Singalila ridge trek is one of the oldest treks in the world to view the amazing Eastern Himalayan range. This particular ridge trek will not only allow you to see remote Indian Himalayas but also parts of Nepal. It is considered to be one of the most scenic trekking routes of the Eastern Himalayas offering panoramic views of the world’s highest mountains –i.e. Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga right till the peaks of Bhutan. The trek starts in the Sherpa village of Manebhanjang and from throughout the trek you weave in and out of Nepal, through the Singalila National Park, across mountain ridges and picturesque villages. If you are a flora and fauna enthusiast then March/April are a great time to go to see the rich varieties of rhododendron and orchids.
