About This Place
Sandakphu and Phalut respectively are the highest and second highest peak of West Bengal. This trek can easily be considered the holy grail of Indian Trek due to its moderate level of difficulty and the fact that there is no other trek which offers the panoramic view of four of the five highest peak in the world which includes Mt. Everest (8848m), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m) and Makalu (8463m). And if its not enough, the trek offers a view of Sleeping Buddha formed by the magical alignment of Mt. Kumbhakarna and Kanchenjunga along with other peaks. The trail passes through Nepal and India where you would find yourself to be at the border of India and Nepal without knowing it. The stays at teahouse and walk through stone laden paths lined with Rhododendrons and Magnolia is a memorable experience. The ridges, alpine meadows and great views of Darjeeling, Nepal from top will never fail to keep you in awe and if you are lucky enough you might see Red Panda along the way at Singalila National Park
