Trekking in Sikkim

For trekking trails in Sikkim there is some Rules, Regulations and Fees because Indian National do not require any permit to visit  unrestricted areas in Sikkim, but they need an Inner Line Pemit, obtainable in Gangtok.  Foreigners technically can visit Gangtok, Rumtek, Pamayantse and Phodong for a period of 15 days, provided they have the Indian visa, but it is advisable to get a permit from the Indian Embassy while getting the visa. These permits can also be obtained at Bagdogra airport.  Foreigners who intend to trek in the Dzongri area of West Sikkim or the North Sikkim, can get the permit at the permit office in Gangtok, located next to the tourist office.

The trek from Pamayangtse to Dzongri, situated almost at the base of Kangchenzonga peak, is the most popular trail in Sikkim.  Though Indian nationals can go after obtaining special permit, on the other two trails foreigners are not allowed to go beyond Yumthang (in north Sikkim).

|Trek -I|  Dzongri Gochal La

The most popular, pleasnat and aveagely strenuous trek in Sikkim.  It starts from Pemayangtse and is reached from Gangtok by bus in 5h.  Dzongri and Gochal La lie S/SE of Kangchenzonga and close views of the great mountain and its neighbours are obtained. Pemayangtse Monastery is located at a secluded vantage point from where Pelling, the nearest village.

|Trek -II|  Gangtok Kangchenzonga Base

Gangtok-Kagchenzonga base (very strenuous) - The most adventuous and rewarding trek in Sikkim.  Zemu Glacier, to the E of Kanchenzonga, is the largest glacier in Sikkim.  Besides a very close view of the great mountain, there is a magnificent view of Siniolchu which as per Douglas Freshfield is the most beautiful peak in the world and a superb triumph of mountain architecture.

|Trek -III|  Theu La-Lungnak La-Lachen

From Zemu Glacier an old high altitude trade route leads northwards, crosses high passes of Tagchung La and Theu La, and after crossing the Naku La, drops down to Tibet.  This route branches N from a place between Zabuk ad camp Pt. 4570, climbing steeply to Tagchung La (5150m), a broad saddle from where Tagchung Khang (5303m) can be climbed easily.  The trail heads down N for 1000m to the bed of Thomphyak Chhu where Theulacha camp ground is located. Following a steep ridge N, camp about 150m below the pass ad climb to Theu La (5212m) next morning.  A panoramic view of Chomoyummo (6829m) to the NE and Chorten Nyima (6928m) to the NW  can be held from the Pass. Descend to Langbo, situated in a wide flat valley wihout a tree of shrub but where yaks graze peacefully.  Cross this Lhonak Valley platea, cross the Longbo Chu to Pukchhang, then on to Muguthang situated on the Naku Chhu.

From here the main trail continues northwards to Naku La.  The return trail heads E and after climbing gradually reaches Charub Lake.  From there, a steep climb to Lungnak La (5305m).  Now a very steep descent to Phoge and on to Thanggu situated on the left bank of Tista river.

|Trek -IV|  Gangtok-Rabang La-Gangtok

Gangtok-Rabang La-Gangtok (easy) - An easy low-altitude hike of five days which can be done at any time apart from the very hot and monsoon months of May to mid-August.  It leads trough typical Sikkimese villages, terraced fields and thick forest.  From Gangtok to Dikchu on the Tista river is a bus journey of 27km.  Dikchu (630m) to Mangkha (610m) is 12 km along the left bank of the Tista.  Crossing the river, the trail climbs steeply to Manjing (1525m), 5km from Mangkha.  Onwards to Rabangla (1980m) is an easy walk of 20km. From here a trail leading W continues to Pemayangtse.  Another trail turns S and climbs to the top of a ridge named Ghorlibhir (2370m), ffering a panoramic view of the Kangchenzonga massif.  From Ghorlebhir to Damthang (2072m) is an easy descent; forest rest house.
