Sikkim government is planning to launch eco-tourism at Mt Kanchenjunga. When launched, this initiative will let adventure lovers, mountaineers and trekkers circumambulate the mountain in a 15-day trek. The trek will start from the Kanchenjunga National Park (KNP) and will bring travellers in closest encounters with the snow-capped peaks, the local temples, the flora, the fauna and the uniquebiodiversity of the region surrounding this mountain.
Slated to be organised by the Sikkim government in association with the Indian Mountaineering Foundation (IMF), the treks are most likely to take place during the summer months as the weather is the most favourable at that time.
State Resident Commissioner Gobind Mohan told that Our aim is to provide highest level of professional support and logistics to nature lover enthusiasts during the parikrama tour through the State Tourism Department and registered tour and travel agencies.
