For a leisure trekker looking to view the Kanchenjunga, this 6-day Trek (from Yuksom) to Dzongri top and back is a great experience. The trek starts from the quaint village of Yuksom. As you enter the Kanchenjunga National Park you hike through the lush green forest to reach Tsokha, a major stop for trekkers in midst of a beautiful village with a pond and gompa. From here its gradual uphill as you cross meadows and forests till you reach Dzongri, where you suddenly start feeling cold. Sometimes, during the season it snows and the entire place including the Dzongri top is immaculately white. And as you ascend early morning to the Dzongri top, you will find all the walking and climbing worth it as you see the majestic Kanchenjunga peak against the sunrise. A sight worth walking for.
