What makes Goechala trek so extraordinary?

Enjoy the charm of the most exciting peaks as you start the exhilarating Goechala trek, from Mount Kanchenjunga to Mount Pandim and from the Three Sisters to the majestic Everest. Hiking in Sikkim, particularly on the Goechala trek, takes you through the beautiful alpine woodland and the dense covering of Rhododendron trees, which bloom in the misty Spring and become gloomy and cold in Autumn. It also offers various opportunities to experience the endemic flora and fauna in Kanchenjunga National Park.
There are three long suspension bridges, Pha Khola, Tshushay Khola waterfalls, and the Mentogang Khola River, that surprise on the way to Sachen. On a clear day, the Dzongri top at 4180 m provides a breathtaking 360-degree panorama of the North Kabru, South Kabru, Kabru Dome, Black Kabru, Kanchenjunga, Frey's Peak, Joupano, and Mount Pandim.
In addition, there is a high-altitude lake called Samiti Lake that guides the way to Goechala Pass, which is close to 16000 feet. The best time to do the Goechala trek is in Summer (April-May) or Autumn (September - November).
