About Trip

Our Day Hike in Darjeeling is the perfect one day getaway to crisp mountain views, after passing through friendly villages and sharing a meal with locals. It is perfect for those who have limited time in Darjeeling, but can’t leave without seeing the colossal Himalayan peaks. In fact, on this single day tour, you will come face to face with Kanchenjunga (8586 meters / 28,169 feet), and if you’re lucky, Mount Everest Family will make an appearance! 

The day hike near Darjeeling valley calls for a 6am wakeup time, and you will return to Darjeeling around 5pm. Leaving the hotel, we drive 2.5 hours through Manebhanjyang to Dhotrey (8,500 feet). Enchanted by the colorful rhododendrons and forest flowers, we are get off at Dhotrey full of excitement. Dhotrey is a scenic village perched among the terraced hillsides. Here, we have a filling breakfast and begin the journey through the dense forests to Tonglu (10,130 feet), which lies 6km from Dhotrey. Tonglu provides the best views of the trek. On a clear day, you can see two of the three highest peaks in the world (Mount Everest Family and Kanchenjunga). Bring your camera, because you might never get such dramatic mountain views like this again!

Descend through a pleasant trail, teeming with herbs and small plants, until Tumling (9,600 feet), about 2km away. Again, get stunning views of the majestic Kanchenjunga peak. From here, the trail guides us downhill through Meghma and Lamhaydhura villages. In Tumling, we have a hearty traditional local meal, packed with energy for the rest of the day. 

Our final destination is Chitrey, about 9 km from Tumling. Here, we meet our driver and head back to Darjeeling our Darjeeling Day Hike  is a perfect escape from the fast-paced city life and into the quiet, peaceful mountain and alpine landscape. Join us today!

    Great! Here's a sample review based on the information you provided:I recently went on a day trek with Ashmita Trek in Darjeeling and it was a fantastic experience. Despite the weather being unstable, our guide Mr. Vinod made the trek enjoyable with his expertise and knowledge. He gave us a detailed description of the local flora during the trek and even let us try the rhododendron vine on the Nepalese side. The trek was very well organised, and the food served was excellent.Although we were unable to see the majestic Kanchendzonga due to the weather, we enjoyed walking through the little hamlets and the rhododendron forests. The infrastructure at all the points was amazing, and our driver, Mr. Deepu Tamang, drove us back and forth without any trouble.I highly recommend Ashmita Trek & Tours if you are planning a trek. Mr. Norbu and Subhash were very flexible with our requests, and our guide, Mr. Vinod, made the trek an unforgettable experience with his knowledge and enthusiasm. Overall, it was a beautiful trek, and I would love to go on another trek with Ashmita Trek & Tours in the future.

    I"ve hiked several different mountains around the world and I have to say that this was my most positive experience yet. I went with the guide Tenzin who was professional, insightful, patient, and wise. I will certainly be returning to hike again with this company and hopefully this same guide " Tenzin".

    sincerely, Hassan Ansah

    We used Ashmita Trek & Tours during our recent visit to Darjeeling. Everything was arranged very well and professionally. From the taxi service from Bagdogra airport to the bike tour and the day trek to Tonglu, our whole experience was great. Special call out to Mr Tenzing our guide and Mr Bhudda our driver who were both very experienced, happy to share their knowledge of the local area, and more importantly trustworthy. Very happy to recommend Ashmita Trek and Tours to anyone travelling to this part of the world.

    Very professional tour agency. They are full of knowledge about the area and have many activities available. We chose to do a one day hike in the Singalila Ridge and it was fantastic. Beautiful nature! Our guide Sangay spoke great English and taught us a lot about the area. Highly recommended!
