Trek to Sandakphu

Trek to Sandakphu


Rimbik is a small town in the Singalila National Park area of Darjeeling District of West Bengal. The small town is a tourist hub for trekkers travelling to the Singalila National Park area including Sandakphu. In the recent past there has been some interest from the offbeat leisure tourists who want to explore the region beyond traditional tourist destinations.

Rimbik is perched on a hill above river Rammam flowing from Sikkim to Bengal. The small town is the last major hamlet in the Bengal side and is close to Nepal and Sikkim boarders. The villages in the surrounding area depend on Rimbik market for their regular supplies.

Rimbik town itself does not have too many tourist attractions to offer. There are two trek routes which connect Rimbik with Sandakphu. One is a direct forest trail coming from Bikebhanjan to Rimbik. The other trek route reaches Rimbik via Gurdung and Srikhola. The second trek route although longer, is preferred by most trekkers. From Rimbik an uneven road takes you to Srikhola (about 7 kms) from where you can start your trek. Gurdung is just 3 kms trek from Srikhola towards Sandakphu. Some tourists prefer to trek only till Gurdung thus combining thrill of the Sandakphu trek without getting out of the Leisure tour mode altogether. Between Srikhola and Gurdung lies the small village of Timbure where tourist accommodation is also available. Srikhola and Gurdung offers basic tourist accommodations, Rimbik also has a number of basic tourist accommodations.
