Reisebeschrieb

Discover the unknown eastern Himalayas between Bhutan and Nepal with us. You trek along the border between India and Nepal along the Singelela ridge, where, with a bit of luck, you will experience a magnificent panoramic view of the Nepalese Himalayas and the third highest mountain in the world, Mt Khangchendzonga. To the east, Mt. Everest can be seen on Nepalese territory, as well as the peaks of Makalu and Lhotse, while Mt. Khangchendzonga, the patron god of the Kingdom of Sikkim, is enthroned to the north. You will be impressed by the culture of the Sherpa people. The trek is suitable for participants who want to travel at a less extreme altitude for the Himalayas (between 2000 and 3600 m above sea level) and without overnight stays in tents. You will spend the night in permanent accommodation and hike for approx. 3 – 6 hours a day
