Why choose Goechala Trek?

The Goechala trek is a fascination and a dream for hundreds of thrill-seekers. It is located at the height of 16,207 feet and offers a close-up view of Mt. Kanchenjunga, the world's third-highest peak. The sunrise above the Kanchenjunga range is one of the most spectacular parts of the Goechala trek.
Even though hikers are not permitted to go all the way to the actual Goecha Pass, the views from ViewPoint 1 and Dzongri are priceless. In the early hours, the vista of the quiet waters of the Samiti lake and Mt Pandim's reflection in the lake is a visual feast. The path to Goechala is surrounded by pink and scarlet blossoms of rhododendron trees in April and May.
It's a lot of fun to walk through these jungles. Three suspension bridges Pha Khola, Tshushay Khola, and Mentogang Khola, will take you across three deep gorges, through which the Prekchu river runs. Seeing down into the deep gorge from these suspension bridges is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
