Green lake trekking

The Green Lake Trek lies in the northern part of Sikkim. This trek is rewarding due to its natural beauty walking with the variety of flowers like rhododendrons, blue poppies and primulas all in bloom. The mountain views are fantastic as you will feel like you are in an amphitheater of peaks with Khangchendzonga at the head of the valley. However, the Green lakes base camp is more than 5000 metres and so proper acclimatization is essential to avoid altitude sickness.
