Darjeeling Singalila Trek

Overview

The eastern end of the great Himalayan chain, and its lush foothills, is one of the least visited parts of this magnificent mountain range. After two nights in the grand old hill station of Darjeeling, we embark on this classic Himalayan trek which follows the Singalila Ridge with truly stupendous views of Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), the world’s third highest mountain. Along the way you'll have the chance to experience the culture and everyday life of the local people.

More Information

The trip starts in Delhi from here we fly to Bagdogra and then drive into the hills to reach the colonial resort of Darjeeling – a hilly town surrounded by tea plantations and served by the famous ‘toy train’. After a two-night stay in this beautiful place where we get an opportunity to take in the local sights, we drive to the trail head at Dhotrey. Following the India-Nepal border we gradually ascend to the dramatic landscapes of Singalila Ridge, one of the region’s classic trekking routes. Trekking high above the valleys through forests of rhododendron and magnolia there are numerous opportunities to gaze across the spectacular Himalayan panoramas. On a clear day it’s a treat to be at Sandakphu (3,636m.), the highest point of the trek where spectacular Kanchenjunga (8,586m) is seen staring at us. Further ahead we can also see three more of the world’s five highest mountains; Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,512m) and Makalu (8,462m). We pass through villages with friendly people and follow ancient paths on this beautiful circular trek.

We descend through Mulley, Samaden and Rimbik, large Sherpa settlements, and then travel by road to the lively hill town of Kalimpong where we end our trek and visit its bustling bazaar. We then head to the bustling town of Gangtok, the new capital of Sikkim.

5 Stars

This was an Exceptional holiday, that exceeded my expectations. The tour Guides were fantastic, nothing was to much trouble for them, they made this trip special.

After many years of wanting to visit India, Active India was recommended by some friends who had made a similar trip last year. From the outset this company was excellent from the planning and fine tuning of our special holiday right through the trip until its conclusion. Drivers and guides were excellent and hotels were as we had booked- some good 3 stars and some beautiful havelis and 4 stars. The company even had a whatsapp group set up to provide instant help with anything that came up. We travelled through Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Kerala. It was a fascinating and richly cultural experience. Active India is an excellent company which has been in existence for 20 years and we would highly recommend them.

This is the second trip we’ve done through Active India and with good reason. They are very flexible and responsive tailoring our trip specifically following my requests in advance but adding their suggestions advice and expertise of the areas we visited. All team members from all offices checked ahead to ensure everything went smoothly and were on hand if it didn’t (which was rare). They even set up a WhatsApp group so I had confidence and contact should I need it at all times. Everyone from the managing director down cared that we had the best time smoothly run to itinerary and that really matters. It’s what sets them ahead of other tour companies. Highly recommend as I have utmost trust and faith in this company following 2 successful wonderful trips to 2 completely different areas in amazing India. So it’s thank you to Ravi Tickoos Heena and all the team but for me it’s a special thanks to Priya who always goes above and beyond.
