Singalila Pass Phoktey Dara Trek through  the Varsey Rhododendron Sanctuary

With a total trekking distance of around 50Km the Hilley Varsey Trek is one of a kind trek that is isolated but adorned with great mountain views. During spring you will find the Varsey Rhododendron Sanctuary decorated with multi colored rhododendron flowers, and every spring the Rhododendron festival is organized here.

Highlights of the Singalila Phoktey Dara Trek

The highlight of the Singalila Pass Trek is the magnificent view of Everest and Kanchenjunga Range from Phoktey Dara and Singalila Pass. Not many trekkers have trekked on this route as the more famous Goechala Pass Trek or the Sandakphu Phalut Trek in the neighbouring Darjeeling Hills.

Singalila Pass to Phalut Sandakphu Trek

An added attraction of the Singalila Pass trek for an enthusiastic Indian hiker is the trek from Hilley to Singalila Pass, and then cross over to Phalut and trek to Sandakphu on the Darjeeling side of the Singalila Ridge. By adding a few more days you will get to do the complete Singalila Trek. Foreign Hikers cannot do this as there are no immigration posts on the Singalila Ridge between Sikkim and Darjeeling.
