These trekking routes have been carefully crafted for nature lovers and Himalayan lake enthusiasts. We invite trekkers to experience the beauty of these lakes and valleys. The Green Lake trek in Sikkim is a thrilling journey for nature lovers. The Green Lake is located at the bottom of Mount Kanchenjunga on the Zemu Glacier, at around 5,000 meters in height. It is a winter wonderland filled with the highest and most majestic Himalayan peaks.

Summer is the best season to undertake this trek since the terrain is already difficult enough without adding the challenges of winter snow to it. However, for those who really want that added level of challenge, the trek trail is also open during the winter months.

The Green Lake trek in Sikkim takes 7 to 9 days to complete. Beginning at Zema, the trek takes one through thickets and over boulders, past colorful rhododendrons and gushing rivers. The days are spent in walking through some of the best sights of Sikkim; it is an intense immersive natural experience and being one with it is truly a blessing. Trekking the route is not easy- the altitude and the rugged terrain make it a challenge for the best of trekkers. 

Even with a good guide and solid gear, these hurdles may be overcome, leaving you feeling satisfied at the finish of your trip. You will traverse Talem, Jakthang, Yabuk, Mount Siniolchu, Mount Simvo, and Green Lake Base Camp throughout your journey. After a few days of enjoying the rewards of your expedition, you may begin your trek home, bearing recollections that will last forever.
