Sikkim Green Lake Trek





This is a very picturesque trail which combines natural beauty with spectacular views of high peaks.There are vast tracts of thick forest, with several varieties of rhododendrons, other colorful flowers,birds and many waterfalls on both sides of the trail. Kanchendzonga was one of the first peaks to be attempted by expeditions before world war II. As Nepal was closed, the approach from Sikkim,via the Zemu Glacier,was followed instead. Pre war Everest expeditions also passed through North Sikkim and this trail was part of their route. Today,it is still largely unexplored region as not many parties have been allowed across to Green Lake.

The trek to Green Lake, the base camp of mount Kanchendzonga on the Zemu glacier in north Sikkim is a splendid walk with the variety of flowers like rhododendron, blue poppies and primulas all in bloom. The mountain views are fantastic with amphitheater of peaks with mount Kanchendzonga at the head of the valley. However, the green lakes base camp is more than 5000m and so proper acclimatization is essential to avoid altitude sickness.
