Sandakphu Holiday Packages

Nestled in the Singalila Ridge of the Indian part of the Himalayas, Sandakpu is known as the highest point of West Bengal with a height of 11,929 ft. above sea level.
Tourists flock to this beautiful destination to enjoy the snow-clad vistas dominated by some of the highest ranges of the world. Visitors find themselves overwhelmed with a striking view of the Himalayas including the Kanchenjunga ranges and the Mount Everest. The most brilliant aspect of this sight is its appearance like that of a sleeping human body which gives it the name of ‘The Sleeping Buddha’.

Places To Visit

The people settled in and around Sandakphu mainly follow Buddhism. On the way to Sandakphu, you can find old monasteries at the Buddhist settlements of Chitre and Meghma. Both are beautifully constructed amidst the serene surroundings and scenic views.

2. Kalipokhri Lake

A small Buddhist hamlet within the Singalila National Park, Kalipokhri is a misty land of black waters. It is known for the Kalipokhri lake which has a natural dark grey or black hue. The muddy water never freezes and holds a sacred place among the locals of the village.

3. Tonglu Lake

Part of the Singalila Ridge, Tonglu offers a breathtaking atmosphere with fantastic viewpoints and the Tonglu Lake. The clean water of the lake acts like a mirror that reflects the cloudy sky, green trees and the icy peaks. The GTA Lodge right beside the lake is a perfect spot for waking up to eye-pleasing scenery.

4. Sandakphu Viewpoints

Being the highest point of West Bengal, Sandakphu has numerous viewpoints with a 180° view of the mighty Himalayas. These are the perfect spots for witnessing the changing colours of the high peaks during sunrise and sunset.

5. Singalila National Park

It is a popular attraction and has to be crossed to reach Sandakphu. The region is covered with flowers during springtime and it is known to have the largest variety of orchids in the world.

Why this destination?

Apart from the destination’s charm, the journey to Sandhakpu is a delight in itself. The sharp turns, cosy huts, patches of snow and an uninterrupted view of snowy peaks, makes the journey an engaging experience. You could opt for a jeep to reach the top or embark on an arduous trek of 2-3 days starting from Manebhanjan. Since the journey to Sandhakpu is through the Singalila National Park, the springtimes hold a colourful display of various flowers like Rhododendrons, Orchids and Magnolias.

Best Time To Visit

Winters

4 years ago
Very beautifully planned and our trip was successful by completing all the itinerary. Riya and Abhishek from Raisoone Travels (Our Travel Agent) was very knowledgeable and made efforts to make our trip successful. Tsaungu lake was the best. We experienced a snow fall and driver was very opt of the trip having knowledge of each and very small things. Hotel at Gangtok (Powring Guest House) was the best. Overall superb experience. Not able to visit Lachen due to road closure but our days was fully utilized in visiting best places in Gangtok.... Highly recommending Raisoone Travels for planning Sikkim - Darjeeling Tour.

Dear Neha, As I spoke to you, I want to give my sincere feedback on my recent visit to Sikkim. Positives: 1. I really admire and appreciate your personal attention during the entire trip. You kept in touch with us on a daily basis to ensure that all the arrangements were upto the mark and we face no troubles. 2. We had a bit of heart burn in a couple of instances but you handled them with utmost maturity to keep us at peace. 3. At no point of time, we felt as if we did a mistake by booking it with Himalayan Travels. You delivered whatever you promised. Some Scope of further Improvements: 1. In MAP deals where BF and Dinner is a part of the package, you must specify the meal content. Ex: A lunch must have a Soup+Dal+2 veg+Bread+Rice+1Desert ... Since its not specified, there is a big difference in the content of food from 1 hotel to another. 2. The taxi drivers would sometimes mislead the customers and would influence them not to visit a certain places. They should be given clear instructions of not to mislead the customers at any point of time Overall, I want to thank you for being a wonderful organizer. My best wishes for you and Himalayan Travels for future. Warm Regards
SB
