Pilgrimage to Kanchenjunga, Sikkim

Walk through rhododendron and pine forests on the Goecha La trek in Sikkim to witness amazing views of Kanchenjunga (8586m), the third highest mountain in the world.

The high mountains have always fascinated me and when there was an opportunity to lead a Yoga and Hiking retreat, i made sure that it was well planned! Who would want to miss out on trekking in the Himalayas in Sikkim. Dreaming of Rhododendron forests, high mountains and epic views of Kanchencjunga (8586m), the third highest mountain in the world, Goecha La trek is one of the best treks in the Indian Himalayas. 


Day 1


After battling some rough weather and late check in scares at New Delhi airport, we finally flew to our destination, Bagdogra in West Bengal. From the airport we, a motley group of 10 from Delhi, Pune and Udaipur, were bundled up into two SUV s and left for our trekking destination, Yuksom. This sleepy town had served as the ancient capital of Sikkim and it took us almost 8 hours to reach our hotel just in time for dinner. After a brief chat over dinner we all went to bed, tired after the long day.
