Green Lake Sikkim Trek
Green Lake Trek is one of the hidden gems of Himalayas. This is not a regular trek. Few really attempts to it because of its remoteness. This is an experience that leads you right at the feet of Kanchenjunga, through a east to west trek starting from Lachen. The final destination is what it’s defined the Base Camp of Kanchenjunga (though you will probably not find famous mountaineers because the base camp where the expeditions start from is on the Indian side) at an altitude of 5,050 metres.
This Green Lake Sikkim trek is for Himalayan and Kanchenjunga lovers. It’s tough and remote. Terrain is uneven with a large variety of dense forests where beautiful rhododendron thrive. It’s heaven on earth.
When you arrive at the Green lake Trek the effort is definitely worthed. Trekkers can witness a fantastic view of Mt. Khanchenjunga. It is one of the most fascinating treks in Sikkim. Compared to Goechala Trek, the perspective of Kanchenjunga massif is different. You feel yourself in the heart of Himalaya.
If you love walking on less explored and challenging paths, then Green Lake trek is probably the best option for you.
Getting permits and organization of the trek is not easy. That is why this trek is ore expensive than others.
