Trip description

The Singalila Trek

The Singalila ridge is one of India’s best hiking trails. The trek takes you along the Singalila ridge and runs down from Kanchenjunga ( 3rd highest peak in the world) itself. The trek is going through small villages and is known for being one of the most rewarding hikes for its outstanding backdrops of the entire Himalaya from Mount Everest in Nepal, to the Kanchenjunga in Sikkim and the legendary Chomolahari in Bhutan.

What’s included

  • All breakfasts are included.
  • six lunches and eight dinners.
  • Accommodation in double room/tent
  • for a single room/tent there is an extra surcharge of $550
  • Transport is fully covered and sorted, so that’s one less thing to worry about!
  • A fully speaking English tour guide, because we can’t have any of your questions un-answered.
  • A permit to enter the Sikkim District.

What our explorers are saying

“Fantastic!”

“It was absolutely amazing trekking the Singalila ridge! it was my dream for so long to hike up the Himalaya, and i couldn’t have picked a better opportunity. Our group was awesome and the guide knew all the locals in the villages, so they let us into their homes and shared their lives with us. Couldn’t have done it by myself.”
