... previous next...
Day 1 : Delhi Arrival
On your arrival at the international airport in Delhi, you will be meet & received by representative of The Travel Makers and helped to check into your hotel. Relax and fresh up. Later transfer to visit Old City of Delhi.

OLD DELHI - A sightseeing tour of Old Delhi would entail visiting the Raj Ghat - the memorial site where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated; Jama Masjid - the largest mosque in India. Back to Hotel. Overnight Stay.
 
Day 2 : Darjeeling - Yuksam [ 123 km / 6-7 hrs.]
In the morning drive to Yuksam via a beautiful valley. On the way you will find dense forest, lush green meadows, waterfalls and much more. Upon arrival at Yuksam set out camp for dinner and overnight stay.
 
Day 3 : Yuksam - Bakkhim [ 16 km / 5-6 hrs.]
We walk gently uphill, following the Rathong River's gorge, through dense mixed jungle with magnolia, rhododendron, ferns and several varieties of orchids, brightly colored birds, and the occasional monkey. After an hour or so we cross the Paha Khola bridge, (1,733 mts /5685 ft). There is a swimming spot by a waterfall (for those who dare!) after two hours, and we can stop for lunch by a bridge over stream.

On arrive at the lodge at Bakhim. We will either stay in the Tourist Hostel, or sleep in our tents. This hostel is often occupied by Himalayan Mountain Institute students on rock-climbing courses. This is a long trekking day and you should expect to be pretty tired by the time you arrive at Bakkhim. Dinner and overnight stay at the camp.
 
Day 4 : Bakkhim - Phedang [ 5 km / 4 hrs.]
We begin today’s walk by trekking for about one hour up to the picturesque village of Tshoka. Tshoka is home to a colony of Tibetan refugees who have erected a small monastery by a small lake. A fairly steep climb above Tshoka takes you into beautiful rhododendron forests, and you continue along a well-defined uphill path to Phedang (approx. 2/3 hours from Tshoka). Today we will be doing a shorter trail since we will be gaining much altitude. Dinner and overnight stay at the camp.
 
Day 5 : Dzongri
Early risers can get up before dawn to climb to a vantage point on a ridge above the campsite to watch the sunrise on Khangchendzonga, Kabru, Pandim, Rathong, and many other peaks of the Khangchendzonga range. Full day excursion to Laxmi Pokhari. The trial first goes through rhododendron bushes and pasture land for about an hour to Chamaray. From here it is a gradual ascent to Laxmi Pokhari, a big lake cupped in a deep crater. Here you will get good view of Khangchendzonga range, Pandim, Narsing, Kabur, Kabur dome, Koktang etc. If you reach Laxmi Pokhari early and feeling physically fit, an excursion towards Kabur rock will be a rewarding experience. Back to Dzongri. Dinner and overnight stay at the camp.
 
Day 6 : Dzongri – Bikhbari [ 12 kms / 4-5 hrs ]
The trail first ascends gradually for about half an hour & then descends till we reach a crossroad. The trail on the left goes down to Zamlingang. We follow the trail to the right, which is a flat walk throughout. Dinner and over night stay at the camp.
 
Day 7 : Bikhbari - Chaurikhang - Rathong Glacier
It is a gradual ascent all the way to the base camp. This is the Kanchenjanga Base Camp, which is also the site where the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute of Darjeeling conducts its advanced mountaineering courses. You can get close views of Frey's peak, Koktang, Kabur and Rathong from here. Return to Bikhbari. Dinner and overnight stay at the camp.
 
Day 8 : Bikhbari - Bakkhim
In the morning trek back to Bakkhim with packed breakfast. Dinner and overnight stay at the camp.
 
Day 9 : Bakkhim – Yuksam
In the morning trek back to Yuksam. After lunch trek to Dubdi monastery, ‘the hermit’s cell, which is situated on the top of a lofty hill one thousand feet above Yuksam. The fir-clad mountains behind provide a dramatic background. Founded by Lhatsun Chempo in 1701, it is the oldest monastery in Sikkim. After visiting the monastery descend to the site where the first King of Sikkim was crowned in 1641 by three lamas. Dinner and overnight stay at the camp.
