Singalila trek with Everest & Kanchendzonga: Singalila trail is the longest trek in the region. The trail covers the complete range of Singalila all the way from Uttarey village where the road ends. The trek starts along the Nepal border, even camping a night at the Nepalese side. Before reaching Goecha la pass, 5000m, you have to cross several isolated high mountain passes. Singalila is the only trail in the Himalayas from where you can get stupendous views of not only the Kangchendzonga range but also of the Everest range. The itinerary is designed to give a little introduction of Sikkimese Culture, Buddhism and life style.
