• Summary of Sikkim Green Lake Trek

    Max Altitude: 4935 Mts
    Best Time: April to June & Sep to Nov
    Difficulty: Moderate Trek

    This is a very picturesque trail which combines natural beauty with spectacular views of high peaks. There are vast tracts of thick forest, with several varieties of rhododendrons, other colourful flowers, and birds and many waterfalls on both sides of the trail. Kangchenjunga was one of the first peaks to be attempted by expeditions before world war two. As Nepal was closed ,the approach from Sikkim, via the Zemu Glacier, was followed instead. Pre war Everest expeditions also passed through North Sikkim and this trail was part of their route. Today, it is still largely unexplored country as not many parties have been allowed across to Green Lake.
