A Place In India You must take a visit...!!!!

India is the land of myriad tourism potential, with dazzling beaches, dramatic temples, exotic rain forests, colossal mountains, eternal deserts, lively cities, and the Indian peninsula creates an ultimate allure for the travelers across the globe. So vivid and diverse in culture, heritage and language, India is bestowed with an equally rich natural beauty that adds to its tranquility. The picturesque hill stations, the pristine beaches, the unique and halcyon pilgrim destinations and the vast deserts, historical buildings to gen-next dwelling structures and from snow capped mountains to the boat ride on the serene backwater yards and breathtaking hill stations, India is a land of endless opportunities for the explorers of peace and poise. If traditional destinations are less for you, we have compiled a list of best of India travel offbeat destinations for you.

Today's Place is non other then - Sandakpfu

Sandakfu is the highest peak located in Darjeeling district in the eastern part of India at an altitude of 3,636 m .The name Sandakfu means ‘Height of the Poison Plant’ because of the poisonous aconite plants that grow near the peak in abundance. The patronizing peak of the Singalila Range, Sandakphu is the most audacious point of many trekking routes in the Darjeeling-Sikkim region. Sandakfu exemplifies the wild elemental splendor of the snows and the vista from the mountain peak is worth all the adversity endured on the way. It can be rightly called the “Paradise of Trekkers” as one can see four of world’s five highest peaks Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu and Lhotse from this place. 

How to reach

Sandakphu can be reached by trekking. The trekking starts from Manebhanjan via Chitrey, Meghma, Tonglu, Tumling, Gairibas, Kala Pokhri, Bekhey Bhanjan to Sandakphu.


The trek along the Singalila Ridge to Sandakphu and Phalut is one of the most popular ones in the Eastern Himalayas due to the grand vistas of the Kanchenjunga range and the Everest range which can be seen from the ridge, and also for the seasonal wildflower blooms and birding. Treks begin at Manebhanjan which is 51 km (1.5 hours by road) from Darjeeling.
The trekking routes inside the Singalila National Park have four legs or stages.
Manebhanjan to Meghma (2600 m): This is a 4 hour trek through the lower forest.
Meghma to Gairibans (2621 m): There are two alternative trekking routes. Both go via Tonglu (3070 m) and Tumling (2900 m). The boundary of the national park passes though Tumling where a checkpost is located. From Tumling, a shorter trail cuts through Nepal and Jaubari (2750 m).

Gairibans to Sandakphu (3636 m): This is a steep 4 hour climb. Roughly half-way up the climb is the village of Kala Pokhri (3186 m).
Sandakphu to Phalut (3600 m): This is the most pristine stretch of the trek, offering great views of Kanchenjunga and Mt. Everest. It is a one-day trek via Sabarkum (3536 m) covering 21 km. But the main problem of this Sandakphu-Phalut route is that there is no water source in between, so the trekkers have to carry enough water to reach Phalut.
The descent from Sandakphu can be accomplished in several ways:
Retracing the way back to Manebhanjan.
A steep descent to the village of Sirikhola on the banks of the River Sirikhola, via Gurdum (2300 m), and from there to Rimbick.
There is now a 4WD motorable road to Sandakphu, so one can hire a cab down to Manebhanjan and Darjeeling via Tumling and Tonglu if needed. The drive on the gravel road, however, is very arduous.


The temperature swings from -20°C (including wind chill factor) in winter to +15°C in summer. Sandakphu gets snowfall in late December to early February.
