Sandakphu Phalut Trek
It is said that the Sandakphu Phalut trek is one of the most picturesque treks anywhere in the world. The mountain range, situated within the Singalila National Park, offers breathtaking Himalayan views. Pine forests and a narrow river surround small clearings through dense bamboo groves. The reward is fantastic views of the region, including the world's most awe-inspiring mountain, Mt. Everest.
The main trail leading to Phalut begins at Manebhanjan and then crosses the frontier to Nepal and West Bengal, where you'll find a restaurant and lodge. It's a comfortable, easy hike that offers impressive views of the valleys and mountains between Nepal and West Bengal. There are many species of flowers and birds along the way. If you're lucky enough, you could even be able to spot the critically endangered RED PANDA.
The view is spectacular from the top of the peak. You'll also take in the stunning views from the top of Singalila Ridge.
A Sandakphu Phalut trek is one of the most sought-after treks on the planet because it's located along the River Teesta. It's a paradise for adventure sports and a perfect spot to unwind after a tiring day of walking. The area's landscape is packed with fauna and flora. It's well worth the trip to experience this unique landscape. It is distinct nature. It has stunning views of the peaks within the Himalayan range and covers the entire 8000ers. The most prominent peak for the hike is Sandakphu, with 3636 meters/11926 feet, and Phalut is the second-highest peak of the Singalila range. Three peaks can be seen from this spot.
Sandakphu Phalut Trek is one of the very few treks in the world from which you can see 8,000-meter summits. At an altitude of 11,950 feet, you can spot the Everest cluster on Sandakphu and to your left.
There's Lhotse and Makalu, the fourth and fifth most awe-inspiring peaks on earth striving to surpass the world's highest peak. Then there's Everest that towers over everything. On your left is the third-highest summit, Kanchenjunga, standing with its family of mountains. Thanks to its shape, the family of peaks is popularly referred to as The Sleeping Buddha.
Although the Everest cluster can only be visible through Sandakphu and beyond, the views from the Sleeping Buddha begin on the very first day and continues for the entire duration of four days during the trek.
There are very few places around the globe that can give views of eight-thousander mountains such as this. And even fewer would be accessible through an easy hike.
Simply for these views, Sandakphu is a must-do.
Spring is in these mountains in a multitude of hues. White cottony Magnolias and rhododendrons in pink-red sweep the hills with the enthusiasm of summer fun. There's a celebratory feel to the Singalila forest walks along this hike in the northeast during the spring peak you should be looking for. The mysterious Red Panda.
It is believed that the Singalila National Park is the natural habitat of red pandas. They are adorable but mysterious creatures, and they are found in the forest, running through the trees, and you may be lucky enough to capture one in your photograph.
Kalipokhri - The Black Lake
The Kalipokhri settlement was built around the lake that is Kalipokhri. It means black water. This small waterhole provides an idyllic, tranquil, and beautiful place tucked in the stunning mountainous terrain, with Kanchenjunga waiting from a distant distance. This is a region within the Nepal boundary and bears indications of the religious and ethnic Buddhist group of Nepal who reside within Kalipokhri. Kalipokhri settlement. Prayer flags draped around the lake dance in the breeze as the sun begins to sink behind ice shortly after arriving at the spot.
India and Nepal Boder
The Sandakphu trek provides an unforgettable experience of trekking through India and eating an evening meal in Nepal. You can also have meals in Nepal and set up your toilet tents in India. Chitty at the beginning of the trek day is the first point where you'll find pillars that mark the border between India and Nepal. The constant movement in and out of the Indo-Nepal border gives this trek an experience of a lifetime.
Kanchenjunga Group Of Peaks
Kanchenjunga Cluster Kanchenjunga group is something that you will see as you enter the middle of Darjeeling town. It is a source of the excitement of seeing this mountain in the distance along the trail. It is possible to see some glimpses of it starting from the first day. For three hours during the trek day, The Sleeping Buddha plays the game of hiding and seek.
When you reach Tumling, the first uninterrupted view of Sleeping Buddha, the Sleeping Buddha is your guide throughout your journey. It gets more and more expensive every day. From Phalut, the group is so close that you can feel as if the mountains are only a stone's throw away.
It is believed that the Kanchenjunga range of mountain peaks needed to be a new pointer. The light streaming through the ice-encased conglomerate is a fantastic sight from the beginning of this journey. From the window of your Tumling teahouse in the early morning, you can see the "Sleeping Buddha" structure of the Kanchenjunga in all its dazzling glory as it gets more prominent and sharper as we get closer to its summit.
Amber and gold are abounding through the crystal-clear view of Kanchenjunga close-up during sunset and sunrise during this coveted trekking trip within West Bengal, making moments that you must save for the most sought-after photographs.

Day 2: Trekking From Kopidana to Tumling
We begin our trek from Kopidana. This beautiful but less-used basecamp village is ideal for trekking in West Bengal. After breakfast, we start our 5-6 hour trek that covers mixed ascents. On the way, hot lunch will be served. Tumling is where the line between trekking in Nepal or India blurs. We are suddenly taken into another country after passing a check-post. You must have your ID and visa handy. No restrictions apply to Indians or foreigners with Indian visas. It is also easy to access from other points of entry to Tumling. The tiny hamlet Tumling can be found at 9,600 feet above sea level. It is accessible via motorway from Manebhanjam or Jaubhari, which are the other ascent points along the Sandakphu–Phalut trail.
This mountain parish is home to about 10-12 Nepali families that run teahouses for trekkers throughout the year. You will also find several private lodges, huts, and other services in the area that are available to tourists and trekkers.
We will reach Tumling's warm hospitality by the end of the afternoon, around 5 p.m., since we started very early in the morning. You can later go to the viewpoint in the middle of Tumling, where you will see the magnificent view of the Kanchenjunga family snow peaks.

You will love Himalayan trekking in winter, and you will find well-marked trails after the snowmelt season to trek to Sandakphu–Phalut.
Day 3: Hiking From Tumling to Kalapokhri
There is another beautiful sunrise on the morning of the third day of the Sanndakphu Phalut Trek. We will be waking up in Tumling. The stunning Sleeping Buddha, washed by the first rays of the sun, rises magnificently across the sky. If the sky is clear, the entire Kanchenjunga range will be visible. This vision can set the mood for your day. The prominent three figures in the background are the Kanchenjunga main, flanked on two sides, and Shimbho and Kumbhakarna peaks. You can see the Goecha peaks. The Kabru set mountains, Rathong and Koktang in the fore. The hollow of Goecha La can be traced along the frontline peaks. This is another popular trek, which is located in Sikkim.
Today we begin our journey towards Kalipokhri through the beautiful forests of Singalila National Park. We often see a motorway running through interior Nepal near our hiking trail. When the magnolias and rhododendrons are in full bloom, the forests are known for their spectacular summer colors. We continue through the thickets until we reach Gairibasa, a small settlement with a few rest homes and hotels. It is located on the Nepali side of the border. We will again need to go through an Entry check post. You can stop at the Gairibasa check-post settlement to break and rest your legs before you begin the 2km trek to Kaiyakatta. You will be climbing steeper.
A little further than Gairibasa on the Kaiyakatta road, you will find steps cut into the elevation. This makes it easier for trekkers to climb. On one side, we will also see the motor road that winds its way closer to the Nepali side. After an hour of climbing from Gairibasa, we'll reach Kaiyakatta. In time to enjoy a hot meal at the settlement's Nepali enclaves, Kalipokhri - the day's final stop is 4 km further from Kaiyakatta.
The trail becomes more scenic and greener. This stretch is home to many bird species and attracts migratory fledglings. This route is a two-hour trek. It leads to a blackwater lake nestled near a settlement. There are also prayer flags that flutter in the wind. Your teahouse can be found just a short distance away.
Day 4: Trek From Kalipokhri to Sandakphu
For those who are sufficiently fit, the trail from Kalipokhri towards Sandakphu is an easy one. After a gradual climb of 30 minutes, the trail turns steeper for approximately an hour before reaching a motorway. The trip will cover about 6 km and take 3 hours.
You will see the colossal panorama of Sandakphu's summit as you reach the flats at Bikheybhanjang. It's a further 4 km climb up a zigzagging path from here.
After about an hour of climbing, you will be able to see teahouses and huts that mark the horizons at Sandakphu. Soon we will reach the summit point, from which a 360-degree view of the highest Himalayan peaks opens up in front. The glitterati of ice-peaks can be seen on clear days, including Makalu and Everest, Nuptse and Baruntse, and Chamling, Chomolonzo and Machapucchare. This view extends to the Annapurna family peaks, which stretch out to the west. You can see the Three Sisters peaks and the vision of Sleeping Buddha that accompanied you throughout the trek.
Day 5: Trek From Sandakphu to Sepi
After a breathtaking sunrise, one of the most beautiful trekking in India's peak panoramas, we prepare for our descent to Sepi in West Bengal. Although this trek will be the longest, it will also be the most exhausting.
Today's trail will take us through bamboos, the natural habitat for Red Pandas and Bears. We will be served hot lunch at Gurdum by following a forest trail. You can order a drink made from the exotic Rhododendron blossoms, and its full medicinal benefits make a great dessert.
Timburay, a small settlement with a few homes and tea shops, is the next village we'll cross. We will then come across the stunning Sri River, also known locally as Sri Khola (Khola means river).
We will arrive at Sepi late afternoon after crossing the stream via a wooden bridge.
Day 6: Drive Back From Sepi to NJP or Bagdogra
After a night in Sepi's tranquil idyll, we board the train and drive towards NJP. The time to arrive at NJP station will be approximately 2 p.m, and this allows you to book a night train/flight home for the 6th day.

Things To Carry for the Sandakphu Phalut Trek?
Sandakphu Phalut Trek is an high altitude trek. The trekking gear you have to have for this particular trek differs from normal treks. Thus read this whole segment.
Trek Essentials: You can’t do the trek without these.
1. Trekking Shoes

Layering is the best way to protect yourself in the mountains. Layers provide maximum protection against all the elements. Layers are also great for protecting against the elements, especially when it changes rapidly in the mountains.
Base Layer: 3 - T-shirts
Carry 2 T-shirt, and wear 1. Wear full-sleeve, dry-fit T-shirts, preferably with collars. These will protect your neck and arms from sunburn. UV radiations can quickly burn you, especially in the high altitudes of the trek.
Dry-fit T-shirts dry quickly, dry quickly, and are quick drying in the event of rain. Collared T-shirts work better than those with rounded necks.Cotton or Synthetic?We Indians love cotton. It makes sense to wear cotton down in the plains, where the heat can reach 40 degrees Celsius. It takes a while to dry once it is wet. Synthetic is the best choice for mountains where temperatures are cooler. They are quick to wick sweat and dry quickly. They can smell fast so make sure to have a roll-on deodorant. Expert Tip: If you're more prone to colds, you can carry a pair of thermal inners. From the past experiences of ours, using 2 T shirts over other helps to prevent from cold.
From Where To Buy:Buy from Decathlon.
5. Insulation Layers in Winter.
The Sandakphu Phalut trek can be done in winter. You will need at minimum 5 layers of warm clothing if you are going between December and March.
You will require1 - inner thermals, 2 - light fleece, 1 - light sweater, and 1 padded jacket. Don't buy your grandma's sweaters. They can be very heavy. You want fleece jackets and sweaters that fold easily.
A padded jacket is the best choice for your outer layer. Water resistant materials are not necessary. You do need an outer jacket with a padded lining that keeps out the cold and wind. Make sure your padded jacket includes a hood.

6. Two - Trek Pants
This trek requires at least one pair of trekking pants and a maximum of two. One pair of pants should be worn and one additional for when it rains/snows. Trek pants with zip-off thighs at the thighs make them ideal for trekking. You should also choose quick-drying pants over cotton. Even in colder climates, they dry quickly.
TRack pants or trekking pants?Track pants can be used as a backup or double as thermal bottoms. Track pants aren't trek pants so they shouldn't be your main outerwear. They should be used as an emergency backup.
Compalsoury Accessories, without these you will not be equipped to perform the trek or not able to do Trek
These accessories are necessary to carry. These accessories are mandatory for anyone who travels to Sandakphu Phalut. Trekkers tend to delay borrowing or purchasing accessories. We recommend the opposite. These accessories should be gathered first.
Sunglasses are required to prevent snowblindness. Expect to be walking on snowy stretches during a winter trek such as Sandakphu Phalut. Snow blindness can be caused by a small amount of direct sunlight (around a half-hour's exposure). Because fallen snow acts like thousands upon thousands of mirrors, reflecting direct UV rays. You will need sunglasses that provide UV protection.
If the trekking day is sunny and bright (on meadows, open sections), you should wear sunglasses. You must not remove your sunglasses from a snowy section until it is fully crossed.
In case you use spectacles: You can buy oversized sunglasses for your glasses, which you can wear over your regular glasses (buy at Decathlon). Photochromic lenses are also available if you find this cumbersome.
Contact lens users: Contact lenses can be worn on the trek if you have them. The lens solution won't freeze. It will not be a problem to change your lens inside your tent. You will only need enough cleaning solution to clean your fingers. Your contact lenses can be covered with sunglasses.
Suncaps are mandatory. A sun cap is mandatory for trekking. It can cause headaches, sunstrokes, rapid dehydration, and a drop in performance.
Important Information: The Golden rule of the mountains is to always cover your head. A sun cap is a protective layer that protects you from the sun's harsh rays during the day. It also works well with naked UV rays. Sun caps keep your body's temperature in check. The reverse is true in the morning/evening. Your head quickly loses body heat. The woolen cap stops heat from escaping your head.
You will be handling snow quite a lot on a trek like Sandakphu Phalut. To grip things or hold onto snow, gloves are essential. The gloves should also keep you warm. You should get synthetic gloves with waterproofing on the exterior and a padded interior. Wear a tight-fitting fleece glove in your synthetic hand glove if you have difficulty obtaining the combination (not likely). This trek requires hand gloves.Rent Hand Gloves right here....
4. Woollen Cap or Balaclava.
These should cover your head. You lose the most heat in the cold mountains from your head and not your hands, feet, or other parts of your body. Protecting your head is important, especially in the evenings when the sun sets. Your woollen cap should be worn at all times, including early mornings and late evenings.
A woollen cap that covers your ears can protect your sensitive ears. Balaclavas are a modernized version of the woolen cap. The balaclava covers your ears, neck, and other parts of your face. A woolen cap that covers only your head will not be sufficient, such as a woolen cap, will require a neck warmer or scarf.Buy Wollen Cap right here....
5. Socks (3 sets).
You should also have three to four pairs each of socks for sports. You get warmth and cushioning from sports socks. The mantra here is to wear synthetic socks, or at the very least a synthetic blend. Cotton socks absorb sweat and water. These socks are difficult to dry.
Woollen socks are warm and cozy in the winter. Two sports socks are sufficient if you can't get woolen socks.
Buy Wollen Socks here
6. Head Torch / Head Lamp
Many trekkers don't know if they should get a torch or a headlamp. A headlamp is essential because it allows you to use your hands for other activities. You'll need to use your hands for the Sandakphu Phalut trek, including washing dishes, setting up tents, and holding your trekking poles.

A pair of trekking sticks can make the difference between a pleasant and strenuous trek. India uses a single trekking stick. Two trekking poles will give you more stability and balance. You can also walk faster with them.

Weather can quickly change on a trek. In a matter of seconds, a bright sunny day can quickly turn into a torrential downpour. To combat this, you will need a poncho and a rain jacket. A poncho, a large rain cover that covers your arms and heads, is what you need. Because it covers you and part of your backpack, it is very effective. It is very light and weighs almost nothing.

9. Rain cover for your Backpack .
Backpacks can save your life. Your backpack will hold all of your dry clothes and warm gear. Your backpack should be kept dry at all times. Most backpacks have rain-covers built in.

The plastic sheet can be wrapped around the backpack and held in place by a string or elastic.
10. Daypack (20-30 ltrs, optional).
