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.

Mt. Deo Tibba is a beautiful 6001 Meter (19,687 Ft.) high peak, located in the Pir Panjal range of the Himalaya and situated quite close to the resort town of Manali, in Himachal Pradesh. The mountain itself consists of an extensive ice cap, with the actual climb to the summit being up an inclined hump of a ‘windslab’ snow. This magnificent peak is accessible, once the edge of the great snow & ice plateau extending right up to the periphery of the Malana Glacier, (which abuts the upper Kullu and Malana valleys), is reached. On reaching the summit, one is rewarded with an exhilarating view of vast eternal snowfields, hanging glaciers and many peaks of the surrounding areas; including the great peaks of the Malana & Tosh glacier catchments.

The state of Nagaland in the North East of India is home to several tribes each of which are distinct in their language, culture and customs. The festivals are important to the tribes as these revolve around agriculture, which is a major profession in the state. The Nagas consider their festivals sacred and so participation in these festivals is essential. To encourage inter-tribal interaction and to promote cultural heritage of Nagaland, the Government of Nagaland organizes the Hornbill Festival every year in the first week of December. The festival is named after the Indian hornbill, the large and colourful forest bird, which is displayed in folklore in most of the state’s tribes. If you are headed to the Hornbill festivel, it’s a great opportunity to combine this trip with a stay and safari at the popular Rhino destination – Kaziranga National Park. And then further explore the North-East and get mesmerised by Meghalaya.
This experience will allow you to do just that.
