Moving through one of the greenest zones on the planet, this trek starts from a small establishment called Yuksom, and takes you to the feet of Mt. Kangchendzonga, the tallest peak in India. Untouched by any effluence, these forests of the Kangchendzonga National Park (KNP) support a fine ecosystem, with innumerous species of unusual flora and fauna. The weather remains clear during the winter and dramatic during the pre-monsoon season, with misty clouds playing around with your imagination. The whole eco-system has maintained itself in harmony as no single tree stands unaccompanied! The giant pine tree supports ferns growing out of the moss that has blanketed the trunk and the branches, coiled by uncanny creepers, on which an army of ants can be seen working really hard, along with various insects and birds forming their nests, colonies and territories distributed all over one single tree, imagine a forest with a million such trees. Its pure joy to see how these big and small figures live in harmony.
