Starting from Darjeeling, the trek runs through the border of India and Nepal and merges into the southern ridge of Kanchendzonga. The views of the Greater Himalayan Range from the Ridge especially at Phalut and Sandakphu are considered by many as the best in the world. From east to west the peaks of Nepal, Sikkim, Tibet and Bhutan line up in a amazing panoramic arc. The sight of Mount Everest (8850 m) Lhotse (8516 m) Makalu (8481 m) and Khangchendzonga (8598 m) four of the five highest peaks in the world are simply breathtaking.
