A major part of the North Sikkim landscape falls under the Kanchenjunga Biosphere Reserve. This is the region where the Himalayas give way to the Tibetan Plateau making a diverse landscape within a small area. The Lachung area is characterised by wide valleys, the most prominent being the Yumthang valley which is reached by passing through the Singba Rhododendron Sanctuary. The Sanctuary boasts of at least 30 species of Rhododendrons and is also home to a variety of birds like Tits, Warblers, Sunbirds & Pheasants.

Another road diverges from Chungthang towards the village of Lachen and proceeds further to the Gurudrongmar Lake in the Tibetan Plateau. The landscape dramatically changes beyond Thangu. From here begins the trans-Himalayan Zone. The region is home to a variety of Birds & Mammals typical of the Cold Desert.

Inclusion: Accommodation with share basis, Meals, guide and all transportation.

I have never experienced nature from close but when I came across myjungletrip, I thought of giving it a try. And boy, it was worth every penny. Everything from flight tickets to resort booking to the tours was streamlined to perfection.

Who would have thought that even a normal holiday can turn out to be a roller-coaster ride? It was and all the credit goes to myjungletrip. We have decided to come back again in the near future.

Dukpas Hut is a small hut in the height of 2600 feet with a view of Historical Buxa fort made our Trekking programme a grand. Throughout our Trekking days (Seven days) the service of Dukpas hut was great, though the hut is located on such a remote place where electricity and motorable road connectivity is nil. They serve us good & tasty meals even while we were on trek.

I am not an avid traveler but thought of giving it a shot after browsing the internet and finally zeroing on myjungletrip. What I liked about them was their style of planning the trips and giving so many convenient choices for newbies like me.
