Imp Note: While doing RSVP answer all the questions and If you are not sure about attending Just watch this page don't do RSVP. EVENT NOTES : Where : Sikkim TYPE : Expedition (Himalayas) Difficulty level : Medium - Difficult Endurance level : Easy Duration : 10 Days About Place : Kangchenjunga – the third highest mountain in the world, provides an inspiring backdrop for the Goechala Trek. Until the discovery of the height of Mt Everest in the 19th century, Kangchenjunga was considered to be the highest mountain in the world. Viewing its huge flanks rising high above the foothills, it is not hard to understand why, while the many 7000m peaks complete an impressive panorama. Yet there is more than mountain views to whet the appetite of the seasoned trekker. The trails lead from steamy, subtropical forest with bamboo, luxuriant ferns and orchids to temperate forest bands with ancient oak and rhododendron trees before heading to the alpine meadows that afford uninterrupted views of the East Ridge of the mighty Kangchenjunga.
