Tonglu Trek

Tonglu trek is probably the most popular of the weekend getaways, specially for the residents of West Bengal and Sikkim. This place is frequented by the foreigners also.

Many people nowadays opt for a weekend trek to Tonglu to take a quick break from their routine bound life. Tonglu is a dreamy village located inside the Singalila National Park in the Darjeeling district, near the India-Nepal border. Mother Nature has showered her abundance to this place. If Weather God is in favor, one can witness the sunrise over "Sleeping Buddha," the massif comprising of the Kanchenjunga, Pandim and the Makalu.
