Wilderness Trek in Sikkim

Yuksam-Dzongri-Gochala–Kasturi Odal-Tashiding Trek and Tour

Gantok City Tours Wilderness Treks in Sikkim can be a wonderful experience which is an antidote to city stress of daily life and memories are cherished lifelong. While trekking one relishes the pure air and the silence of the wilderness and feels the awakening of senses dulled by urban living. As one walks through the vales and dales and past quaint villages, mountains take up strange and wonderful shapes and the beauty of the Himalayas unfolds itself before the visitor. While trekking one can enjoy the exquisite beauty of identifying peaks, mountains, rivers and places around that becomes a good pastime. And whether one can climb the next hilltop becomes more important than anything else in life.

Although each and every nook and corner of Sikkim i.e. from the sultry tropical forests in the south to the howling wilderness in the north and from the razor-edged Singelila range in the west to the undulating Chola range in the east, all these are a trekkers paradise.
