Sikkim is a landlocked Indian state nestled in the Himalayas. It is overlooked by Kangchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world (after Mount Everest and K2) with an altitude of 8,586 metres.
Kangchenjunga is generally regarded as the highest mountain in India.
The trek will transverse through hills, valleys, streams, forest and ethnic villages at Barsey, Jorebutey, Kalijar and other areas.
[Betty Meerbeck, Trekker from Holland]:
"I am really excited I am here in Sikkim for already two weeks and I really love it. Yesterday we did a little tour by the schools and things like that. The people were so warm and I think it will become a really nice trip."
The trek will span around 15-18 kms along with exciting camp activities every morning.
Trekkers feel themselves closer to the nature and take it as a wonderful opportunity to explore the beauty of the state.
[Jorg Schmitt, German Trekker]:
"I like nature and I want to walk on the hills just to see the differences between the nature here in Sikkim and my home country because for example in my country there is no bamboo outside if I walk in the forest. I like walking and seeing the birds and everything and I am looking forward to see all those different things that are not existing in my country."
The sole objective of the programme is to provide an exclusive and rare opportunity to adventure lovers to explore the beauty of the Himalayas in Sikkim.
