Khangchendzonga National Park, also known as Kanchenjunga Biosphere Reserve, is hidden away in India‘s north-eastern province Sikkim. Getting there is an adventure itself. First: bureaucracy kicks in – you need a special visa to visit Sikkim – and then: jeep rides through deep himalayan valleys can be quite thrilling. Khangchendzonga National Park is home to Kangchenjunga (I’ll spare you any more variations to spell the peak) – the world’s third highest mountain. The few hikers that make their way up there walk along Goecha-La Trek, which takes them high up into the Himalayas. Accomodation and transport are basic, but the experience and the landscape are first class.
