Singalila National Park

National Park in Darjeeling

The popular Singalila Ridge Trek from Sandakphu to Phalut passes through the scenic Singalila National Park and offers fantastic views of the eastern Himalaya. Guides (about ₹1200 per day) are mandatory within the park (the park entrance is near Tumling) and can be hired privately through trekking agencies in Darjeeling or at the trek’s starting point in Mane Bhanjhang, 26km from Darjeeling. You’re more likely to get a good guide if you organise it up beforehand.
