Overview Overview

Sandakphu trek is the one for you if you want to swing between the India-Nepal border casually, experience sighting four of the highest peaks in the world all at once and well, experience drinking your coffee at the highest point of the Singalila mountain range.
The name Sandakphu meaning is ‘Height of Poison Plant, which is quite a strange name for a mountain peak. But the name has reasons for its being and one of the reasons is that it is surrounded by poisonous aconite growing all over the place and the second is the fact that it is the highest peak here in the Singalila mountain range.  

Sandakphu trek experience is one of a kind and the major attraction is the view you get from Sandakphu valley where you can see four of the world’s highest peaks namely Mt. Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, and Makalu all at once. There are several spots near Sandakphu that you should definitely add to your Itineraries such as Manebhanjan, Chitrey, Tonglu, Tumling, and Bikeybhanjan.
