Dzongri – Goche La Trek in Sikkim

Back

 

“The mystic element of Mt.Khangchendzonga, the guardian deity  of Sikkim, has been always an irresistible lure for the trekkers. A trip to North West Sikkim including a trek from Dzongri to Go-che-la, the base of Mt.Khangchendzonga, is a must for those who love an adventure in the Himalayas. In 1890, Claude White became the first European to cross Go-che-la (pass). He trekked from Dzongri over to Talung glacier, southeast of the Mt.Khangchendzonga. He spent years exploring the high altitude regions around the glaciers of  Zemu and Lhonak as a part of Sikkim Tibet boundary commission in 1902.

 

Dzongri is situated at an altitude of about 13,000-ft., in west Sikkim. This trek offers a fascinating close-up view of Kanchanganga and Mt. Pandim. To the west rises the long outline of the Kyangla ridge. Dzongri is a trekker’s paradise. Goecha La is situated at an altitude of about 16,000ft. Geocha La offers an enchanting sight of Mt.Pandim, Kanchanganga and others.
