'On the final day, a climb of 5 hours with our bags, which remained a cloudy day throughout, the sun just decided to greet us at the top with the most glorious sunset ever!'

'Sunrise closer to heaven! The view from Phalut has to be seen to be believed. The Kanchenjunga range on one side and Mt Everest on the other!' Milind exclaims at the end of the trip.
'After a hilly and seemingly unending 21 km trek from Sandakphu, the highest point in West Bengal at almost 12,000 ft, you will be greeted with a landscape, a sunrise and sunset too spectacular to ever forget you might even feel like you are flying.'
