Mt. Thinchenkhan

This peak is significantly recognized by the Government of Sikkim for trekking and climbing. This destination is like a window to the divine lakes, snow-capped mountains, divine lakes, and spectacular beauty. Mt. Tenchenkhang has been appreciated by many climbers for offering an adrenaline climb. This mountain of 6010 meters offers a stunning view of the Himalayas and Mount Makalu of Nepal and we don’t think there is a better spot for mountaineering in Sikkim than this.
