Details

The Uttarey Singalila trek in Sikkim is said to cover the political boundary between Nepal and Sikkim. This trek has a barren landscape, which is devoid of many trees and boasts of steep and rocky hills. The grassy meadow of Singalila adds delight to trekking at Singalila. It offers the majestic view of the Sikkim and Nepal Himalayas including a king of mountains Kanchenjunga. The trek offers various mountain peaks, lush green valleys, fast-flowing rivers, beautiful monasteries, and terraced hills. Sikkim offers its visitors a rare and exotic experience.

This new trek route falls entirely within Sikkim. We begin in the small village of Uttarey and trek to Chiwabhanjang on the Singalila ridge to continue on to Goechala. Opened as recently as the year 2000, this trail is not much frequented by trekkers. There are sections of narrow paths, ups and downs, and some scree walking but for the most part, the trek follows a good path used mainly by yak herders in Sikkim.

On this wilderness trail, we walk up towards what is actually the border between Nepal, Sikkim and West Bengal. Dotted with beautiful high altitude lakes and passing several passes, this trek gives the opportunity of viewing Mount Everest – Kanchenjunganot and many more. Only once at a specific high point but several times over the days as you cross the passes. This trail finally joins with the main west Sikkim trekking trail at Dzongri where the option is to continue to Goechala – the final viewpoint where the left shoulder of Kanchenjunga stands just 9km away as the crow flies or descend to Yuksom for those with time limitations. The advantage of this trek is that it is a round trip. Still, a relatively new trek, the Sikkim Ridge trek promises to be among the best with its crowning glory of Kanchenjunga seen from several vantage points along this trek.
