Darjeeling Tours and Treks

darjeeling tour

Introduction

Darjeeling town is strung out over a ridge, just a valley away from Sikkim. It still attracts traditional tourist for its well touted tea gardens and the old British Raj residual charms. Until beginning of the 18th century the area was under Sikkimese Raja. Then after the invasion of Gurkhas from Nepal, the British East India Company intervened and acquired concession of the area from the Raja of Sikkim to set up a sanitarium for its troops due to its favorable weather conditions. Development was rapid with Tea Garden and trade with Tibet and India.

Today, almost 50 years after the British regime, Darjeeling still flourishes with tea gardens and seasonal tourist and retains to this day the old charm and flavor of that "never ending Victoria era.

Singelela Range Trek

These treks climb steeply, for two days, to reach the Sandakphu- Phalut ridge at an altitude of 3600 meters. Enroute there are the lovely forest of the Sigelila national park and the view point of the Kanchendzonga range towering over a basin of silver firs and rhododendrons, in the fore ground. In the West at a distance of 160 kms, the peaks of the Everest Group are visible , while to the East lie the Chola Range, with passes leading to Tibet.

The walk from Sandakphu to Phalut is gentle, through meadows, forest, wild flowers, and Himalayan flora, with the Mighty peaks always in the background . The knee wobbling descent to Rimbick is through forests, flora and mountain streams. Mar to may is best seasons for flora in bloom, whilst Oct-Dec are ideal for views
