Where in India can you expect to find one place where you can see Mt.Everest as well as Mt.Kanchenjunga from the same place? There are probably very few such places where it is possible. Sandakphu is one of them.
Sandakphu is the tallest peak in the state of West Bengal, standing at a height of 3636 meters. Its location close to the high Himalayan ranges aids it with some great views of the tallest mountains on earth.
Thankfully, despite its high location, there is a small village at the peak and basic accommodation is available for travellers. On the top, it is not just view of the distant mountains, but also the verdant hills and rhododendron forests that appeal to the visitors.
Approach to Sandakphu however is not simple. It takes a long days walk to the peak, or a difficult jeep ride through rough roads. The view from the top would be worth the effort of the journey.
