Description

Hello Friends, We Aberrant Wanderers are glad to invite you for Sandakphu & Phalut  Peak on 26th Nov, 2016 to 03rd Dec, 2016 

About Sandakphu & Phalut Trek:

 Sandakphu is the highest point of West Bengal at 3636m in the district of Darjeeling. This trek follows the famous Singalila Ridge, a prominent spur of high ground that lies at the southern end of a long crest, which runs down from the Kanchendzongha massif and forms the border between Sikkim & Nepal. One of the unavoidable necessities of trekking in Himalaya is that the best views are had from high up but the trek along this ridge, passing through small settlements, is perhaps the one of the most scenically rewarding in the Himalaya. There are spectacular panoramic views
of Kanchendzongha, Makalu, Everest, Lhotse, Janu (Kumbhakarna), Chamlang, Baruntse, Kabru, Pandim and a host of other peaks all seen in one stretch. In spring the slopes are carpeted with red and pink Rhododendrons. The Singalila National park area has rare species like Red Panda and is a birder’s paradise.
