Utteray Trek

The Utteray trek takes you along the border of Nepal and Sikkim. It is a 12 day trek which starts in Utteray and ends in Yuksom bringing you on a journey through green valleys, fast flowing rivers, rocky hills and beautiful monasteries where the only source of contact you might have for days will be with the herder and his herd of yaks! This Trek takes you right to the heart of the Himalayan National Park where you will see a wide variety of flora and fauna (depending on the time of year) and, if you’re lucky, some wildlife. The majestic views of the Himalayas and the mighty Kanchenjunga on this route are not to be missed.
