Mechuka La Trek; Trekking to Dorjeeling Mountain:With boosting our body with good food and sleep, it was time to put on our adventure spirits. There are so many fine trekking options in Mechuka. It’s a hub for adventure junkies.This trek is famous for the huge MENCHUKA Sign that is inscribed at the top of the mountain as the Los Angeles HOLLYWOOD Sign. It intrigued us and we decided to trek towards the sign.The trek starts from the Bumjipanga bridge, outside the main town. It took us 3 1/2 hours to reach there. What an exhilarating experience. It was all worth it. Halfway through the trek the town of Mechuka can be seen without any hindrance. We reached the last letter of the huge sign ‘A’, concrete laid down on the mountain and painted in white. After enjoying the mist, rain and the mesmerizing view we headed back.P.S  During summer, not only rain will be an obstacle on your trek, leech is found in abundance, so be ready to get sucked by leeches.
