Before we set out for the 10 days of rigorous walk, we had a chilled out evening at Yuksom, visiting the Monastery and binged on delicious momos!...
Tshoka is a little settlement in the Kanchenjunga National Park in West Sikkim. Few houses are situated on an edge with of valley dropping down from 3 sides. Basically its an overnight stop for trekkers going up to Kanchenjunga base. The mountain slants are secured with thick impervious woods and exploring off the way is of a great degree troublesome because of the thick vegetation, steep inclines and plentiful of leeches. This spot is one of the bio-diversity problem areas in the world, home to a few fascinating east-Himalayan birds. Trek from Tshoka to Dzongri is still a precarious ascension taking approx 5hrs. This leads us through thick backwoods of rhododendrons. There are more than 400 flowering species in Sikkim. A spot called Deorali Dara gives a radiant perspective of the mountains. The overnight will be either in camps of the Tshoka Village Home Stay which has basic infrastructure to accommodate visitors and make them more or less comfortable.
