Undoubtedly the highlight of West Bengal and the gem of the country, Darjeeling is a town that resides in the himalayan foothills. With a backdrop of mt. Kanchenjunga, the highest peak in india towering over the azure sky, Darjeeling is rightly called the queen of hills. Vast tea estates seems like emrald green ribbons spread across the steep mountain ridges. When you aren’t gazing open-mouthed at Kanchenjunga, you can decide to engage in a trek that will leave such an impact on your life that your perspective will change entirely. Sandakphu is one of the most preferred treks India has to offer. Being the highest peak in West- Bengal it provides a panoramic view of 4 of the highest peaks in the world; Everest, Kanchor zonda, lhotse, makalu; the whole cluster of all these 4 together makes the sleeping budha.
