Goecha la Trek

    About Sikkim: Small but beautiful, Sikkim is situated in the eastern Himalayas. The state is spreader below the Mount Khanchendzonga    (8586 mts), the third highest mountain in the world, and revered by the Sikkim’s as their protective deity. With an area of 7,300 sq. kms and measuring approx. 114 kms from the north to south and 64 kms from east to west, the elevation ranges from 300 meters to over 8586 meters above sea level. Amidst the grandeur of the mountain peaks, lush valleys, fast flowing rivers, hills, Sikkim offers her visitors a rare and singular experience. Within a matter of hours one can move from the sub-tropical heat of the lower valleys to the cold of the rugged mountain slopes that reach up to the area of perpetual snow.

    The modern history of Sikkim begins from 1642 A.D. with the coronation of Phuntsog Namgyal as the first Chogyal or king of Sikkim in a tranquil pine covered hill in YuksomNorbugang in West Sikkim. The Namgyals were scions of the Mi-yak House in Kham in Eastern Tibet. It is said that there were three brothers, chiefs of Kham Mi-yak. A letter dropped from heaven
    directed the middle brother to go south towards Sikkim where his descendants were fated to rule. It was in Sakya that his eldest son single-handedly raised the pillars of the Sakya monastery and earned himself the sobriquet of ‘Khye Bumsa’( the strength of a lakh of men).
    Khye Bumsa also earned himself the hand of the daughter of the Sakya hierarch and settled in Chumbi Valley, which remained, for a long time, the epicenter of the later kingdom of Sikkim. TREKKING SEASON:-There are basically two trekking seasons in Goecha-la Kanchendzonga Trekking. Generally the first one begins in the middle of March and closes around first week of June. One has to be prepared for an occasional shower, which is very refreshing. The flowers in bloom compensate the summer haze. The second season begins around last week of September and goes on till December. The view during this period is excellent but it is quite cold
    and one may expect snowfall in certain regions.

    GENERAL INFORMATIONS CLOTHING:-As the trekking area ranges from 1870 m to 5000 m one has to carry clothes suitable for low tropical area to high mountain ranges like light woolen cloths i.e. sweater , Tee-shirts, shorts or comfortable pants to heavy pull-over, wind cheater, woolen cap, gloves etc. A raincoat is a must as the weather in the higher altitudes is difficult to predict.
