Welcome to the ultimate trek in Darjeeling – the Sandakphu Singalila Ridge Trek! Just two hours from the city, the wonderful path begins. Though not a far drive from the city, the trail seems like it is in the middle of nowhere, as you traverse from ridge to ridge. The scenic Singalila Ridge connects the grandHimalayas of Nepal to India. The highlight of the trek is walking this ridge to Sandakphu (3636 meters/11,929 feet), the highest point in West Bengal, where you get jaw-dropping views of the highest peaks on the planet.

Rise from your peaceful slumber at Sandakphu and make a short climb to a viewpoint. From here, see Mount Everest (8848 meters), Kanchenjunga (8586 meters), Lhotse (8516 meters), and Makalu (8481 meters) in all their glory. It is truly one of the best if not the best mountain view in India. Where else can you see 4 of the 5 highest peaks in the world in one sweeping view?

The eye-popping vista includes the peaks of Mount Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, and Makalu. Quaint villages and deep valleys below the ridge add to the grandeur.
