Goecha La Trek

From US$ 280 per person
  • No booking or credit card fees
  • E-ticket/Mobile voucher
Himalayas of Sikkim are different from the Himalayas in rest of India. What sets it apart are the trails, the mountains, the region’s culture and its people. And this sharp contrast makes Goecha La a must-do trail in India.

There’s one more thing – Goecha La is one the most romantic trails in India. This trek is perfectly set through the enchanting forests of Tsokha’s Rhododendron forests, snaking up the meadows of Dzongri and Thansing and resting by the startling blue waters of Samiti lake. All this in the looming presence of Pandim and Kanchenjunga.

Indiahikes teams are trekking to Goechala in the month May. Take advantage of this expedition to experience a truly romantic trail – the kind of which you will not see again.
