India: 14d Tholung Valley Nature Trek

  • Moderate
  • 5 Days Tent
  • 8 Days Hotel Days

Firstly, the Tholung valley in North Sikkim is considered to be the spiritual and cultural center of the Lepcha people. They are indigenous to the state of Sikkim. In addition to that, from this point forward, it is a no-go area. Small communities of Lepcha people can be found scattered across the steep. Therefore, the place is heavily wooded slopes that tower over the Tholung valley.  These communities are dispersed across the slopes.

Similarly, there are a significant number of relics and antiques brought from other Monasteries to the Tholung monastery. Thus, the Tholung monastery is responsible for the preservation of these items. On this particular day, once every three years, the public can see a significant number of these artifacts for the very first time. At the end of the hike up this gorgeously wooded valley, you will arrive at the point where you can access the more remote alpine valleys. simultaneously, you will have the opportunity to see yaks grazing in this area, which is located below the snow-covered peaks of the Kanchenjunga range.
