Trekking

Unlike other treks where you see a few number of mountain peaks,the biggest reason to do the Goechala trek is you don’t just get to see one summit — the Kanchenjunga — but 14 other big summits. The majestic views of huge mountains that you see is a lot for the trek — especially as close to the eyes as on the Goechala trek. It is no wonder that Goechala is consider to be the closest to the big mountain treks of Nepal by the trekkers.
Apart from the majestic views of the great Himalayas, one of the biggest highlights of the Goechala trek is the sunrise seen on the Kanchenjunga range. Even though trekkers are not allowed all the way to the actual Goecha Pass, the view from View Point 1 and Dzongri is worth the effort.
The trail to Goechala is abundant with rhododendron forests,which during the spring-summer months of April and May, burst to life with pink and red flowers! It’s a surreal experience walking along the wooden-log trial, covered with rhododendron flowers through these jungles! The Samiti Lake is another big attraction on the Goechala trek. The still waters of the lake, and the reflection of Mt Pandim on it , especially in the early hours, is a view worth the efforts.
