Photographer's Note

The route between Sandakphu (12000 ft) to Phalut (12200 ft) offers the best panoramic views of the Himalayas. Indeed, if the weather is clear one can gain fantastic views of the worlds highest and third-highest mountain: Mt. Everest to the West and Mt. Khanchenjunga to the North. This trekking-route is well established with guesthouses for every overnight. On the stretch between Sandakhpu and Phalut trekkers will cross through the Singelela Nationalpark which offers habitat for many endangeres species, indlcuding the Red Panda. Besides many kinds of birds we have come across wolfes and tiger cats in this area.
