If you are looking for GOECH LA TREK with lowest prices then your search ends here. Aahvan Adventure is a leading Adventure Travel Operator in India located in Ahmedabad.

Goecha La is a high mountain pass in Sikkim, in the Himalayan range. The southeast face of Mt. Kanchenjunga, the world’s third highest mountain, can be viewed from the pass, which is also a base camp for those who are ambitious to hike the mountain. It is said that the enchanting view of Goech La amazed the government authorities so much that they featured it on the Indian currency (Rs.100/- Note).

The weather remains clear during the winters and spectacular during the pre-monsoon season, with hazy clouds. The whole eco-system is maintained in compatibility and no single tree stands stranded!

The trek is quite challenging in terms of distances to be covered in a day. One needs to get properly used to the conditions, due to the huge changes in altitude over a small time during this trek, which is also another reason for its popularity. Now that you have heard and read so much interesting things about Goech La you just cannot resist yourself from trekking there.
