Peak view­ing

Action Asia - - REAL DEALS -

WHERE ELSE CAN YOU SEE FOUR OF THE world’s high­est peaks in one sin­gle panorama? Mt Ever­est, Makalu, Lhotse and Kanchen­junga all stand tall in front of you from the amaz­ing San­dak­phu view­point. The San­dak­phu trek lies in the high­est re­gion of West Ben­gal, In­dia. The seven-day trek, of­fered by Thril­lophilia, be­gins at the charm­ing town of Mane Bhan­jyang and passes over the in­ter­na­tional bor­der to Nepal. The route will then take trekkers through the re­gions of Tum­ling, Kaiyakata, Kalpokhri and Srikhola, all far less ac­cus­tomed to for­eign trekking groups than, say, the Khumbu or An­na­purna re­gions. The to­tal dis­tance walked is 44km, much of it on paths used mostly by lo­cals. Tour costs in­clude ac­com­mo­da­tion, trans­port, equip­ment and en­try fees. Prices and de­tails are avail­able on www.thril­lophilia.com. Make a reser­va­tion and wit­ness the breath­tak­ing beauty of the Hi­malayas first­hand.
