Top Places To Visit in Sandakhphu
Hotels and Homestays in Sandakhphu
There are several places to stay along the route. In Sandakphu, I stayed in Sherpa Chalet because of its rooms with great views of the peaks. There is no electricity at these places and the lodges use solar lights for some hours at night. So do not expect luxury amenities like TV etc. However cell phones do work for most part of the route. Room rate is 1200 in ground floor and 1600 in 1st floor.

You can also hire a landrover from maneybhanjan. This is also a village and is a part of the Singalila National Park. As you reach on top of this [point, you will be welcomed with some of the most awesome views including the famous route from Bhutan till Mt. Everest. The view of the mighty River Teesta is also very attractive. This river is apt for river rafting due to the high speed in which the water flows.

Three nights at three different places, Maneybhanjan, Tonglu and at last Sandakphu. From childhood when I used to travel and see any rising of land above plain it made me exciting and would shout "look hills...". And this time the dream was finally accomplished going to land of Himalayas. The trail started from Maneybhanjan a beautiful starting point to Singalia National Park. Singalia National Park is famous for the endangered red panda. It has kept the himalayan beauty of eastern India and will make you return again again in every season.
