Goechala Trek, Sikkim Tour PackagesSikkim or Denjong – the Valley of Fire – a wedge between Nepal in the west and Bhutan on the east – has some of the finest mountain and ravines sceneries in the world. A trek into Kanchenjunga group, the third highest in the world, fully repays the trekkers’ efforts. The clouds play a dramatic symphony as the traveler beholds vapour boil up silently out of the deep valleys taking fantastic shapes and suddenly the silence is broken by the sound of bells. Further a whiff of burning juniper steals the breath – a sudden puff of air blows aside the curtain of mist and fog revealing the threshold of the Holy monastery – one of 67 in Sikkim.

Trekking routes around the Kanchenjunga National Park start from Pemayangtse and run through terraced fields of barley and tablelands of apple orchards, then onto mossladen lush green forest of pines, firs, giant magnolias, rhododendrons, spruce and orchids – a naturalist’s paradise. One comes across crystal clear streams running through the lap of the Himalayas, clouds of butterflies and moths – sparking, fluttering and displaying their dazzling colour and personality. Intermingles with this is the chirrup, twitter and peeping of exotic Himalayan birds. As one climbs on with patience and pains are rewarded by the Sikkim Himalayas Kanchenjunga, Pamdim, Jopono and Nursing are some of the peaks that appears as a background to the scene.
