The best views in the Himalayas are unavoidably obtained from high up, but the trek along this ridge, which passes through small settlements, provides excellent views. The Sandakhphu trek is one of the most scenically rewarding treks in the Himalayas. This is an excellent trek for experienced trekkers who prefer a Tea-House style trek. In one stretch, the Nepal Himalayas, including the Kanchendzongha range, Makalu, Everest, Lhotse, Janu, Chamlang, Baruntse, and a slew of Sikkim peaks, can be seen. The famous “Sleeping Buddha” peak formation is breathtaking. The Singalila National Park area is a birder's paradise, home to endangered species like the Red Panda. Rhododendron and Magnolia flowering in the spring color the forest red, pink, and white, and the foliage color changes in the fall.
