Sandakphu is a pristine area in the eastern Himalayas near the magnificent mountains of northwest Bangladesh, sometimes across the border from Nepal, not far from the famous hills of Darjeeling.
Singalila Ridge, which runs north to south, separates Bengal from the other eastern Himalayas and what is now the west. It is mostly harmonious in West Bengal, Sikkim and part of the westernmost part of Nepal. Singalila National Park is a pristine perennial green plant that mainly wraps around ridges and is protected by pristine wildlife. Sandakphu trek is the pinnacle of this forested ridge.
“Poisonous grass beak”, it literally means sandakphu. These types can be attributed to the flowering of some poisonous plant genera nearby. One is “Aconitum”, a permanent shrub whose roots have been used as medicine, and its luminous purple-blue flowers and leaves can be fatal if eaten recklessly. The other is the Himalayan cobra lily, which is also a rich region.
Sandakphu is the famous name for moderately light walking in the hiker’s world. The altitude of 11,930 feet is the top of the Singalila mountain range and national park. What makes the highest point in West Bengal so special?
What’s so special about it? Chapter
The Unmissable Place in the Eastern Himalayas Chapter
The golden hue of sunrise, Mount Everest (29,029 feet, highest), Lhotse (27,940 feet, fourth highest) and Makalu (27,838 feet, fifth highest) at Sleeping Buddha (Kangchenjunga Mountain, 38,169) Feet, third-highest) can be seen in all five lofts.
The landscape from west to the east includes incredible mountain peaks from Nepal, Tibet, Sikkim, Bhutan, and Arunachal. It’s a shame to witness the sunrise from here when the bright red-gold shadows of the rolling wolves in the valley below shine on the massive snow-capped mountains.
Is walking in Sandap the only way to get there?
No. Don’t. It is also mobile. However, there is fishing. No one can drive on flat asphalt. This is difficult and can only be done with a sturdy 4/4 SUV. Full of loose rocks, unstable curves and steep accents, extraordinary driving skills are required to reach Sandap without causing serious damage to the vehicle.
old Land Rover vehicles located between Manebhanjan and Sandakphu and until recently until the colonial era of Phalut were banned by local authorities on the grounds that the vehicles did not meet the existing safety and environmental standards, but the tourists reluctantly left. (As of January 30, 2018).
The West Bengal government subsidized its owners to purchase Bolero to eliminate Land Rover. Everyone says that some ground vehicles are still on the road. I may have heard of them from some locals.
This summer, Jaguar Land Rover celebrated its 70th anniversary with all its models in the region. From series I, the first to discovery, the most recent. Discussed many iconic features and traditions of this routine with Land Rovers. The first 30 kilometers of
are trekking from Chitre (2 kilometers from Manebhanjan) to Sandakphu, and the other 21 kilometers is the gravel road to Phalut (Singalila’s second highest peak).
Currently, the route is 20 kilometers from Manebhanjan to Gairibas Square, partly using asphalt and partly using concrete. The last twelve kilometers of Sandakphu and Phalut 21. The last twelve kilometers are the same.
Cycling is also an option, but this is a very difficult area to navigate. This should no longer be a problem, but not only the efficiency of the bike, but also the skill and operation of the rider will correctly test the rest of the route.

Of course, your knees and bare muscles will be a little sore, or sometimes you will twist or fall, but that is part of the adventure. There are countless beginners like me, so the Trekkers keep pleading with them.
