Hi friends, i will be in Sikkim from 21 st Sept to 20th Oct and will be interested in finding trekking partners for a Kadchendzonga trek (7 or 8 days)around beginning of October. Contact me if you are interested.
Won't be able to make that David, but I envy you. It is a place I have long wanted to see. Apologies for a totally useless answer to your question.
We booked our trek with Sikkim Travel Express and they were very efficient right through an email correspondence till we finished our trip. The Kasturi trek which STE suggested was certainly the highlight of our trip.
Sajit and his entire trekking crew were very professional, the equipment, especially the tents, were very good and food was the best we had in India and more than enough ;). Our guide (Sanjay) was excellent who spoke very good English and he was best at creating the team spirit and motivating us during the tough ascends.
We will recommend STE to anyone who wants to do trek in an amazing Sikkim Himalaya.
