The Sandakphu trekking route falls under Singalila National Park. Sandakphu at an altitude of 11,229 feet is the highest point of Singalila ridge. It is a famous trekking route and offers the most magnificent views of the Himalayas especially the entire Kangchenjunga Range. Tourists have to travel in Jeeps in that location as roads are pretty bad and cases of road accidents are high in the area.
