Trek to Keushong Lake-North Sikkim

Duration :6 days, 5 nights

PRICE: INR 30500 per person on twin sharing

DAY 1:

Arrival − Passingdang, Upper Dzongu 

We will pick you up from Bagdogra airport/NJP railway station and drive you to Passingdang in Upper Dzongu. The landscape is beautiful and serene and the climate eminently salubrious.

You’ll be staying in a home stay at Passingdang, where you will experience the simplicity and the rich hospitality of your hosts and local inhabitants.

Spend the evening interacting with your host’s family and enjoy a delicious home-cooked local cuisine cooked over the traditional mud stove.

Catch a good night’s sleep as you’ll be trekking the next day.

DAY 2:

Passingdang – Lingzya − Tholung

Today’s going to be a long (20 km, approx 5 hours) trek up to Lingzya village, crossing the village of Tingvong.  The trail from Linzey to Tholung will take you through dense forests and cardamom groves. You can also spot birds and butterflies today.

Your night halt will be at a camp in Tholong.


DAY 3:

Tholung Sightseeing

Wake up to a beautiful morning at 8,000 feet above sea level. 

Today you’ll be visiting one of the oldest and most sacred monasteries in Sikkim, Tholung Monastery. This is situated near the “sacred rock.” There is also a traditional bamboo bridge nearby you can cross over.

From such a high altitude, you will get a magnificent view of the Himalayas. 

You will return to the campsite for the night.

DAY 4:

Tholong − Keushong Tso

Your strength and durance will be tested to the limits today as you start your trek from Tholung Gompa for Keushong Lake, situated at an altitude of 14,800 ft above sea level.

On the way, you will come across herds of yak (long-haired Himalayan bovine). If you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of blue sheep, which are an endangered species and native to this area. You can also see plenty of high-altitude birds on this trek. 

You will spend the night at a campsite.

DAY 5:

Keushong Tso − Tholong − Changay

After having a light-packed breakfast, you will start your way back to Changay, a 4-hour walk downhill.

You will be camping for the night. It’s also your last day camping, so if you haven’t already spent time stargazing, making cool shadow animals with your flashlight, and retelling ghost stories around the campfire, then tonight’s the night. 

DAY 6:

Departure

After breakfast, you will start for Lingzya village, reaching there by lunch time. After lunch, we’ll drive you to Bagdogra airport/N.J.P. railway station.

 We hope you take back happy memories and await your return for another exciting trip with us.
