Sikkim Green Lake Trek 15 Days

The Green Lake trek in Sikkim is one of the many complex and unexplored treks in the Sikkim Himalayan region, passing through several secluded tribal villages nestled high in the mountains.

Green Lake Trek to Sikkim is a very picturesque trail that combines natural beauty with spectacular views of high Himalayan peaks. The Sikkim Green Lake Treks lead a vast tract of thick forest, with several varieties of rhododendrons, other colorful flowers, birds, and many waterfalls along the Green Lake trekking route.

The area offers a stunning view of the majestic Kanchenjunga Mountain range, including Kanchenjunga at 8,586 meters, Kanchenjunga West (Yalung Kang) at 8,505 meters, Kanchenjunga Central at 8,482 meters, Kanchenjunga South at 8,494 meters, and Kangbachen at 7,903 meters.

The Sikkim Green Lake trek begins from Lachen, which is located at an altitude of 2,730 meters and about 135 kilometers from Gangtok. The path leads to Tallem at 3,240 meters via Zema. From Tallem, the route winds and gently climbs to Jakthang at 3,430 meters. A day of acclimatization is scheduled at Yabuk before continuing further on the Sikkim Green Lake trek.

After reaching Green Lake in Sikkim, we will retrace our journey along the same track to Lachen and then drive back to Gangtok, concluding our wonderful Green Lake trekking holiday in Sikkim.

The Best time to trek Green Lake in Sikkim is the month of October and November in the autumn season and April and May in the Spring season. 

Trekking In the Himalayas is always a big dream being closer to beautiful snowcapped peaks.
