About The Tour

You can travel with us for a majestic journey to Sandakphu, West Bengal's highest mountain, in a 1960's Land Rover, that will be both a unique and stunning experience. Mount Everest, Kangchenjunga, Lhotse, and Makalu, four of the largest global highest peaks, can all be viewed from the top. You'll also travel to Phalut from Sandakphu, from which you'll have the best mountain views Mt. Kangchenjunga. The grandeur and power of the rocky mountains will enchant and awe you. It appears as though you can reach out and touch the summit since it is so near. It is more comfortable yet exciting to travel from Maney-banjang (near Darjeeling) to Sandakphu in the Land Rover. Next day, you will be travelling from Sandakphu to Phalut. You will get some stunning views of the mountains there. Your trekking begins on the third when you descend from Phalut to Gorkhey. And then on the fourth and final day, you descend to Srikhola and drive to Darjeeling from there.

The drive is off road and one will notice very few other vehicles except the local Land Rovers make this journey – The drive is definitely an adventure in itself and the views are stunning to say the least!

There are very few places where one can witness the Khanchendzonga and its family of ranges on one side and the Everest Family on the other side!
