Sikkim: The five treasures of High Snow
Get up close with a magnificent 8000+er, the Kanchenjunga. The name means the five treasures of high snow. But there are many more to discover.
What iO thinks
The trek to the Kanchenjunga Base Camp is quite famous. But there is still a route that not many take. As you trek to greater heights, forests give way to alpine meadows and views of junipers give way to Bharals. Amongst wildlife peaks and high altitude lakes, there is a lot to be seen. This is all about nature. You are trekking through a National Park with Yuksom, your base, being the last village. This is not technical and if you can run a 5k, you can easily accomplish this trek. The best time is April when the rhododendrons are in bloom.
