On the Sandakphu trek, you often camp on the border of India and Nepal. Sometimes, your dining tent might be in India, whereas your sleeping tent might be in Nepal! It is a one-of-a-kind experience.

Sandakphu, being the highest peak in West Bengal offers grand views of the world’s tallest peaks. Lhotse and Makalu, the fourth and fifth highest peaks in the world stand tall at 8,516 mts and 8,463 m, trying to outdo the world’s tallest peak. But how can they? After all, the Everest stands in between them, towering over everything!
