Rajesh Sharma Goechala Trek
About the operators: Thrillophilia ties up with trek operators for this amazing trek. The team that carries the group is well trained, well versed and allows the trekkers to focus on their trekking. To provide service at such altitude with smile on face is bliss. They also have some hidden gems planned during the trek for people to be pleasantly surprised. Our trek guide Premtuk is an old hand and lives in Yaksum region. His ability to guide the team as well as captain the support staff was fantastic. He also made sure that trekkers were absolutely taken care off. He had excellent support staff and 12 horses to make sure that we had a glitch-free day’s and nights. Tenzing, vijay and others who worked tirelessly and with laughter all the time made the time memorable. About the trek: this trek offers variety for a serious trekker. The trails and paths are not the same throughout or even different times of the year. It has varied degree of difficulty and hence one needs to be physically and mentally prepared to harness the strength. One connects to self and nature throughout and comes back rejuvenated. It’s not just the moments of seeing sunrise or the summit from various points or watching Mt Pantim alone that takes your breath away but also the journey. It’s a pilgrimage to your own inner self that one ends up discovering. Finally few words of suggestions: for city dwellers who come for this trek, it’s a great idea to come and stay In yuksam few days in advance and do some of other amazing treks. Not only it helps in acclimatisation but also allows you to soak in local culture and food.
Vipin C Goechala Trek
"The beauty of this trek is all about the landscape. You start of the trek from dense forest with fresh streams and then to Rhododendron trees when you gain altitude , later which you would come across a beautiful valley overlooking Mt Kanchenjunga. Try out the local cuisine in Yuksom. Thukpa and Chang are two things you need to try out. Although the trek is not recommended for first time trekkers you can still give it a shot provided you are fit and have taken all the items in checklist. "

Bishakha Nayak North Sikkim Tour
This was my first trip with Thrillophilia as well as with complete strangers. I must say that Thrillophilia did not disappoint me ( nobody is perfect, so be flexible to accept minute glitches) . The whole trip went so smooth , starting from the pick up from airport, the hotels we got, arrangement of permits, site seeing and drop at the airport. Special thanks to Deep ( trip coordinator from tour angle) and Ammu ( my cab driver) . P. S. : if you want to see the flower calf yumthang valley and the frozen Tsomgo and Gurudongmar lake , then the ideal time to visit north Sikkim is March-April. November is the ideal time to witness the pleasant winter of sikkim along with its untouched beauty. Looking forward to travel more with Thrillophilia. P.S: the only problem which we faced was two co- passengers who used to get late for everything and because of them we had to rush from each location because of time constraint ( I totally understand that this things isn’t in the hand of Thrillophilia)

Apsara Mahajan Goechala Trek
Trekking in the state of Sikkim is very different and a unique experience that you would not gain from trekking in any other part of India. The Indian Himalayas trek in Sikkim is awesome and a must take. What we enjoyed the most were the mountains, the trek trails, the people and their unique culture. This was a sharp contrast to our habits and culture. The trek is not that difficult and it is in fact very much feasible to be taken even by a first timer as well. The trekking was very nicely planned and organized with perfect budget. Do try this trek.

Suryakanta Patil Goechala Trek
Located in the state of Sikkim, this Goecha La trek is my dream and desire come true. This trek is a treat to all the adventure lovers who are in our country or visit our country. This place is nestled midst colourful, unique, and vibrant flora and fauna. This trek also paves way to the astounding Kanchenjunga National Park that can be visited in a day. This trek is an opulent beauty as it opens doors to murky valleys, snow clad mountain peaks, astonishing lakes, and lovely rivers in Sikkim. I was just marvelled at the spectacular beauty of this place.

This was my first paragliding experience and I was so thrilled and scared both at the same time. This March I was going to Gangtok and came to know about the paragliding activity there and booked the same with Thrillophilia and made the most of the thrills and spills of Paragliding. After heading to the paragliding spot in Ranka at Gangtok. I was accompanied by a trained pilot throughout the entire activity when we soared at a height of 1300- 2200 meters. The best thing about Thrillophilia is that it not only gives you an option to choose between medium and high fly but regardless of the package you choose, the ride from the landing site to the take-off point is all included. I chose the high fly package where I and my certified pilot rose at a height of 2200 meters, marveling at nature’s beauty underneath. After this paragliding trip, I must say that this has been my best so far, given the whole safety protocols that Thrillophilia adhered to besides arranging a trip to the Ranka monastery. Thus, I recommend Thrillophilia with all my heart, for such out-of-the-box experiences!

Who does not dream of a farmhouse stay amidst the rolling Himalayan Mountains and an emerald green forest? Yes, I am no different because I have craved for such an experience all my life and I am extremely glad that Thrillophilia came on board to grant all that I desired. My 2 days one night experiential stay at a Farmhouse in Gangtok not just let me have a perfect getaway but so much more. I learnt about terrace farming, plucked ripe fruits from the trees, enjoyed picnics along the streams, and tried my hands on organic farming. I still miss my bedroom in the homestay that had a skylight right above the bed to let me stargaze endlessly. Thank you Thrillophilia for such a splendid experience!
19 January 2021
A tour of Sikkim and Darjeeling was always on my mind having heard so much about the Yumthang (valley of flowers), the Batasia loop and the mighty tiger hill to catch a scenic sunrise. As a solo traveler I decided to book with Thrillophilia for a 8-day trip to set forth a Sikkim Darjeeling tour that would include all these places. I am extremely elated I did as the teams ensured hassle free travel in air-conditioned vehicles besides stays and dinner at the most hygienic hotels. I am back at Pune after the trip in March but I feel I am back with a piece of Tibet and North Bengal in my heart. I still cherish going to this picturesque hamlet of Chungthang, the stunning Kanchenjunga National Park, and the pristine Gurudongmar Lake. I have absolutely loved my stopover at Kyongnosla and a visit to the Baba Harbhajan dham besides of course the scenic sunrise at Tiger hill, and candlelight dinner at the most unexpected locations. Thanks a ton Thrillophilia for the most wholesome experience there could be!

My partner got hold of a Thrillophilia voucher for a Sikkim homestay that initially I was not that keen on using. However, I went ahead and set off for this Traveler’s paradise homestay for 2 days and one night. And, I am so glad I did because it was one of the nicest stay experiences. Our homestay was perched on a hilltop’s edge and offered sweeping views of the Himalayan foothills, the snowy Nathula peaks, and the snaking Teesta River. A special thanks to thrillophilia for giving tripping a whole new spin as we could go for forest picnics, nature walks, and practice angling at the Kaleej Khola. To this day, I keep telling my partner as to how we need another trip soonish. Only, to try the roast chicken with thumba, under a starlit sky of the Traveler’s paradise homestay, with the chilling mountain wind for company.

A complete year of no travels or moving owing to the lockdown left me feeling highly depressed. It is then that me and my friends quickly planned a trip that would include the total Silk route. Staying in Kolkata this is the closest destination we could travel. But, after a lot of deliberations as to who will arrange the trip we thought of giving Thrillophilia a try. And, we are so glad we did. We were greeted and had the warmest welcome on arrival at the Bagdogra airport before one of Thrillophilia’s representatives transferred us to the pristine Sillery gaon. No wonder the hamlet is called New Darjeeling as the place looks like heaven with the tall pine trees and offers uninterrupted views of the Kanchenjunga mountain. We stayed at a plush guesthouse with well-washed linens and clean washrooms. Later, we left for Aritar, spent a night there and after a wholesome breakfast, proceeded to Zuluk to spend a happening evening. At a remote place such as Zuluk Thrillophilia ensured we stayed at a comfy hotel. If you have the silk route in mind and desire to experience the Tibetan culture at its best then this 6 day trip to some of the most gorgeous locations of Lampokhari lake, Reshikola, Kupup lake, Jelep La pass, Tukla Valley and several more, will woo you beyond measure.
