Sikkim Trail, India
This spectacular, moderately difficult trail takes you through a rhododendron region that borders Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet, and is enriched by Buddhist culture. Starting in Gangtok, the trail takes you to the iconic Rumtek monastery, the only tea estate in the state Temi, through picturesque Ravangala and Yuksam, the stunning vistas of the Kanchenjunga mountain range to Pelling and the Holy Lake at Khecheopalri, and on to Darjeeling. Experience the warmth of the local people, sample delicious momos and chhang along the way, and make a wish at Sikkim’s holiest lake.
