Sikkim, located in the north-eastern region of India, is a small state with a big heart. Travelling across this Himalayan state is particularly highlighted by the dramatic contouring of the scenery from thick woodlands to colourful meadows to few barren patches to the panoramic views of the snowcapped mountains. Sikkim is a state that has often been called a “Traveler’s Paradise”. In fact, the Lepcha word for Sikkim is ‘Nye-mae-el’ which roughly translates to “Paradise”.
The Green Lake Trek in Sikkim takes you to the base of Kanchenjunga, a sprawling green landscape, dotted with few alpine trees and a serene lake. The vicinity allows you to hold the beautiful horizon firmly, parted by the Kanchenjunga at 8,586 meters, Kanchenjunga West, also known as Yalung Kang at 8,505 meters, Kanchenjunga Central at 8,482 meters, Kanchenjunga South at 8,494 meters and Kangbachen at 7,903 meters. 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 colorful flowers, and birds and many waterfalls on both sides of the trail.
