Overview

Welcome to a definitive trek in Darjeeling -  Singalila Ridge Trek! Only two hours from the city, the great way starts. Although not a far drive from the city, the path appears as though it is in no place, as you navigate from edge to edge. The beautiful Singalila Ridge interfaces the excellent Himalaya of Nepal to India. The feature of the trek is strolling this edge to Sandakphu (11,929 feet), the most noteworthy point in West Bengal, where you get stunning perspectives on the most elevated tops on earth.


Ascend from your tranquil sleep at Sandakphu and make a short movie to a perspective. From here, see Mount Everest (29,028 ft), Kanchenjunga (28,170 ft), Lhotse (27,940 ft), and Makalu (27,825 ft) in the entirety of their magnificence. It is truly outstanding, if not the best mountain in India. What another place would you be able to see 4 of the 5 most noteworthy tops on the planet in one clearing view?


Singalila National Park is one of India's best trekking regions. The scene, natural life, individuals, and each other piece of the experience make Singalila special and adorable. The path starts from Manebhanjan on the edges of Singalila National Park. Climb over and around the verdant, forested slopes before showing up at the desolate glades of Tumling and Kalapokhri. The mountains give a genuine feeling of point of view and we feel lowered just to be in their quality. Take a few minutes to simply respect them and take some photographs, however, photographs can't do this view equity.


The wonder doesn't stop. From Sandakphu to Phalut, the mountains stay with us. Indeed, the view from Phalut is about as entrancing as the day preceding. The fruitless open zone offers a route to an uncovered perspective of the lofty snow-topped pinnacles. In Phalut, we remain in a trekker's cabin, eye to eye with the terrific Himalayas. From Phalut, we trek through the beautiful view of Gorkhey and Timburey before recovering a ride to Darjeeling. In Darjeeling, we take you on a marvellous day voyage through the city's social attractions and top it off with a delightful supper.


Consistently on the trek (aside from at Phalut), we remain in teahouses possessed by neighbourhood families. This is one of the most important pieces of the trek. Find out about the way of life and individual families that run the cabins. At the homestay in Timburey, figure out how to make momos and other conventional neighbourhood top choices!


Best Time to Visit

The best seasons for this trek are Summer (April to June) and Autumn(October to November) when the climate conditions are moderately milder. The climate is charming, with moderate temperatures. During the favoured season, the climate gives the best for the trek; the climate stays moderate, and you can get the best out of the trek. The mountain scenes are without a doubt: staggering. The blossoming backwoods and shocking scene along the path are no less mysterious during the favoured season.
