The 'Singalila Trek' as popularly known, enables one to discover the passion of the Himalayan region some of which is unmarred by humans.

This Trek takes one places from where one can feel the proximity of the stars and is still in its premival majesty. It brings one face to face with the snow-capped mountains with the sublime grandeur of the Himalayas. The region abounds in rhododendrons, magnolias, primulas, orchids and ferns of numerous varieties. About six hundred species of birds inhabit the emerald green forests on the slopes of the mountains.

The hilly destination of Darjeeling is blessed with well defined forest trails along the Nepalese border that afford views of Kanchenjungaand glimpses of Everest, Lhotse and Makalu. Just like the geographical location the climate of Darjeeling is also pretty similar to that of Nepal.

Plenty of trekking routes have been opened in the Darjeeling area to savor the breathtaking beauty of the Eastern Himalayas. In the Darjeeling area, the summit of the trekking adventure culminates at Sandakphu-a summit at an altitude of 3,658 meters (12,000 ft) on the famous Singalia ridge. It is fit to make mention of a visionary and dreamy-eyed Jesuit Rev. Fr. MacDonald, who pioneered trekking as an organized holiday and sport in the Darjeeling and Sikkim area where hundreds of trekkers now cluster for its joys. Trekkers have virtually to just take themselves upon the mountains--the equipment, food etc, is shipped upon the climb site by the porters. In Darjeeling, trekkers who are too old or don't have the time to walk seven hours a day for the allotted time of five to ten days, can always trek upon Sandakphu by jeep or Land Rover. The journey is memorable and tests both the mettle of the driver and the intensity of the vehicle. The trek into the Darjeeling area can be undertaken by any casual walker.

It is said that trekking in India originated in Darjeeling. Infact, the first organised trekking route in India was established here along the Singalila range. The Sandakphu trek beginsin Darjeeling and proceeds through Maney bhanjyang, Tonglu, Sandakphu and ends in Phalut.
