Welcome to West Sikkim

Yuksom, the trek's historic trailhead village, is a delight in its own right and offers some much easier day-hikes, too. Meanwhile, comfort-seekers can settle for stupendous mountain views from busy little Pelling and from quieter, rural Kuluk and Rinchenpong, where you'll also find the lovable yet forgotten Resum Monastery.

The loop of country road between those two passes close to the vertigo-inducing Singshore Bridge on a spur-road to Utterey, yet another fine trekking base, but largely for those who have made advanced arrangements.
