A spectacular trek in the Kanchenjunga region of Sikkim combined with a cultural tour in Bhutan. This is an exhilarating itinerary combining a spectacular trek in Sikkim with a journey to the Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan. Our introductory trek follows trails through magnificent rhododendron forest (in full bloom in May) to verdant yak grazing pastures where we camp beneath the magnificent backdrop of Kanchenjunga. In between we visit the renowned hill station of Darjeeling, the thriving capital of Gangtok and the legendary town of Kalimpong. Travelling to Bhutan we have opportunities for day walks to visit the ancient dzongs (forts) and Buddhist monasteries in the Paro and Thimphu valleys to appreciate the rich cultural heritage of the kingdom.

“Dear Ms Turner, I have just returned from an absolutely extraordinary, exciting, exhilarating, exceptional, exhausting trek to Everest Base Camp, and I cannot thank World Expeditions AND YOU enough for the amazing experience. Your attention to detail and communication in the lead-up was very thorough, but the real fun started with the very smooth transfer to the excellent Radisson Hotel through the absolute chaos of Kathmandu traffic! We were greeted by Samde Sherpa, who proved to be the perfect guide, with his extensive knowledge and care for the slower members of our group, and over the duration of the whole trek to Base Camp, I have only praise for World Expeditions organization, cleanliness of accommodation, and especially the delicious unexpected fresh food all along the trail. Fresh pizza was most unexpected at Dingboche, as were Tempura vegetables even higher up! We were fortunate to have almost perfect weather, ranging from a monsoonal downpour in Kathmandu, to crystal clear cold nights at altitude, which made it very easy to obtain some rather good photos. The porters cheerful disposition and cake making skills were much appreciated, they deserve very high praise indeed. Our Sirdar, Mani was the perfect considerate lead person who was always aware of the correct speed of our group, and never pushed us too hard. Overall, I have nothing but praise for World Expeditions organization, professionalism, and value, and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone wishing to go on a trip of a lifetime.”

“The trip was excellent from the pick-up to drop-off at Paro airport. Our guide, Dendup, was extremely knowledgeable, he explained Bhutanese Buddhism and could identify plants and birds of the area which made the trekking even more interesting. We camped by lakes and Tsongs, arriving at the campsites after the tents were set up and afternoon tea on its way, the cook and support did a superb job of feeding us. Thimphu Festival was so interesting and colourful. When in Paro and Thimphu we were taken to many sites that weren't even mentioned in the brochure and on the last day, dressed in national dress, we played the national sport of Archery. A really special treat. This was my fourth World Expeditions trip and each one gets better.”

“The trip was brilliant! Botswana is a wonderful country with lovely people and a vast variety of wildlife that can be observed in close proximity, without the crowds usually present at other destinations. The vehicle was very comfortable (plenty of leg room), and so were the tents (easy to assemble), The guide was highly skilled and experienced, which gave me peace of mind so I could focus on the beauty that surrounded me wherever we went, and the chef did wonders with the pretty limited supplies available. Will definitely be back!”
