang to Dzongri starts off with a more or less flat walk for about an hour followed by half an hour of relatively steep climb and then finally half an hour climb down through an undulating and winding trail. The last half an hour is through sparse vegetation. A day of uphill walks through lush rhododendron & fir forests. Dzongri commands a panoramic view of the snow capped mountain peaks. 

6

Dzongri 12,981 ft  to Dzongri top 13,676 ft.

A walk to Dabla Khang( DzongriTop) in the wee hours of the morning provides one of the most magnificent view of the mountains and the whole range of the peaks can be seen.
Day free at leisure. Overnight stay in a tent.

 Dzongri to Tshokha 8 kms/ 4-5 hours

After breakfast, we shall retrace and descend our way back to Tshokha. Overnight Camping at Tshokha.

8

Tshokha to Yuksom via Bhakim and Sachen  16 kms/ 5-6 hours

Retrace your way from Tshoka to Yuksom. Its much faster and easier than your trek up. Sachen comes up quickly being a pure descent. From Sachen the trail goes up and down generally losing altitude. We shall get back to our Trekking Starting point at Yuksom. END OF TREK.
