This trip combines two of the best treks in the eastern Himalaya. It starts with a moderate well-paced walk along the fabled Singalila Ridge, which straddles the border with Nepal. The ridge offers truly breathtaking views that take in the peaks of Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse and Kangchenjunga as well as stretching across the breadth of Sikkim to Chomalhari in Bhutan.
After a two day break from trekking and a welcome night in a hotel, we take to the trail again. The second part of the trek is more strenuous and climbs to the holy lake of Samiti and up to the Goecha La, a 4900m pass dominated by the majestic eastern wall of Kangchenjunga, the world’s third highest mountain, which is just 5km away.
