This trek route falls entirely within Sikkim. We begin in the small village of Uttarey and trek up to the Singalila ridge to continue on to Goechala. A remote route, this trail is not much frequented by backpack trekkers. There are sections of narrow paths, ups and downs and some scree walking but for the most part, the trek follows a good path used mainly by yak herders in Sikkim.

On this wilderness trail, we walk up towards what is actually the border between Nepal, Sikkim and West Bengal. Dotted with beautiful high altitude lakes and passing several passes, this trek gives the opportunity of viewing Kanchenjunga not only once at a specific high point but several times over the days as you cross the passes. This trail finally joins with the main west Sikkim trekking trail at Dzongri where the option is to continue to Goechala - the final view point where the left shoulder of Kanchenjunga stands just 9km away as the crow flies OR descend to Yuksom for those with time limitations. The advantage of this trek is that it is a round trip. Still a relatively new trek, the Sikkim Ridge trek promises to be among the best with its crowning glory of Kanchenjunga seen from several vantage points along this trek.
