Goecha-la Trekking

Goecha-la (16,800 ft) is a popular trek for Kanchenjunga Base Camp in Sikkim. We did it through the unconventional trail, Singalila Ridge in the last week of May, 2012. The trek starts from Nambu and through Dhaphevir pass, Gomathang, Panding it joins the conventional Dzongri-Goechala trail. The Singalila Ridge is truly beautiful and full of adventure whereas the Goecha-la pass is the ultimate destination for the majestic view of Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Pandim and Mt, kabru group.
