Trekking in Sikkim/DarjeelingTrekking In Darjeeling
The East Himalayas present perhaps the best trekking routes in the whole of India. Low altitude treks in the lower regions of Darjeeling are quiet easy and are particularly recommended for those tourists who like to take up a stroll at a leisurely pace. The Kalimpong-Relli trek through golden paddy fields, the Kurseong-Namsu trail through tea gardens and the Kurseong-Mirik trek are the main trails through low altitude areas.

Darjeeling-Batast-Tonglo-Sandakphu-Return:
This is a 6/7 days moderate trekking from Maneshanjang, which is 26-km by road from Darjeeling and ideal for views along a standard trail. A popular trekking route from Darjeeling, this trek takes one to Sandakphu and Phalut from where one can have breakthtaking views of Kanchenjunga and Mt. Everest.

Singalila Treks:
Treks in the eastern Himalayan region are organized through both high and low altitude areas. The most popular of treks is the one through high altitude areas across the Singalila range in Darjeeling, which starts from Maneybhanjang, goes to Meghma, Toughu, Gairibas, Sandakphu, and Phalut.The fourth and last day is the return trek to Darjeeling, which may be taken along the same route or via Ramman, Rimbick and Bijanbari.

Kalimpong Treks:
Another adventurous high altitude trek done in Darjeeling is in the Kalimpong region from Relli, Pankhasari, and Neora to the highest point in the areas, Rochella at 3,400m. From here it is a steady descent to Tangta, Jhalang along the foothills to Samsing.
