Darjeeling Sandakphu – Singalila Ridge Trek Blog


Darjeeling Singalila Ridge Trek! Just 2 hours from the city, the amazing trails begin. It’s not far from town, but there doesn’t seem to be any trails to hike from ridge to ridge. The scenic Singalila Ridge connects India with the great Himalayas of Nepal. The highlight of this trek is trekking this ridge to Sandakpu trek  (3636 meters), the highest point in West Bengal. There you can admire breathtaking views of the highest peaks on earth.
